Salt Springs Run

Bubbling up from clefts in the earth, crystal-clear water gushes year round from Salt Springs and flows about 5 miles before emptying into Lake George. Canoes can be rented and launched from Salt Springs Marina, located at the head of the Salt Springs Run. The Slow-moving current allows paddling back upstream to the Marina, rather than entering the often-rough Lake George. Powerboats are also available at the marina and share the run with canoes
