Alachua County Farmers Market

The Alachua County Farmer's Market is a grower's only market. What this means is that the people selling produce, plants, and other products at the ACFM must have grown the items themselves. They are NOT allowed to purchase produce from other farms or wholesalers and resell it. That is why there are certain crops, like asparagus, that are not available. They simply don't grow well in Florida.rnWhen you go to the market, you are meeting real farmers. While they may have some non-farming helpers behind their booths, there will be at least one person who can tell you how the crops were grown, whether or not they are organic, and what variety they are. Plant sellers can tell you whether a particular shrub needs shade or sun and how often it should be watered.rnBy shopping at the ACFM, you are supporting Florida farmers at the same time as getting wonderful fresh produce and beautiful plants at a great price. We thank you for helping Florida agriculture thrive.

Aunt Louise's Farm

Aunt Louises Farm is located in Jefferson County, more specifically Waukeenah, Florida. Our farm is forever growing, expanding and evolving. About 18 years ago we bought ourselves a goat. No one told us that 1 lone goat is an unhappy goat! So, of course, we had to buy another one. Then we bought a few chickens so we could have fresh eggs. Fast forward to 2016. We now have quite a menagerie of critters, as I like to call them. Currently, we have 30 or so goats, 9 sheep, 14 ducks, 3 alpacas, 5 pigs, 3 guinea fowl, 40+ chickens, 15 rabbits, 6 zebu cattle, 3 dairy cows, 2 Great Pyrenees, 8 mini horses, sebastopol geese, turkeys, and peacocks. (And you never know what Aunt Louise might bring home tomorrow!) We now produce enough eggs to sell, raise a lot of our own meat, have enough lard to make soap and sometimes have our own fresh goats milk. In the fall we open our farm to the public for about six weeks. Entry is $8 per person, children 3 y.o. and under are free. You are able to explore the three-acre corn maze that has lots of scarecrows and silly signs for entertainment. Additionally we have homemade jams, jellies, soaps, pound cake in a jar, fresh pecans (hopefully) and pumpkins. You may also buy snacks to feed the animals. For added fun we have a tour ride with Aunt Louise, a barrel train ride, face painting, and two corn pits to play in. We will have concessions for sale: hot dogs, snow cones, corn bread waffles and drinks.

Big Shoals State Park

Big Shoals State Park features the largest whitewater rapids in Florida. Limestone bluffs, towering 80 feet above the banks of the Suwannee River, afford outstanding vistas not found anywhere else in Florida. When the water level on the Suwannee River is between 59 and 61 feet above mean sea level, the Big Shoals rapids earn a Class III Whitewater classification, attracting thrill-seeking canoe and kayak enthusiasts. Over 28 miles of wooded trails provide opportunities for hiking, biking, horseback riding and wildlife viewing. Visitors who wish to view the Big Shoals rapids should park at the Big Shoals parking area and hike approximately 1 mile on the Big Shoals hiking trail (Yellow Blaze trail). There is no vehicle access to either the Big Shoals or Little Shoals rapids.

Visit Gainesville

Gainesville is the proud home of the University of Florida. And for some people, that's the beginning and end of the story. But a few minutes spent on this site, followed hopefully by a visit sometime in the near future, and the story changes in a big way. Gainesville isn't just a great college town. It's a great town. Period. It's where nature and culture meet. Where trees draped in Spanish moss line quaint Old South inspired streets. Where a cozy quintessential downtown exudes hospitality, comfort, and at times, a certain refined ease in its shops and restaurants. Where state parks are a virtual playground of world-class natural springs, sinkholes, waterways and waterfalls, shady pine forests, flora and fauna, and amazing natural North Florida sunsets. And where the surrounding towns like High Springs, Alachua, Cross Creek and Micanopy dial-up the charm even further each in their own individual way. So, welcome to Gainesville. It's a little of what you might expect, and a lot of what you wouldn't. Whether you're staying for a day, week, weekend or longer, we look forward to helping you create your own unforgettable story. One we hope you'll tell again and again.

Dudley Farm Historic State Park

Dudley Farm is an early pioneer farm established before the Civil War. Currently it covers 325 of the original 640 acres that were operated by the Dudley family for three generations. An authentic working farm, the homestead consists of eighteen buildings. These are restored - NOT recreated - and include the family farmhouse with original furnishings, an 1880's kitchen outbuilding, a general store and post office, and a cane syrup complex. Park staff in period clothing perform daily chores, raising crops, and tending to livestock. The farm features seasonal cane grindings, corn shuckings, and heritage varieties of livestock and plants. Deer, wild turkeys, gopher tortoises, and bluebirds are still seen in the fields. Our hope is that it will become not simply a static historic site, but rather a living laboratory where future Floridians can step back in time to feel what it is like to till the earth, plow a field, plant a crop, bring the harvest in, mark the changes of the seasons, and like the Dudleys, call a place home.rnrnThe following map and trail guide are provided courtesy of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida State Parks.rnClick here for map and brochure.

The bats normally emerge during a 15- to 20-minute period after sunset, before total darkness on calm, warm evenings when temperatures are above 65 F. Bats may swoop near those observing the emergence to eat insects attracted to the carbon dioxide in human breath, however they will not attack or harm people when left alone. High winds, heavy rain or cold temperatures will keep the bats in the house for the evening. On warm winter evenings, the bats may come out for a drink of water at the lake and exercise; however they can eat only when bugs are flying.

