Located at the confluence of the Suwannee and Withlacoochee Rivers, the 14,000-acre Twin Rivers State Forest has two tracts in Madison County: the Ellaville Tract off US 90 and the Sullivan Tract off CR 150. The Ellaville Tract features sandhills home to Wild Turkeys, Cooper’s Hawks and numerous species of resident and migratory songbirds. More than 5 miles of trails wind through hardwood and pine forest; the long stretch along the Suwannee River offers spectacular scenery. Explore the Sullivan Tract by paddling a canoe or kayak on the Withlacoochee River; keep your eyes peeled for wading birds and Belted Kingfishers. The Twin Rivers State Forest is site # 2 in the West section of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail. Free guidebooks with maps are available from The Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail is a project of the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission in partnership with the Florida Department of Transportation, the Wildlife Foundation of Florida, and dozens of federal, state, and local agencies and private landowners.
