This is Segment 29, Region N. The wild and beautiful Ocklawaha River, with its dark mirror-like water and unspoiled shorelines, is the dominant feature of this segment. Other paddling trails include the clear-running Silver River with its abundant wildlife and exotic rhesus monkeys. In the late 1800s, small steamboats once plied the waters of the Ocklawaha and Silver Rivers, carrying goods and passengers to and from Jacksonville. Now, canoes, kayaks and small powerboats are the dominant watercraft.
