Rum Island

Distance From Outpost: Approximately 7.0 miles.

Paddling Time: Approximately 3.0 hours.

Description: Part of Rum Island Park, this popular spring can be considered a major hub of the Santa Fe River. Rum Island Park is a public park with picnic tables, benches and great views of the river. Local legend has it that the island across from the spring earned its name from the moonshine and bootlegging operations of the early 1900s.

Note: This is a designated pick up point. There are porta-johns here and a small spring for swimming.
