24 minutes by car from Riverside Folkhouse, Ginnie Springs is a world famous spot for cave diving and you can pay local diving instructors to take you diving there. Ginnie boasts several beautiful high magnitude springs. Our favorite way to visit these springs is by boat on the Santa Fe River, but you can also pay to visit for a day by car. Be warned the day fee is a bit pricey.

25 minutes by car, Gilchrist Blue is one of our absolute favorite springs in the state of Florida and a real beauty. Great spot for swimming and for bringing kids because there is a nice shallow sandy beach.

Hiking
20 minutes by car, O'Leno is a really great spot for hiking and a pretty good spot for swimming in the Santa Fe River. We usually visit more for the hiking than anything else. Ideal spot to bring a picnic and spend the day hiking, birding, and looking at Florida nature.

여행 팁

교통편

For the cyclists

There is a nice paved bike trail that runs from the entrance of our neighborhood and connects Ichetucknee State Park with Oleno State Park, you can also ride it from Oleno into High Springs and jump back on a paved trail to ride to Poe Springs. Lots of great cycling in this area that we are happy to tell you about if you message us! We have a couple loaner bikes at the house that guests may use to cruise around the neighborhood, the cruiser is probably the best choice for our dirt roads.

For the paddlers

We LOVE canoeing and kayaking and spend a lot of time on the Ichetucknee, Santa Fe, Suwannee, and other rivers and streams all over the southeast. Bring your own boats or rent a kayak from Rum138.com to paddle the Santa Fe River, or Ichetuckneesprings.com to paddle the Itchetucknee. If you’d like advice on how long it will take to get from point a to point b, where to put in and take out, etc., please ask us! We love to share tips on this topic with visitors.
