River Rise Preserve State Park

The Santa Fe River goes underground in O’Leno State Park and reappears more than 3 miles away in River Rise Preserve before resuming its journey to the Suwannee River. Research has shown that the water discharging from the Rise includes a large amount of new ground water as well, leading some to classify the Rise as a first-magnitude spring. Cave divers have partially explored the conduit between the Sink and the Rise. This natural land bridge is punctuated with numerous sinkholes and lakes.
