Among numerous Indian pathways forming a network within the American Southeast at the time of European contact was one which led southward from the Altamaha River of Georgia to the Alachua country of Florida. (Fig. 1) This “Alachua Trail” was well known in the colonial period, a fact pointing to long aboriginal use. Today however the trail is unmarked and generally lost to memory, and only rare and tantalizingly brief references to it appear in the historical record.
