Recreation

The Suwannee Springs tract is a featured recreation site. The historic park features the old spring house that was built in the 1800s around the sulfur springs. Visitors can swim in the springs, picnic, and enjoy the snow white river sand bars.

The Suwannee Springs and Linville tracts have marked equestrian trails that connect with the Spirit of Suwannee Music Park. There are no parking facilities to accommodate horse trailers on these tracts. The Linville and Sugar Creek tracts are primitive sites. The Florida National Scenic Trail traverses the riverfront on the Sugar Creek tract.

Visitors may also enjoy fishing, as well as biking, hiking, and wildlife viewing on administrative roads.
