Wacissa River Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Modern-day paddlers in their plastic boats were long preceded by aboriginal Floridians plying dugout canoes in this waterway fed by a host of huge springs, most of which are accessible only by boat—the so-called land around these springs is more swamp than land.

Most of the waterside terrain is part of the Aucilla Wildlife Management Area, hosting the real Florida where wildlife from bears to otters to wading birds thrives in deep remote forests in a wilderness where land and water are intertwined. From Wacissa Springs, the Wacissa River ?ows wide for the ?rst 5 miles then narrows. About 2 miles above Goose Pasture Recreation Area, the waterway becomes wide again and continues wide for another 0.5 mile. However, the river begins to ?ow off into swamps near Goose Pasture."
