Beautiful Steinhatchee Falls, a Taylor County park, is located up river approximately 10 miles from Steinhatchee River Inn. It is a wonderful place to picnic, walk through the woods, birdwatch or enjoy a refreshing swim. The three-foot waterfall is formed by a limerock outcropping in the river which extends north of the falls and, historically, served as a crossing point for Native Americans and settlers in the 1800’s.
At one time this was a crossing for vehicles before there were bridges, the flat natural bridge extends completely across the river and the water is only a few inches deep on top of the flat rock shelf. Traces of the old road are still there.
