Similar to Holton Creek Rise, the Alapaha River Rise is not an artesian spring that draws from the Floridan Aquifer, but instead is a resurgence of the Alapaha River. There is a direct connection between the Alapaha’s Dead River Sink and Alapaha River Rise – dye poured into the sink reappeared at Alapaha River Rise eight days later, 12 miles away.

It is located in Hamilton County.
