Wekiva River and Rock Springs Run Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Rock Springs Run and the entire Wekiva River are state-designated paddling trails. These surprisingly untamed waterways draw in paddlers from the Orlando area and beyond; thus, they can be crowded during the warm months and on weekends. Protected park lands and preserves keep the banks of the crystal-clear streams astonishingly wild and natural.
Semitropical Florida wetlands are highlighted by palm, cypress, and live oak, draped in resurrection ferns and Spanish moss. It is truly an oasis amid ever-expanding greater Orlando. The lowermost portion of the Wekiva River, below FL 46, is bordered by the Lower Wekiva River Preserve State Park, but to run this segment you must paddle 2 miles on to the St. Johns River, which is very broad and developed."
