Suwannee River Wilderness Trail
The Suwannee River Wilderness Trail is a new project between the Department of Environmental Protection and the Suwannee River Water Management. The trail is 207 miles long and follows the path of the Suwannee River from North Florida to the Gulf of Mexico where the river empties.  The trail is well on the way to being completed and will offer visitors various nature activities such as hiking, canoeing, bicycling, horseback riding, and camping.  There will be at least one activity that will appeal to every outdoor enthusiast.

As part of the trail "hubs" are being constructed one day apart to allow weary travelers a place to rest & relax before beginning their journey the next day.  Cabins are being constructed at various parks as well as river camps along the trail for those who prefer primitive camping.

As part of the trail the Stephen Foster Folk Culture Center Center received 5 new cabins.  These new cabins come  furnished with two bedrooms, kitchenette, living room, fireplace, and a wrap around screened porch.  The cabins will comfortably sleep 6 people and cost $90 plus tax a night.  
No pets allowed.
