Madison County Springs

Madison Blue Spring
From I-10, go north (left) on exit 38 (County Road 255). Cross U.S. 90 at Lee and continue to State Road 6 (about 4 miles). Turn right and proceed 3-4 miles to the spring on the right just before crossing the Withlacoochie River.

Hamilton County Springs

Pot Spring
By canoe, the spring is about 45 minutes downriver from Madison Blue (see above for directions). By car, from I-10, go north (left) on exit 38 (County Road 255). Cross U.S. 90 at Lee and continue to State Road 6 (about 4 miles). Turn right and travel east for 5-6 miles, across the Withlacoochie River to County Road 143. Turn right and look for signs to the spring. Alternatively, one may put a canoe in at Madison Blue Spring and canoe downriver for approximately 35 minutes. Spring is on the left (east) bank adjacent to the river. Pot is a few minutes downstream of the unnamed seeps, cascades, and spring described above.

Suwannacoochie Spring
A two-minute walk on a dirt path in the NE corner of the small park where U.S. 90 crosses the Suwannee River on the NW side of the river. Alternatively, a four-minute paddle downriver from the boat ramp in Suwannee River State Park to the confluence with the Withlacoochie River and a 2-minute paddle up the Withlacoochie River to the spring structure on the west side.

Tanner Spring
By canoe, the spring is about 90 minutes downriver from Madison Blue (see that spring for directions). By car, from I-10, go north (left) on exit 38 (County Road 255). Cross U.S. 90 at Lee and continue to State Road 6 (about 4 miles). Turn right and travel east for 4-5 miles to Madison Blue on the right at the bridge over the Withlacoochie River. Alternatively, one may put in a canoe at either the Highway 143 boat ramp (from County road 6 take Highway 143 south around two sharp curves to the first graded road on the right. Follow this road to the ramp), or another boat ramp between the Highway 143 ramp and the launch at Madison Blue (from the river go west on County Road 6 to the first graded road on the south side of the road. Follow the road 0.7 miles and the take the left fork to the ramp). The latter ramp is the nearest above the spring.

Ham612982 Spring
From I-10, go north (left) on exit 38 (County Road 255). Cross U.S. 90 at Lee and continue to State Road 6 (about 4 miles). Turn right and proceed about 4 miles to Madison Blue Spring on the right just before crossing the Withlacoochie River. Put in at Madison Blue and canoe 5-10 minutes downriver. Spring is on the left.

White (or White Sulfur) Spring
The spring is 0.1 mile west of the intersection of U.S. 41 and State Road 136 on the Suwannee River in White Springs. Look for signs to the Stephen Foster State Folk Culture Center. As you approach the Culture Center, you will see the old spring house on the left. You can pay to enter the park, or park at the spring for no charge.

Holton Creek Rise
Located at or near Old Town in Hamilton County, FL in the Suwannee River Basin.

Alapaha Rise Spring
From Madison, take U.S. 90 east 2-3 miles until the fork with State Road 6. Take SR6 east, across the Withlacoochie River, and proceed about 12 miles to County Road 751. Turn right and drive about four miles to Suwannee River. Take boat ramp at Hutch Gibson Park (on the NW side of the river), and canoe upriver about ¼ mile. A few hundred feet past the CR751 bridge, you will see water rushing out with great force on the left—it is the mouth of the spring run.
