The Silver River is one of the most beautiful and peaceful rivers you will ever paddle. With two launching points, it’s up to you how much of a work out you will get from your ride. The most popular launching point is from Ray’s Wayside Boat Basin at the western foot of the Ocklawaha bridge on State highway 40. The other option is to launch from the end of our River Trail. This does require you to carry your vessel .6 miles from the parking lot to the River.
