Springs Outing: Branford Spring Hop
November 17 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pm$10.00 – $20.00
On Saturday, November 17th, biologist and cave diver, Tom Morris, will lead a caravan spring hop outing to several springs along the Suwannee River around the Branford/Mayo area. The time is ripe as rainfall during the past year has resulted in the best spring conditions we have seen for many years, and all the springs are flowing strong and clear! The springs we propose to visit include Branford Spring, Little River Spring, Royal Spring, Running Spring, Church Spring, Cow Spring, Peacock Spring, and Orange Grove Springs.
Be sure to fill up your gas tank and bring your hiking essentials along with a bathing suit, snorkeling gear, a warm change of clothes, a chair, water bottle, snacks, and a packed lunch. There are changing rooms and/or portable toilets at several of the sites we will be visiting but not all. Hiking difficulty for this Springs Outing is easy as we will be driving right up to the majority of springs.
Our group will meet at Ivey Memorial Park (Address: 614, SW Ivey Memorial Park Dr, Branford, FL 32008) next to Branford Spring at 9:00 AM sharp. From there, we will explore Branford Spring then caravan to our next spring location. We plan to wrap up this outing between 4-5:00 PM, but participants are free to leave at any time. If you have any questions or concerns please feel free to comment below or email us at email@example.com.
