Day use area in Ocala Forest, swimming,paddling and hiking

My Report:

Took a day hike, started out further south on a different trail but after hearing several rounds of gunshots from hunters turned around and looked for a "safer" hike in one of the recreation areas.

2 hours total time, there is a 2 mile round trip hike from the springs to Lake George, perhaps further if you wanted as the trail meandered around the edge of the lake a bit. There is a short walk around the springs and up to the sand pots on a wooden board walk that lets you see the springs bubbling up. Canoe/Kayak launch area available, swimming and lots of picnic tables and port a potties. $4.00 parking fee, like most of the Ocala.
