The Suwanne River
It is the only major waterway in the southeastern United States that is still unspoiled
It also has fifty-five springs along the way. The river’s limestone outcroppings and a drop in elevation create Florida’s only whitewater rapids at Little Shoals and Big Shoals located several miles upstream from the city of White Springs.
Indians on the Suwannee River
Tumucuan Indians were living on the banks of the Suwannee River when the Spanish explorers came to what is now north Florida in the 1530s. The Suwannee River formed the boundary between the Timucuan on the east and the Apalachee Indians on the west.
In the 1700s the Seminole Indians or “wanderers” from the Creek tribe of Georgia were on the Suwannee. Old logs buried deep in the river were perhaps once parts of rafts on which they drifted down from Georgia.
White Sulphur Springs on the Suwannee was considered to be a sacred healing ground. Warring tribes could come to bathe in and drink the mineral waters while putting aside their disagreements.
The Withlacoochee River
The Withlacoochee River (North) is officially designated as part of Florida’s Statewide System of Greenways and Trails. The Withlacoochee River gently curves through Twin Rivers State Forest past hardwood forests, crystal-clear springs
, and sandbars along the bends. Primitive camping is allowed along the way. Limestone outcrops
, pitted by swirling water
, stand like watchtowers on the banks. There are a number of small shoals
, but they do not generally require portaging. The Withlacoochee contributes a significant amount of water to the Suwannee River and joins it at Suwannee River State Park. The trail ends at the boat ramp in the state park, about a half mile upstream on the Suwannee River.
