Broken Arrow Bluff

Nestled between the beauty of Kanapaha Botanical Gardens and the sweeping vistas of Lake Kanapaha, Broken Arrow Bluff provides a glimpse into the mystery of Florida. Hidden under the spreading branches of mighty live oaks and upland mixed forest, towering limerock outcrops border a sinkhole which connects the lake’s surface waters to hidden aquifers beneath your feet. The abundant bird life that thrives in the marshy lake and surrounding forests provides a musical backdrop to the scenes of nature mirrored in water.