OLeno State Park

rnO’Leno State Park is located on the banks of the scenic Santa Fe River, a tributary of the Suwannee River.  The distinctive geological feature of the park is the River Sink where the Santa Fe River disappears underground to re-emerge three miles south at River Rise Preserve State Park.  Numerous sinkhole lakes may be seen from the trails throughout the park.  The Limestone Trail guides visitors to an abandoned quarry that played a significant role in providing building materials for construction during the Civilian Conservation Corps era.rnThe Natural Land Bridge that spans the distance between River Sink and River Rise provided an easy passage over the Santa Fe River from as early as 7,000 BC.  The old Spanish trail and the first federally funded road connecting St. Augustine and Pensacola used this crossing.rnIn the mid 1800s, the town of Leno was founded along the banks of the Santa Fe River just upstream from where the river disappears.  The first telegraph linking Florida to the outside world passed through Leno. In 1896, the railroad bypassed the tiny town, causing Leno’s inevitable decline.  By the turn of the century the settlement was only a memory.  The old wire road and mill dams are all that remain of this early pioneer town.  Acquired in the early 1930s by the Florida Board of Forestry, the park was developed by the Civilian Conservation Corps (CCC) and the Works Progress Authority primarily for use as a summer forestry camp.  Several of the original structures are still in use today.rnO’Leno State Park is one of Florida’s first state parks.  Along with River Rise Preserve State Park, these state parks offer over 6,000 acres of camping, swimming, canoeing, hiking, cycling and many miles of equestrian trails.  Some of the most diverse recreation in the area can be found here.rnrnThe park accommodates family, youth, primitive and group camping.  The two family camping areas feature 61 sites, each equipped with electric and water, a picnic table and fire ring.  There are centralized restrooms with showers for each area.rnYouth tent camping areas are reserved for organized non-profit youth groups.  Other primitive camping is available at Sweetwater Lake, accessible by a 6.5 mile hiking trail.  rnO’Leno’s Group Camp has 16 cabins, a dining hall, meeting building and an open-air pavilion.  The dining hall is equipped with cooking utensils and place settings for 125.  The cabins can accommodate 60.

San Felasco Hammock Preserve State Park

rnThe San Felasco Hammock is one of the finest and largest remaining examples of mature upland hardwood forest, Florida’s richest, most diverse ecosystem.  This 7,300-acre preserve includes about 25 different natural communities, including the rare upland mixed woodland, upland pine, sandhill, and a host of wetland habitats.  Sinkholes, seepage springs, ponds and swamps dot the landscape.  The limestone outcrops, extreme changes in elevation, and shady canopy of the Hammock provide optimal conditions for many species of hardwood trees, herbs and ferns rarely seen elsewhere.  Rare and unusual plants can be found along the slopes of the ravines and sinkholes.  The park is also home to several champion trees.rnBlues Creek, Turkey Creek and Cellon Creek all enter San Felasco from outside the park boundary and flow through the park, finally dropping into swallows, which drain back into the aquifer.  These “stream to sink” systems are common in the area due to the underlying limestone geology.  The western portions of the preserve are dominated by longleaf pine communities, which are routinely managed with prescribed fires designed to mimic the natural fires that once burned these woodlands.rnThe park provides habitat for wildlife such as bobcat, white-tailed deer, gray fox and turkey.  Less obvious wildlife species include many species of reptiles and amphibians, including gopher tortoises, gopher frogs, Florida mice and mole salamanders.  San Felasco Hammock is also renowned as a popular birding destination since the wide variety of natural habitats provide for many species of birds.rnThe following map and trail guide are provided courtesy of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Florida State Parks.rnClick here for map and brochure.

Suwannee River Wilderness Trail

rnThe Suwannee may be Florida’s best-known river.  In the past, this fame came by way of a popular song.  Today, however,  it is the relative “wildness” of the Suwannee that makes it a natural wonder.  Along its entire 235-mile length, only a handful of small communities overlook her waters; the largest having populations barely exceeding 1,000.  Away from towns, homes are relatively scarce.  In some places you can travel for miles without seeing any sign of civilization. rnThe Trail starts at White Springs and follows the river for 171 miles to the Gulf of Mexico.  Central to this system are eight “hubs,” mostly state parks and towns that offer a variety of activities and services for trail users.  While the trail is primarily geared toward paddlers, the hubs offer trail users the opportunity to expand their exploration of the area by bicycle, horseback, or on foot.  In the hub towns of White Springs, Dowling Park, Branford, Fanning Springs and Suwannee, overnight accommodations can be found in hotels and inns.  The park hubs, located at Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park, Suwannee River State Park, Lafayette Blue Springs State Park and Fanning Springs State Park, have vacation cabins that sleep six people and are furnished with gas fireplaces, kitchenette and screened porch.  At the privately owned Spirit of the Suwannee Music Park, you can sleep in your tent, cabin or a tree house!rnBetween hubs, in more remote areas along the river, “river camps” have been built to serve paddlers on the trail.  These can be accessed by river only. The river camps all have the same components — five screened sleeping platforms with electricity and ceiling fans, restrooms with hot showers, potable water, picnic areas and fire rings.  While they all have the same basic features, each river camp has its own personality.  Whereas the platforms at Holton Creek river camp are situated in a deeply shaded stand of hardwoods, interspersed among sinkholes and swales, Adams River camp is high, dry and open — a reflection of the surrounding longleaf pine community.rnA one-page map of the trail is provided by the Suwannee River Water Management District.rnClick here for the one-page map.rnThe following 72-page Suwannee River Widlerness Trail guide is provided courtesy of Visit Natural North Florida.rnClick here for trail guidernTO MAKE RESERVATIONS:rn • For cabins at any of the Florida state parks along the Suwannee River, call Reserve America at 800.326.3521 or (866) I CAMP FL or visit www.ReserveAmerica.com.  Fees vary.rn • For river camps, or to get information about additional lodging elsewhere along the trail, call 800.868.9914.  Fees may apply.rn • For lodging elsewhere along the trail, view the Places to Stay sectionn of this website or www.SuwanneeRiver.com for a list of private campgrounds, cabins, motels and bed and breakfasts.rnBefore starting your trip, you should consider visiting the State of Florida’s Suwannee River Wilderness Trail Headquarters, located at 4298 NW County Road 292, Mayo, FL (800.868.9914, 386.294.1120).  The headquarters includes brochures and displays about the trail. rnHere is an intersting article about one person's solo paddle of the entire Suwanee River.rnDisclaimer: The Original Florida Tourism Task Force (dba VisitNatural Nroth Florida) and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council do not warrant the accuracy or timeliness of this map and paddle guide or the safety of this trail for use by paddlers.  Paddlers should use this trail only if they have the adequate skill level and dquipment, and paddlers must make that determination.  Paddlers should also check weather forecases and wter levels in advance to avoid any unnecessary danger.  The Original Florida Tourism Task Force, the local governments in which these paddling trails are located and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council are not responsible for any damages whatsoever from its use.

