Description Suggest an Edit

This 12-mile paved path joins two outstanding north central Florida state parks, Ichetucknee Springs and O'Leno. The greenway goes through the town of Fort White and includes a little rolling terrain. Between Fort White and Ichetucknee Springs, the path is flat and shaded in the afternoon by adjacent trees. Services are available in Fort White.

Camping is available at O'Leno State Park; swimming, tubing and snorkeling are available at Ichetucknee Springs. Both parks feature fine hiking trails, especially nice in the autumn, winter and spring when the weather is cooler. There is an entrance fee for both parks.
