A river in Florida, north of Gainesville, which starts at the Ichetucknee Springs, which discharge about 233 million gallons of water a day. The river runs for about six miles and then joins the Santa Fe River. Much of the river is in Ichetucknee Springs State Park, which has hiking trails, boardwalks, and a nice setup for people who want to ride an inner tube with the current down a portion of the river. This last seems to be the most popular use of the park, so much so that limits on the number of tubers per day from some launches have been established to avoid completely destroying the river's ecosystem. Despite the crowds, tubing is a lot of fun.