Withlacoochee River North

This tea-colored river gently curves through Twin Rivers State Forest past hardwood forests, crystal-clear springs, and sandbars along the bends. There are some small shoals, but portaging is generally not necessary. The Withlacoochee contributes a significant amount of water to the Suwannee River and the two rivers merge at Suwannee River State Park. The trail ends at the boat ramp in the state park, about a quarter-mile upstream on the Suwannee River. Historically, the junction of the Withlacoochee and Suwannee Rivers was an important point of commerce. In the 1800's, both rivers were used as major commercial routes.

Wakulla river

Wildlife is abundant along this clear, spring-fed river lined with majestic, moss-draped cypress trees.  Manatees, once seen only in summer, are now spotted year-round. Look carefully for manatee at the US 98 bridge and around an island mid-way on the river, just before the power lines. Paddlers can choose between two bridges south of Wakulla Springs State Park to access the river. The current is usually gentle enough to paddle up and back for any distance desired.rnThe Wakulla River is a popular paddling destination and suitable for beginners. On weekends and during the summer months the river may be crowded with powerboats and people floating in tubes. Enjoy a more serene experience by visiting on weekdays or during north Florida’s pleasant winter months. The current is generally mild enough and water levels sufficient to be able to paddle from either the CR 365 bridge or the US 98 bridge and make a round trip going upstream or downstream. It is about 4 miles distance between the two bridges, the designated trail endpoints. You may also extend your trip by paddling further downstream to the St. Marks City Park, (2.6 miles downstream from the US 98 Bridge) or further downstream to the historic fort site at San Marcos de Apalachee Historic State Park (3.2 miles from the US 98 Bridge). At this site the Wacissa River joins the St Marks River and both form an ever-widening channel to the Gulf of Mexico, bordering the unspoiled St Marks National Wildlife Refuge.

Wacissa River

rnThe Wacissa River is one of Florida’s wildest and most diverse rivers, with numerous springs and abundant wading birds.  The river is a magnet for wildlife and a recreation hub for swimmers, snorkelers, boaters and anglers.  This well-loved river offers rewarding excursions for beginning paddlers or families with children.  The upper river can become crowded with boats and paddlecraft on weekends; the lower river tends to be quieter.rnFor several miles below Goose Pasture, the Wacissa diffuses into several braids.  It re-forms again just before flowing into a long sinkhole known as Half Mile Rise, part of the Aucilla River chain of sinks.  The Wacissa Slave Canal was constructed in the 1850s using slave labor in an attempt to connect the Wacissa to the lower Aucilla River so cotton barges could be floated to the Gulf.  It largely followed a small natural stream.  The canal scheme didn’t work well as the canal was too shallow, and after the Civil War it was abandoned for more efficient railroads.  The hard edges are gone, and somehow the decades of rain, wind and water did not fill in the canal.  Except for some boulders along the banks you’d never suspect it was not a completely natural waterway.rnThe limpkin, now absent from many of Florida's rivers because of poor water quality and habitat loss, is still found on the Wacissa.  Apple snails are this wading bird's main food source and clusters of the snail's pink, pearly eggs cling to aquatic plants and tree trunks along the water's edge.  In the spring, zephyr lilies and wild irises brighten the landscape.  In late summer, scores of swallow-tailed kites gather in the cypress along the river before their migration to South America for the winter.  Dozens of wading birds hunt small fishes and frogs at the water's edge.  Eagles, wood ducks, coots and mergansers are commonly spotted in the cool months.  Alligators are plentiful all year.rnThe following map and trail guide are provided courtesy of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Greenways and Trails.rnClick here for trail guide and map. rnOUTFITTERS AND SHUTTLE SERVICErnWacissa Canoe and Kayak RentalsrnDISCLAIMER:  The Original Florida Tourism Task Force (dba Visit Natural North Florida) and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council do not warrant the accuracy or timeliness of this map and paddle guide or the safety of this trail for use by paddlers.   Paddler should use this trail only if they have the adequate skill level and equipment, and paddlers must make that determination.   Paddlers should also check weather forecasts and water levels in advance to avoid unnecessary danger.   The Original Florida Tourism Task Force, the local governments in which these bicycle routes are located and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council are not responsible for any damages whatsoever from its use.

Lower Ochlockonee River

rnMost of this scenic river winds through the rugged wilderness of the Apalachicola National Forest and other public conservation lands, past high pine bluffs and dense hardwoods.  Near Ochlockonee River State Park, the end of the trail, the river widens and motorboats are more common as the river nears Ochlockonee Bay and eventually the Gulf of Mexico.  Releases from the Jackson Bluff Dam vary water levels, and downed trees and log jams may be present during low water and after storm events.  Campsites, campgrounds and fish camps are numerous.rnThis long paddling trail is not suitable for beginners due to areas of navigational difficulty.  Low water may require portaging while high water can make conditions dangerous.  The river above Hitchcock Lake is more unpredictable, with numerous twists and turns.  The full trip from SR 20 to Ochlockonee River State Park is about 62 miles, but paddling to some campgrounds off the river will add distance.  It is important to note that there is a 12-mile stretch between Bradwell and the Arnold Ramp with no access points, so plan accordingly.  Recommended minimum flow level for the Smith Creek gauge is 6.2 feet and 3.0 feet at the Bloxham gauge.  Most of the access points are in very remote locations and leaving a vehicle overnight may be risky, consider contacting an outfitter for shuttling or arrange for safe parking.rnrnThe following map and trail guide are provided courtesy of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Greenways and Trails.rn Click here for trail map and guide.rnOUTFITTERS AND SHUTTLE SERVICErnWilderness Way rnDISCLAIMER:  The Original Florida Tourism Task Force (dba Visit Natural North Florida) and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council do not warrant the accuracy or timeliness of this map and paddle guide or the safety of this trail for use by paddlers.   Paddler should use this trail only if they have the adequate skill level and equipment, and paddlers must make that determination.   Paddlers should also check weather forecasts and water levels in advance to avoid unnecessary danger.   The Original Florida Tourism Task Force, the local governments in which these bicycle routes are located and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council are not responsible for any damages whatsoever from its use.

