The Suwannee River Wilderness Trail is a defined network of natural, recreational, and historical sites along the Suwannee River offering visitors a wilderness experience rich in natural and cultural resources. The trail gives visitors the opportunity to navigate the world-famous Suwannee River to enjoy its springs, sandbars and rocky banks, and the ambiance of small towns along its route. Beginning at the town of White Springs and stretching 170 miles to the salt marsh shores of the Gulf of Mexico, the trail's river-based experiences include outfitter tours, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, snorkeling, and camping. Visitors can extend their wilderness adventure into land-based experiences by stepping back in time to explore small towns, local shops, art and antique galleries, and museums and visitor centers showcasing this region's "Old Florida" culture and rich history. Recreational activities such as bicycling, hiking, and horseback riding can be arranged.

Editor Tips & Helpful Hints
  • If you don't have the desire to paddle all 170 miles, try an overnight jaunt between the trail's town-based "hubs," which are interspersed by river camps that are a day's paddle between these hubs.
  • Many of central Florida's freshwater springs are located along this trail, great places for swimming and snorkeling.
