Also see . . . Ichetucknee Springs State Park. Ichetucknee Springs State Park is a National Natural Landmark located 4 miles northwest of Fort White off State Road 47 and State Road 238. It centers around the 6-mile-long Ichetucknee River, which flows through shaded hammocks and wetlands into the Santa Fe River. A 17th century Spanish mission site has been identified in the park, next to a short tributary connecting Fig Springs to the Ichetucknee River, about one mile downstream from the head of the river. The mission has been provisionally identified as San Martín de Timucua, which was occupied in the first half of the 17th century.