Big Bend Saltwater Paddling Trail

Sea kayakers have long known of the multi-day expedition possibilities along Florida’s Big Bend Gulf Coast. This remote area boasts one of the longest and wildest publicly-owned coastal wetlands in the United States, and a striking array of bird and marine life.  Flocks of white pelicans zoom past in winter and great egrets dot marshy expanses, white as snowflakes. Bald eagles and ospreys entertain with their aerial maneuvers, and in the often clear waters one can spot fish, sea turtles and small rays in lush meadows of sea grass.rnThe Big Bend Saltwater Paddling Trail spans much of the Big Bend from the Aucilla River to Yankeetown. The northern 105-mile segment from the Aucilla to the Suwannee River is managed by Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.rnA 40-page guide to the northern segment includes detailed maps and descriptions of the rich natural and cultural history of this region. Designated primitive campsites exclusively for trail users are spaced 10 to 14 miles apart and require permits. An overview map of the trail can be downloaded here.rnTo continue your journey through the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge and on to Yankeetown visit this website:rnhttp://www.fws.gov/refuge/Lower_Suwannee/ rnTo experience and learn more about additional paddling opportunities in the region, be sure to attend the next Hidden Coast Paddling Adventure. rnDisclaimer: The Original Florida Tourism Task Force (dba VisitNatural Nroth Florida) and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council do not warrant the accuracy or timeliness of this map and paddle guide or the safety of this trail for use by paddlers.  Paddlers should use this trail only if they have the adequate skill level and dquipment, and paddlers must make that determination.  Paddlers should also check weather forecases and wter levels in advance to avoid any unnecessary danger.  The Original Florida Tourism Task Force, the local governments in which these paddling trails are located and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council are not responsible for any damages whatsoever from its use.

Fishbone Creek

rnFishbone Creek is a tidal creek through salt marsh to hammock on the Gulf of Mexico.rnLength:  It is 3 miles from ramp and observation deck, through salt marsh and open water to a grassy shore of a hammock island on the Gulf of Mexico.  The paddle can be extended an additional 2.3 miles along the Marsh loop segment.  If tides are high, take alternative bay route (yellow dash route).  Time:  1.5 hours to paddle out and back (no marsh loop) plus time spent exploring or picnicking.  Skill Level: Safe for all levels if wind is less than 5 miles per hour. If stronger winds occur, beginner paddlers should be accompanied by experienced paddler. Basic use of GPS and/or compass is required.  rnCAUTIONS: Watch out for oyster beds and sand bars at low tide. If low water requires portage, exit kayak carefully – the oysters can easily cut through unprotected hands/feet, or even shoes.  Marsh Loop: Examination of aerial photos confirms that a northern loop through the salt marsh exists.  However, paddling this loop is not recommended to any paddlers without advanced navigational skills and a strong spirit of adventure. Attempts at low or mid-tides will require extensive portage. Only attempt to navigate through the marsh loop at high tide – 3´ or higher!rnThe following map and trail guide are provided courtesy of Friends of the Lower Suwannee and Cedar Key National Wildlife Refuges.rnClick here for trail map and guide. rnDISCLAIMER:  The Original Florida Tourism Task Force (dba Visit Natural North Florida) and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council do not warrant the accuracy or timeliness of this map and paddle guide or the safety of this trail for use by paddlers.   Paddlers should use this trail only if they have the adequate skill level and equipment, and paddlers must make that determination.   Paddlers should also check weather forecasts and water levels in advance to avoid unnecessary danger.   The Original Florida Tourism Task Force, the local governments in which this paddling trail is located and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council are not responsible for any damages whatsoever from its use.

Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail - Segment 5

From traditional fishing communities to wild stretches of shoreline, tidal creeks and rivers, this segment is one where paddlers can steep themselves in “Old Florida.” This is also the only segment where paddlers can follow two scenic rivers for a significant distance: the Crooked and Ochlockonee rivers. The Crooked River is the only area along the trail where paddlers have a good chance of spotting a Florida black bear. Several hundred black bears roam the Tate’s Hell/Apalachicola National Forest area, one of six major black bear havens in the state. Florida black bears are protected under Florida law. Keep food and garbage tightly packed and hanging in a bag from a tree branch at least ten feet off the ground.rnThe following map and trail guide are provided courtesy of the Florida Department of Environmental Protection, Office of Greenways and TrailrnClick here for trail maps and guide.rnOUTFITTERS AND SHUTTLE SERVICErnSuwannee Guides and Outfitters http://www.suwanneeguides.comrnSt. Marks Outfitters http://www.stmarksoutfitters.comrnThe Wilderness Way http://www.thewildernessway.netrnDISCLAIMER:  The Original Florida Tourism Task Force (dba Visit Natural North Florida) and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council do not warrant the accuracy or timeliness of this map and paddle guide or the safety of this trail for use by paddlers.  Paddler should use this trail only if they have the adequate skill level and equipment, and paddlers must make that determination.  Paddlers should also check weather forecasts and water levels in advance to avoid unnecessary danger.  The Original Florida Tourism Task Force, the local governments in which these bicycle routes are located and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council are not responsible for any damages whatsoever from its use.rnNOTE:  The video below references the Big Bend Saltwater Paddling Trail.  The video is equally applicable to Segment 5 of the Florida Circmumnavigational Paddling Trail as the Big Bend Trail covers virtually the same area.

Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail - Segment 6

rnWith the exception of the Ten Thousand Islands/Everglades segment, this is the remotest segment of the Florida Circumnavigational Saltwater Paddling Trail, featuring long stretches of unspoiled shoreline, marsh expanses, and sea islands.  The Big Bend also has the most stable population of bay scallops in the state and the most intact seagrass beds.  These seagrass beds serve as vitally important nurseries for fish, shrimp, crabs and a host of other marine species, one reason the Big Bend Seagrasses Aquatic Preserve  covers much of this segment. Spanning more than 945,000 acres, the aquatic preserve is the largest and possibly the most pristine in the state.rnFortunately, much of the Big Bend coastline is in public ownership.  The first 105-mile stretch of the trail, including six primitive campsites, is managed by the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission as part of the Big Bend Saltwater Paddling Trail.  Free permits must be obtained before using any of the campsites and an online calendar makes checking availability and reservations simple.  Campsites are marked by white poles and signs and limited to 8 persons and 4 backpacking size tents to better protect the fragile coastal environment, a general rule to follow along the entire segment.  The six campsites are closed during the busy July and August scallop season.  These are not the best months for overnight camping anyway with almost daily storms, biting insects and intense heat.  The trail guide is recommended for paddlers in this section as it provides more detailed information and waterproof maps. To purchase the trail guide, click here.rnNear the Suwannee River, you’ll pass through lands managed by the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge.  The refuge covers numerous islands and more than twenty miles of the famed river of song. A number of excellent paddling trails maps are available.rnNear Cedar Key, the Cedar Keys National Wildlife Refuge  encompasses 13 historic and wildlife-rich islands ranging in size from 1 to 120 acres, totaling 762 acres, It is unlawful to camp on either the Lower Suwannee or Cedar Keys national wildlife refuges.  Two state parks are part of this segment—Econfina River State Park and  Waccasassa Bay Preserve State Park. Econfina River encompasses more than 3,000 acres of pine flatwoods, oak/palm hammocks, and broad expanses of marsh and tree islands.  The 34,000-acre Waccasassa Bay Preserve State Park offers sweeping marsh vistas and tree islands between Cedar Key and Yankeetown.rnThis is a remote area where cell phone coverage can be non-existent. Being properly equipped and prepared and leaving a float plan is very important.  Also, you may travel two to four days at a time without being able to replenish fresh water supplies, and opportunities for replenishing food supplies are also scarce, so plan accordingly.  The coast here can be very shallow and low tides can present a problem for navigation and when seeking to land or launch at campsites.  Keep a tide chart to help plan your trip and count on tides making access a challenge.  You may have to paddle a mile or two off the coast during extreme low tides.rnClick here for maps and trail guide.rn OUTFITTERS AND SHUTTLE SERVICErnSuwannee Guides and OutfittersrnSt. Marks Outfittersrn DISCLAIMER:  The Original Florida Tourism Task Force (dba Visit Natural North Florida) and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council do not warrant the accuracy or timeliness of this map and paddle guide or the safety of this trail for use by paddlers.  Paddler should use this trail only if they have the adequate skill level and equipment, and paddlers must make that determination.  Paddlers should also check weather forecasts and water levels in advance to avoid unnecessary danger.  The Original Florida Tourism Task Force, the local governments in which these bicycle routes are located and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council are not responsible for any damages whatsoever from its use.rnNOTE:  The video below references the Big Bend Saltwater Paddling Trail.  The video is equally applicable to Segment 6 of the Florida Circmumnavigational Paddling Trail as the Big Bend Trail covers virtually the same area.

Beef o' Brady's

In 1985, Jim Mellody dreamed up the idea of a family friendly restaurant, a neighborhood pub where friends and families could gather to enjoy good food and sports in a fun, comfortable atmosphere. Their first sports bar and grill opened in Brandon, Florida. Inspired by a love of sports, Jim filled his restaurant with TVs and satellite dishes so patrons could enjoy watching a vast array of sporting events.rnAs a final touch, he made sure a traditional Irish Blessing graced every menu, bidding good fortune and happy times to all who visited. As the Beef's® story grew, so too did the menu. It was important to Jim that guests have variety (like the award-winning wings available in 12 signature sauces) as well as signature favorites with an Irish twist. Today, Beef 'O' Brady's® is one of the fastest growing kid friendly restaurants in the country. Some call it the "Luck of the Irish." Jim would call it a darn good dream that took a lot of hard work.

The Swamp

Originally constructed in 1914 as a University of Florida professor's house, the building was nearly destroyed by a catastrophic fire in 1993. After a massive renovation we flung open the doors on December 30th, 1994 to a clamoring Gator Bowl crowd, and The Swamp Restaurant was born. Since that momentous day The Swamp Restaurant has grown to become a national landmark and a staple of the Gainesville community. Looking back over these 20 years, we are so proud to have been at the center of some amazing history. From hosting hundreds of thousands of UF's best and brightest, to countless beautiful afternoons on our Front Lawn, to thinking back on those unforgettable National Championships that still give us a thrill, all we can do is thank you for the incredible memories made and the chance to share many more together.

Cedar Key Pizza

This pizza is a strange hybrid of New York and Chicago style pizza, and not strange in a bad way either.  The crust is not quite as thin as hand-tossed NY piea, but not exactly thick enough to be called Chicago deep dish.  The sauce is thick and on the sweet side, much like Chi-Town pizzas I've sampled in the past.  In the northeast, they tend to be more watery and less sweet.  Then there is the cheese, which is definitely reminiscent of that which is used is New York style pizzerias.  Low fat, probably part skim with a high melting point.  It all sounds wacky, but it works very well. Fresh dough made daily!

Gathering Table Steakhouses

The Gathering Table is a Southern, country-style, restaurant that's fairly new--about three years old I think--in Chiefland. It went into a strip mall in what was once a Beall's store's space, so the space used is beyond ample and includes a couple private dining rooms as well as the main room. The staff are beyond nice and the food is great, plus the environment is welcoming enough and if you go on Sundays, they'll have contemporary Christian songs on the radio. It has the feel of the local down-home buffet.

