Nestled against the Georgia border, the easternmost corner of Northwest Florida is Madison County, with its county line defined by the Suwannee River.
Surrounding state parks and state forests along with local parks provide interesting hikes not far from Interstate 10.
One of the top destinations has little hiking, but plenty of beauty for swimmers and divers: Madison Blue Spring.
On the roadwalk route of the Florida Trail between the Suwannee and Aucilla Rivers, hikers pass right through services immediately south of the interstate.
Better hiking, however, is along the nearby Suwannee River, following the Florida Trail through Twin Rivers State Forest, where backpacking campsites and a shelter front the river.
