Its headwaters in San Pedro Bay the Econfina River’s character changes dramatically as it winds 44-miles through upland forests and meanders downstream to the palm-fringed salt marshes of the Gulf of Mexico.
The name “Econfina” derives from the Creek ekana, which means “earthy”, and feno, which means “bridge” or “foot log”. This name may refer to a natural bridge over the river in the Natural Well Branch Tract.