Cross City Mainline Loop

This is an 85-mile loop starting in Cross City, FL on the grade-separated Nature Coast State Trail. The route travels to the Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge, the town of Suwannee and then proceeds to Horseshoe Beach and returns to Cross City. That portion of the route between the unincorporated community of Suwannee and Horseshoe Beach is unpaved and constitutes the "Mainline" portion of the route. Some roads are subject to closure during wet conditions. Gated roads are closed to vehicles but open to bicycles. Mosquito repellent is recommended, and the route has spotty cellphone coverage. Riders may wish to avoid the dirt road segment during hunting season (generally November through January). Also, Dixie County Roads 351 and 357 do not have bicycle lanes or paved shoulders.rnRiders may backtrack from Suwannee to the Nature Coast State Trail via Dixie County Road 349 in order to stay on a paved shoulder. There are several points along Dixie County Road 349 where riders can take off-road loops or down-and-backs. These dirt roads and trails may add one or two miles to the trip. Of special interest is the Weeks Landing side trip, which should be fun for cyclists with wider tires and/or "mountain" bikes. The route passes many scenic viewpoints, including Fishbone Creek.rnThe road to Fishbone Creek passes through a beautiful oak hammock before meeting the tidal creek. At the end of the road is a parking area, observation tower and a small boat launch. Swallow-tail kites nest in the area and are often seen between March and August. Also along the route is an unmarked 1/2 mile walking trail at the end of Duck Pond Spur. It extends into a scenic natural pine forest before reaching a wet area.

Florida's Big Bend Coastal Tour

Florida's Big Bend Coastal Tour introduces bicyclists to the small towns and natural features of the longest undeveloped (or mostly undeveloped) coastline in the lower 48 states. It includes the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge, the Lower Suwannee River Wildlife Refuge, Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park, the Suwannee River, several state and local parks as well as the expansive Gulf coastal marsh. The tour passes through several coastal communities including St. Marks, Steinhatchee/Jena, Cedar Key and Yankeetown.rnThe tour starts at the Ochlockonee Bay Bike Trail in Sopchoppy and ends at the terminus of State Road 40 in Yankeetown. Due to the broad coastal marsh and freshwater wetlands of the Big Bend coastline, the tour route relies on U.S. 98 as its backbone. Much of the route is rural and isolated. Cell phone reception is spotty. Limerock/dirt roads are followed in a few segments.rnFor riders wishing to avoid limerock/dirt roads, work-arounds are suggested. Riders are advised to bring mosquito repellent, plenty of water, and appropriate attire for changing weather conditions. The route provides a number of interesting out-and-back segments which provide access to some of the most scenic parts of the Big Bend coastline. Riders who are so inclined may travel the out-and-backs or skip them, thereby reducing the overall mileage of the route.rnThe Big Bend Coastal Route starts at the terminus of the 12.5-mile Ochlockonee Bay Bike Trail in the City of Sopchoppy and follows the bike trail to its terminus a Mashes Sandy County Park at the Gulf of Mexico. From here the route does a U-turn, backtracking to U.S. 98 where it turns right. Following U.S. 98, the first out-and-back is encountered at mile 28.6 at the intersection of U.S. 98 and CR 355 (Spring Creek Highway). The 10-mile out-and-back takes riders to Shell Point Beach via CR 357 (Shell Point Beach Road). From here the route takes a U-turn and takes the rider past U.S. 98 to Edward Ball Wakulla Springs State Park, home of one of the largest and deepest freshwater springs in the world (entry fee). The park also has a nice one-hour guided boat ride of the springs. Food, lodging and restrooms are available at the state park.rnFrom Wakulla Springs State Park, the route proceeds easterly approximately five miles to its intersection with the St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail, a paved grade-separated multi-use path. The route follows the state trail south across U.S. 98 to the trail's terminus in the town of St. Marks where full services are available (http://cityofstmarks.com). From the town of St. Marks the route returns to U.S. 98 where it turns right and proceeds for approximately 2.5 miles to its intersection with Lighthouse Road (mile 66.9). This 20-mile out-and-back takes riders through the St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge to the iconic St. Marks Lighthouse at the Gulf of Mexico. Restrooms and picnic areas are available.rnFrom St. Marks Lighthouse, the route returns to U.S. 98 and proceeds easterly approximately 18 miles to its intersection with Aucilla River Road/CR 14, which provides a 12-mile out-and-back to Econfina River State Park (entry fee). Full facilities are available inside and outside the park. From here the route returns to U.S. 98, turning right and proceeding approximately 19 miles to the City of Perry, where full services are available. Downtown Perry, like many of the small towns in north central Florida, has been experiencing a resurgence and is worth a visit.rnFrom Perry the route proceeds approximately five miles along U.S. 98, then veers right onto Beach Road/CR 361 to Keaton Beach and Dekle Beach. These are very small communities consisting primarily of vacation rentals. The route continues southeasterly along various Taylor County paved roads to the unincorporated communities of Steinhatchee and Jena (full services available). These roads are the closest paved roads paralleling the coast along the entire route. Steinhatchee has one of the few bridges over a Big Bend coastal river. Therefore, the route crosses the bridge to the unincorporated community of Jena. Since Steinhatchee and Jena are adjacent communities separated only by the Steinhatchee River, many consider them as one community.rnProceeding over the bridge, riders must make a decision as to whether to turn right and follow the route along three Dixie County unpaved road segments or turn left and return to U.S. 98. Should riders decide to return to U.S. 98, however, they can still turn right on CR 361, commonly known as the Road to Nowhere, to its terminus just past Cow Creek, make a U-turn and follow CRs 361 and 358 all the way back to U.S. 98. Once returning to U.S. 98, riders can turn right and follow the highway to Cross City and the Nature Coast State Trail. Before deciding to follow the actual route, be aware that some Dixie County coastal roads are subject to closure during wet conditions. Gated roads may be closed to vehicles but are open to bicycles.rnRiders are advised to avoid the limerock/dirt road segments during hunting season (generally November through January)! For those adventurous souls taking the limerock/dirt roads to Suwannee, the first limerock/dirt road segment is known as the Bowlegs Mainline trail. From the intersection of CR 361 and SW 477th Avenue turn right onto SW 477th Avenue and proceed to SW 623rd Street. The route turns veers right and proceeds to a T intersection with SW 586th Avenue. Here the route turns left and proceeds to paved CR 351.rnFrom CR 351, turn right and proceed to the City of Horseshoe Beach where full services are available. Riders wishing to bail out of the remaining two limerock/dirt road segments can continue on CR 351 to Cross City and the Nature Coast State Trail. From Horseshoe Beach, the route makes a U-turn and proceeds north along CR 351 to its intersection with the limerock/dirt Pump Mainline/SW 782nd Avenue at mile 220.2.rnThe section of the route from this point to Suwannee contains two segments of limerock/dirt roads before returning to asphalt. The first limerock/dirt road segment, known as the Pump Mainline, is approximately 10 miles long. At the end of this segment, the route intersects with paved CR 357/Main Street. This paved road can be used as a bailout to return to U.S. 98 and the Nature Coast State Trail. The second limerock/dirt road segment, known as the Dixie Mainline, is approximately 6 miles long and terminates in the unincorporated coastal community of Suwannee.rnFor those proceeding on the route, turn right (east) on the Pump Mainline and continue along the route as it proceeds through the 53,000+-acre Lower Suwannee National Wildlife Refuge (see http://www.friendsofrefuges.org/dixie-mainline.html for an excellent description of this portion of the route). Turn right at its intersection with paved CR 357 at mile 226.5 and proceed to Shired Island (http://visitdixie.com/rv.php) which is located at the terminus of CR 357 on the Gulf of Mexico. From Shired Island riders can backtrack to U.S. 98 via CR 357 to avoid the last segment of limerock/dirt road.rnThose continuing on the route will ride an additional 10 miles of limerock/dirt road to its intersection with paved CR 349 and the unincorporated coastal community of Suwannee where full services are available. From Suwannee, the route proceeds north along CR 349 past U.S. 98 to the unincorporated community of Old Town and the Nature Coast State Trail. Turning right on the trail, the route follows the Nature Coast State Trail over a trestle bridge. At mile 271, riders may continue to the CR 232 intersection to take advantage of Hart Springs and Otter Springs. Alternatively, riders may turn right (south) on the rail and bypass the two springs.rnFrom mile 289.6, bicyclists may deviate from the trail and visit Fort Fanning Historical Park and Fanning Springs State Park. Fanning Springs is the closest of the three springs to the state trail, and Fort Fanning Historical Park provides a way to cross under the busy highway (under the State Road 26 bridge at the Suwannee River). Full services are available in the City of Fanning Springs.rnContinuing south on the Nature Coast State Trail, the route proceeds to State Road 320, where riders turn right following a striped bicycle path on the shoulder of the State Road to Manatee Springs State Park and on to Cedar Key. A seven-mile segment of the route between Manatee Springs State Park and Cedar Key is a limerock/dirt road. Riders wishing to avoid the limerock/dirt road segment may do so by making the trip to Manatee Springs State Park an out-and back to the state trail, continuing south on the state trail to its terminus, then proceeding west on CR 345/SW 4th Avenue, following the County Road as it turns left at NW 70th Avenue, and continuing to its intersection with CR 330. From here, turn right (west) on NW 70th Street/CR 330, and following this road to its intersection with CR 347, which connects to Cedar Key.rnRiders following the route from Manatee Springs State Park to Cedar Key will turn right (south) onto limestone/dirt NW 107th Terrace, which turns into limestone/dirt NW 102nd Place, which in turn changes to limerock/dirt NE 128th Court and then limestone/dirt NW 90th Street until connecting to limestone/dirt Azalea Camp Road. Altogether, these segments comprise approximately seven miles of limestone/dirt road. Azalea Camp Road intersects with paved NW 60th Street/ NW 70th Street/CR 347 making a sharp right turn onto CR 347. The county road takes riders to the historic coastal fishing village of Cedar Key (see http://visitcedarkey.com/town.php and http://www.visitnaturecoast.com).rnFrom Cedar Key, the route proceeds along State Road 24 to its intersection with U.S. 98 in Otter Creek. Turn right at the intersection, proceeding south on U.S. 98 approximately 14 miles to its intersection with CR 336. Continue straight on CR 336 through Goethe State Forest for approximately 10 miles to its intersection with Robinson Road. Turning right onto Robinson Road, the route intersects with State Road 40. Robinson Road is a graded dirt road. Riders wishing to avoid dirt roads can continue to State Road 40. In either case turn right onto State Road 40, following the State Road to the town of Inglis to the intersection of State Road 40 and U.S. 98.rnProceeding straight across U.S. 98, the State Road is known as the Follow That Dream Parkway, named after an Elvis Presley movie which was filmed in the area. Proceeding on Follow That Dream Parkway/State Road 40 past U.S. 98, the route diverges onto Riverside Drive in the coastal community of Yankeetown for approximately two miles until rejoining the state road. The Big Bend Coastal Route ends at the terminus of State Road 40 at the Gulf of Mexico .

