Lafayette County Springs

Steinhatchee Spring
From the intersection of U.S. 19/98/27A and State Road 51, drive north on SR 51 for 3.9 miles. Turn right (east) onto well-graded dirt road and drive about ½ mile. After crossing the Steinhatchee River, turn left (north) onto first road. Drive 0.8 miles past several houses. Take left at fork and the spring will be on the left.

Cork Spring
On the west bank of the Suwannee River about 1.5 miles east of the hamlet of Day.

Allen Mill Pond Spring
From Mayo, travel northwest on U.S. 27/SR 20 for 3-4 miles. Turn right onto Highway 251B and proceed about three miles to tract entrance. Turning right at the sign (also at the house of the tract caretaker) will lead down a dirt road to the lower end of the spring run. The spring is further north on 251B. Look for roped-off entrance on the right just after the paved road ends. Walk into the entrance, turn left, walk about 75 yards. Then at crossroad at small building, turn right onto trail. Then take the first left (after a sinkhole on the left) and walk down to the spring.

Blue Spring
From Mayo, travel northwest on U.S. 27/SR 20 for 3-4 miles. Turn right onto Highway 251B (look for sign for the spring), go about two miles, and then turn right (east) at the sign for Blue Springs. Follow dirt road to the entrance.

Convict Spring
From Mayo, drive east on U.S. 27 about four miles to Convict Springs Road. The road is marked by a unique sign–a small blue "house" with a canoe on top and an American Flag. Across from it, Airline Baptist Church with a sign proclaiming "Jesus Saves." Turn left and go 1.5 miles until the road bends to the left. Go straight ahead instead, where the road turns to dirt. Signs point to Jim Hollis' River Rendezvous, about ½ mile down the road. The turnoff is marked by a large sign for Jim Hollis’ River Rendezvous.

Mearson Spring
From Mayo, drive east and south on U.S. 27 about five miles. Turn left onto CR 251 and go about two miles to where it dead-ends at a boat ramp on the Suwannee River. The spring is on the right bank ½-1 mile downstream.

Troy Spring
Troy Spring is currently reachable only by water. From Branford, drive about 5 miles NW on U.S. 27. Turn right on CR 425, which angles to the northeast. Go about a mile on the paved road and as it bends to the left, turn right onto a wide dirt road at a large wooden sign that says, "Troy Spring Conservation Area." Go 0.7 miles to the first road on your left – at small wooden sign saying "Canoe launch." Go about 0.6 miles and turn left onto a narrow dirt road, just wide enough for a car, until you reach the end.

Ruth Spring
From Branford, drive about 5 miles NW on U.S. 27. Turn right on CR 425, which angles to the northeast. Go about a mile on the paved road and as it bends to the left, turn right onto a wide dirt road at a large wooden sign that says, "Troy Spring Conservation Area.," which is managed by the Suwannee River Water Management District. Turn right off the paved road, and drive about 1.2 miles to the third road to the left. Turn left and proceed to Ruth Spring.

Sulfur Spring (or LAF718971)
From the boatramp in Branford, proceed approximately ½ mile upriver and look for the mouth of the spring run on the left (south side).
