Set 1 of 10
Into the Woods Apr 1, 2020 - Juniper Springs was a perfect place for us to go for a sunny afternoon together. With a relatively short drive to the Silver Springs area, about an hour and a half north of Orlando, we packed a lunch and hit the road.
Juniper Springs and others Feb 8, 2019 - I woke up early enough to catch the sun coming up through the mist rising off of Salt Springs. I shared the view with this Blue Heron who stood on one leg watching me over his shoulder.

Kayaking Juniper Creek Apr 18, 2018 - Usually on Juniper Creek, with it's swift current, many twists and turns and obstacles, and hordes of people, I only have time for a grab shot every now and then. My wish for this trip was to take our time so I could get a few more pictures than normal.
Camping at Juniper Springs Feb 24, 2018 - Right on the edge of Ocala National Forest lies Juniper Springs; a beautiful recreational area that was helped shaped by the Civilian Conservation Corps. Filled with swimming, canoeing, and kayaking the springs is also home to the Historic Millhouse.
Set 4 of 10
Juniper Spring, Marion County, May 2017 Aug 9, 2017 - I gravitate toward small, sandy spring runs with overarching tree canopy, so Juniper Spring has always been a favorite. Like many, or perhaps most, of the big springs in Florida, the Juniper headspring was modified long ago for swimming.
Juniper Springs Recreation Area in Ocala National Forest Apr 7, 2017 - This time to the Ocala National Forest, to get passes for Pete and Donna. Unfortunately Donna forgot to bring her ID, so she will have to come back again. Fortunately, we loved the place, so she is anxious to come back.
Set 5 of 10
Juniper Run, Florida Jul 14, 2016 - We flew down to Florida early December on a jaunt to use a Jan. 1 deadline timeshare. We ended up in Palm Coast, which lies between Jacksonville and Daytona Beach and just south of St. Augustine, on the Atlantic side.
Another Lovely Southern Wilderness: Ocala National Forest Jun 4, 2016 - Between the city of Ocala - known for its farms producing some of the world's finest horses - and the eastern coast of Florida lies a vast forested region containing a variety of wildlands and natural delights.

Weekend exploring the Central Florida Springs Apr 1, 2016 - As summer approaches and summer vacation inches into a reality, I thought it only appropriate to share some of my favorite weekend getaways that could help this upcoming summer go down in history as the best one yet!
Juniper Springs, Ocala National Forest, Florida Mar 2, 2016 - We rented a tandem kayak to go down 7+ miles of the spring fed stream which started from our camping area. The stream starts out so shallow that I was out of the kayak a number of times pulling it over sandbars until tributaries added more water and depth to the stream.
Set 7 of 10
A Guide to Native American Heritage at Alexander Springs Jan 26, 2016 - Alexander Springs has always been tops on my list of things to do in the Ocala National Forest. It's one among many of Florida's crystalline springs, where locals and visitors gather to enjoy its many offerings of eco-adventure.

Have Steph Will Travel: Blue Spring Road Trip Part 2 Dec 23, 2015 - It's a wonderful thing to have a spring this beautiful all to yourself, so I decided that even though it was still a wee bit chilly outside, I should take advantage of the opportunity to explore the waters solo before a bunch of people showed up.
Canoeing Florida's Juniper Run Aug 28, 2015 - Juniper Springs Recreation Area is located in Florida's Ocala National Forest, 22 miles east of Silver Springs on State Road 40. The Ocala is the only subtropical national forest in our country. Local lore tells of someone trying to use dynamite to kill and collect fish in the spring.
Set 9 of 10
You are the Roots: Juniper Springs Aug 1, 2015 - My parents have a lake home about forty five minutes from this spring, Juniper Springs, so it all seemed to work out perfectly, give or take a few hiccups (see also: our diabetic cat had no choice but to join us on this trip and Ethan wound up coming down with a yucky cold).
Florida Adventures: Kayaking in Juniper Springs State Park Jul 11, 2015 - Kayaking has always been high on my list of adventure activities to uphold. It can be both exhilarating, yet relaxing at the same time. Ultimately, it depends on the location you plan to put the boat in the water!
Set 10 of 10
Fern Hammock, Salt, Juniper and Alexander Springs Apr 19, 2014 - Our second day started bright and early with a walk around the campground, down the trail to Fern Hammock Springs where we saw a small alligator, and a quick dip in Juniper Springs, followed by breakfast burritos.
Juniper Run Bike, Hike & Paddle Mar 12, 2011 - My friend Bruce connected with John Davis of Trekeast, which is a 4500-mile journey via ped, pedal and paddle in support of a connected mosaic of wild habitat from the Florida Everglades to the Gaspe Peninsula in Canada.