Florida's Ichetucknee - O'leno State Trail

This is a 31.5 mile route beginning in Fort White, FL. It travels down the grade-separated asphalt Ichetucknee - O'Leno State Trail, connecting Ichetucknee Springs State Park to O'leno State Park, and is one of the few bicycle trails which connects two state parks. Most of the O'leno to Ichetucknee State Trail trail runs parallel to SW Fellowship Street (CR18). This route starts just north of Fort White, at the library.rnIn Fort White, there are several local restaurants that riders can enjoy. The trail then travels east across U.S. 441 to O'leno State Park & River Rise Preserve State Park. The trail completes a 3.5 mile loop in the scenic state park, then continues back towards Fort White. Riders then travel all the way to beginning of the Ichetucknee River Greenway, traveling on the trail for a short time along Ichetucknee Springs State Park to the river.rnRiders then return along the same trail to Fort White. While at O'Leno State Park (entry fee), check out the sink which drains the Santa Fe River. The entire river drains into a large sink which flows underground for approximately three miles to re-emerge at River Rise State Park. The gap between the river's disappearance at O'leno State Park and re-emergence at River Rise Preserve State Park is known as the Natural Bridge. The Natural Bridge represented one of the few ways early settlers could travel north-south in Florida without having to cross a river (and pay a ferryman). Camping is available at O'Leno State Park. Ichetucknee Springs State Park (entry fee) is a crystal-clear spring-fed river of approximately nine miles in length. It is well-known as a tubing the river.

