Santa Fe River Canoe Trail
The Santa Fe River Canoe Trail is officially designated as part of Florida’s Statewide System of Greenways and Trails. This beautiful trail begins in O’Leno State Park, where the Santa Fe reappears after flowing underground for more than three miles. This tributary of the Suwannee River curves past hardwood hammocks and through river swamps. Many clear springs feed the Santa Fe. There are some small shoals during low water, but they are almost always passable. Wildlife is abundant along the trail. Look for turtles, alligators, and wading birds. The trail ends three miles upstream of the confluence of the Santa Fe and the Suwannee River.
