Season and Hours:
Ocala National Forest - Juniper Springs
01/26/2007 05:30 PM Hank McComas - This launch site is about 7 miles down a graded and packed sand road. Several puddles of significance will make 4 wheel drive adviseable if there has been recent rain. The parking is about 100 meters from the launch site. it is seven miles back up to the springs and about another seven miles out to the St Johns river. The spring fed creek gets broader and deeper the closer one gets to the source. It is my understanding that the river continues to get smaller and shallower and may be impassable as it breaks into channels and merges into the St. Johns river.
