Run with the Manatees! Crystal River Area

Creative Commons: qwesy qwesy

This is a pleasant road run in the Crystal River area, featuring some nice views of Kings Bay and some small parks and preserves. In winter, you might spot a manatee! The route was inspired by Aurélie Vilmer.

Start off Rt. 98 at Three Sisters Springs Trail and do a ~2 mile section along Kings Bay Dr., with nice water views, passing the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge and the Three Sisters Springs manatee viewing area. Return to the main road to then do a nice loop around the waterside Hunter Springs Park (nice beach, natural springs) and Kings Bay Park. Return along the Crosstown Trail, a paved multu-use path that parallels Three Sisters Springs Trail.
