Silver River State Park's River Trail
Silver River State Park is a different entity than Silver Springs Park, although they are adjacent on the edge of the Ocala National Forest.
These photos are from Silver River State Park, which is located just 2 miles from our home. This park offers picnic and playground areas, trails to hike, cabins and RV spaces to rent, a museum and more.
One of the trails is the River Trail which is about 1/2 mile long and leads you from the museum area to the Silver River. The Silver River derives from the springs at Silver Springs Park and is a beautiful, clear river used for boating, kayaking, fishing, etc.
Our photos lead you down the trail to the river.
[The Ocala National Forest, by the way, is about 383,000 acres, with some 600 lakes and ponds, and offers a great variety of recreational experiences. You can obtain more information here.]
