The Suwannee River Wilderness Trail runs 169 miles from White Springs, Florida to the Gulf of Mexico and offers activities such as canoeing, camping, boating, hiking, biking, birding, and horseback riding.

A system of hubs on the river are in place and spaced approximately a one-day paddle apart. Proposed "river camps" are under construction and will be complete in the near future. Packages are now available for a variety of venues along the river, from a half-day paddle to multiple day trips. Rustic cabins, primitive or developed camping areas, and private sector lodging are available at "hubs."
