Three Sisters Springs, a unit of the Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge (CRNWR), is the gem of the Nature Coast. Visitors to the refuge can enjoy wildlife viewing, hiking trails, bicycling and guided tours lead by US Fish & Wildlife Service (USFWS) volunteers. The boardwalk has viewing platforms to observe the springs and native wildlife. There are also nature trails that offer views of Magnolia Springs, Lake Crystal and the wetlands. Three Sisters Springs is a world-renowned winter sanctuary for the West Indian Manatee. Over 100 different native and migratory bird species use the refuge year-round.
In an effort to preserve the shoreline vegetation, control erosion and maintain water clarity, CRNWR does not allow water access to visitors from this site, nor do they allow land access from the water.
Trolley availability is based on the season:
Trolley departs from the Three Sisters Springs Center every 30 minutes to the boardwalk at Three Sisters Springs. Additional stops are made at Hunter Springs Park, South Citrus Ave., and Heritage Village.
Crystal River National Wildlife Refuge Volunteers lead guided tours at Three Sisters Springs daily during manatee season (November 14th-March 31st). Please contact the CRNWR for information on guided walking tours, 352-563-2088.
