The Incomparable Ichetucknee River

This past weekend we paddled the Ichetucknee River in Fort White, Florida. The Ichetucknee is a National Natural Landmark and is one of the most beautiful rivers you will ever see.  At only six miles long, and with an easy flowing current, it’s crystal clear spring fed waters will take you on a trip through the “Real Florida” that will dazzle your senses with it’s overwhelming beauty.

We paddled with a large group of about 16 other kayakers.

If you continue past the South take out, you will come to a bridge and tunnel.

 

 

 

Development begins on the other side where it soon empties into the Sante Fe River.

  1. I have to agree. The Ich is a treasure that I never tire of visiting and experiencing. I have been going down it since I was a little girl, long before it became a state park even. Thank you for sharing these gorgeous photos.
