It is about 1/4 mile from main spring to the opening of the Sante Fe. You can kayak/tube back and forth. We took a Kayak to the Sante Fe and then Kayak'd up the river a bit. You can also rent or bring your own. One day we used paddleboards and that was a great way to be able to see the fish swimming around.
