Note: Advance reservations are strongly encouraged for both tubing and paddling. Reservations will both ensure your float experience on your selected date and get you on the river more quickly upon your arrival at the park. Liability waivers are required for both tubing and paddling and should be completed online as part of the reservation process.
There are three hiking trails located at the North Entrance of the park. Trail maps are available at the Ranger Station or information booth.
A half-mile walk through the Ichetucknee forest and cypress flood plain leads to Blue Hole Spring, the largest spring in the park.
This shaded path winds along the crystal clear waters of the Ichetucknee River. The self-guided trail will take you back in time to the early 1900s, when phosphate ore was mined in the area. Walking time is approximately 30 minutes.
A frequently overlooked area of the park is the majestic sandhill, with its towering longleaf pine and wide open vistas. View the natural diversity of this unique and vanishing ecosystem. The self-guided, two-mile loop trail will take approximately 1 hour and 15 minutes.
