Once called Acuera, or “Healing Waters,” by Timucuan Indians who inhabited the area, De Leon Springs is a place to cool off in clear waters, roam trails through a lush subtropical forest that features a massive old-growth bald cypress tree, and immerse oneself in a rich history. The spring run was once used to turn a sugar cane mill followed by a grist mill to turn corn into flour during the Civil War. The famous naturalist John James Audubon visited the springs in 1831. “This spring presents a circular basin, having a diameter of about sixty feet, from the centre of which the water is thrown up with great force, although it does not rise to a height of more than a few inches above the general level,” he wrote in his journal. Swimming in this wide and deep spring is a real pleasure. At first sight of the clear, blue spring water, it’s easy to see why people have been coming here for millennia. You can sometimes spot eagles, manatees, and alligators. After a morning hike, have breakfast or lunch in the Old Spanish Sugar Mill Restaurant – it is equipped with built-in griddles so you can make your own pancakes! Or, bring a picnic and admire the beautiful scenery.

Trails and boardwalks wind through 1,600 acres of wetland habitats near the St. Johns River. This Sanford-area public land is a prime spot for viewing white-tailed deer, swallow-tailed kite, and the Florida black bear. A 71-mile loop trail follows the St. Johns River, and it's not an easy hike. Slippery and uneven terrain might force hikers to go slow or bring a hiking stick. It's also not advisable to hike when the St. Johns River is in flood stage. An easier loop comes by following the two-mile BlackBear Wilderness Walk. This primitive site doesn't include restrooms, but leashed pets are allowed.
