Shorter run for tubers almost ready to spring forth

Tubing run will shorten trip on river to about an hour
Published Feb. 19, 2007

For more than 50 years, people have enjoyed heading to K.P. Hole, a Marion County park south of Rainbow Springs State Park, renting inner tubes and floating down the Rainbow River about 3 miles for a trip that typically takes about four hours.

Perhaps as early as April 15, a new $3.9 million state-run tubing location is poised to open and offer up to 1,000 daily seasonal tubers the choice of taking a shorter run on the east side of the river.