Suwannee Century

The 121-mile Suwannee Century consists of three separate loop routes: the Peacock Springs Loop; the Stephen Foster Loop; and the Suwannee River Loop, all of which begin and end at the Suwannee County Agricultural Coliseum in Live Oak. Each route features a state park as a rest stop. The loops can be ridden sequentially or as separate rides. All of the loops begin and end at the Suwannee County Fairgrounds in Live Oak, where parking is available. Live Oak is a full-service community with plenty of restaurants, hotels, and grocery stores.rnrnDue to its rural nature, lack of rideable shoulders, relatively high traffic volumes for rural roads and the absence of bicycle route signage, the Suwannee Century is limited to experienced adult bicyclists. Traffic volumes on the loops may be higher than one might expect for rural areas. Generally, traffic volumes are highest near Live Oak and gradually decline the further one pedals away from the city. Additionally, U.S. Highway 90, State Road 51 and State/County Road 136 will likely have the highest traffic volumes. Fortunately, these segments have rideable shoulders.rnrnPlease be sure to pack plenty of water and other supplies, including sunscreen, before heading out on the loops. All are rural in nature with few to no bathrooms, convenience stores or other facilities. Bathrooms are generally limited to the three state parks, which are located at the furthest points from Live Oak. Only the Stephen Foster Loop, which visits the towns of Wellborn and White Springs, has convenience stores and restaurants.rnrnThe Suwannee Century begins with the 37-mile Peacock Springs Loop, which highlights Wes Skiles Peacock Springs State Park (https://www.floridastateparks.org/park/Peacock-Springs) (entry fee). The park features two prominent springs which are excellent places to cool off. Restrooms (port-a-potty) and picnic tables are available at the park. Please be aware that the roads within the park are not suitable for road bikes. The park roads are bumpy dirt roads with numerous potholes. Plan for a 15 - 20 minute walk from the park entrance to reach the springs.rnrnWhen leaving the Coliseum for either the Stephen Foster or the Suwannee River loop, the Ride with GPS app may initially route you on the Peacock Springs Loop, as it is the first of the three loops leaving from the trailhead. In this case, carefully check your map, disregard the initial directions from the app and continue on what you know to be the route for the other two loops. The app will eventually recognize that you are riding either the Stephen Foster Loop or the Suwannee River Loop and will route you accordingly.rnrnThe 46-mile Stephen Foster Loop constitutes the second and the longest loop of the Suwannee Century. Wellborn is located approximately 15 miles east of Live Oak and is known for its annual Blueberry Festival held in early June. Upon reaching Wellborn, riders can continue approximately one mile past Wellborn to U.S. Highway 90, where there is a convenience store. The destination of the loop, Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center State Park (https://www.floridastateparks.org/park/Stephen-Foster) (entry fee) and the town of White Springs, which has convenience stores and restaurants. White Springs is also the home of the Suwannee Bicycle Association (http://www.suwanneebike.org).rnrnThe 37-mile Suwannee River Loop is the last loop of the Suwannee Century. It features the Suwannee River State Park (https://www.floridastateparks.org/park/Suwannee-River) (entry fee), which, as its name suggests, is located on the Suwannee River. The park has camping, water, picnic tables and bathrooms. This loop likely has the most hazardous road segment of the Suwannee Century. Stagecoach Road is frequently used by logging trucks. Riders may wish to consider returning from the State Park to Live Oak via U.S. Highway 90 with its rideable shoulder and painted bicycle lane, thereby avoiding Stagecoach Road.rnrnThe Original Florida Tourism Task Force (dba Visit Natural North Florida) and the North Central Florida Regional Planning Council do not warrant the safety of the routes on this map for use by bicyclists.

Tallahassee - St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail

A paved, grade-separated 41-mile out-and-back trail from Tallahassee, FL to St. Marks, FL. Although the northern terminus of the trail is near Lake Elberta, due to parking difficulties, many riders park and start at the Munson Hill trailhead on Woodville Highway, approximately 4.5 miles south of the northern terminus and just south of the Woodville Highway-Capital Circle SE intersection. Additionally, some riders starting at this trailhead go south, skipping the northern 4.5 mile northern section altogether. The Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail runs 20.5 miles one-way from Florida's capital city to the coastal community of St. Marks. Through the early 1900s, this historic railroad corridor was used to carry cotton from the plantation belt to the coast for shipment to textile mills in England and New England. Officially part of the Florida Greenways and Trails System, this state trail has also been designated as a National Recreational Trail. It was the first rail-trail in the Florida system of greenways and trails to be paved, providing a scenic experience for running, walking, bicycling and skating. Horseback riding is available on an adjacent unpaved trail. Here outdoor enthusiasts can hike a portion of the Florida National Scenic Trail, which joins the rail-trail at U.S. 98 and continues south. At the main trailhead in Tallahassee, there is access to the Munson Hills/Twilight Mountain Bike Trails in the Apalachicola National Forest. At the southern terminus of the trail, the coastal City of St. Marks welcomes trail users to enjoy seafood dining, fishing and entertainment as well as to learn about the history of the area at San Marcos de Apalache Historical State Park. The Tallahassee-St. Marks State Trail is a completed section of the developing, 120-mile Capital City to the Sea Loop corridor and is a destination along the Big Bend Scenic Highway. Visit the trail for fitness/training runs and rides, or a relaxing stroll that will shed daily stresses. Jump on the trail at any of the trailheads spread out along the trail. Mileage markers provide distance information and the trail corridor is lined with trees providing plenty of shade. Restroom facilities are located at intervals along the trail. At the Wakulla Station Trailhead, there are picnic pavilions and the barrier-free Felburn Foundation Boundless Playground, which is designed to give children of all abilities the opportunity to learn and play freely together. A short video about the trail can be found here. For more information on the St. Marks Trail, contact the Florida Division of Parks office at 850.922.600.
