Changes in Direction

From its headwaters, the river flows North-Northwest, until Lake George, where it takes on a more direct Northerly flow until the “S” bend at Palatka (sharp East turn, Northwest, Sharp East) and then becomes more Northeast through Hastings. The river flows Northwest again until Orange Park, where its flow becomes more Northerly yet again, into Jacksonville. At Downtown Jacksonville, the St Johns makes sharp East then sharp North turns, before making it’s final turn East, in northern Duval County, until it reaches the Atlantic Ocean at Mayport.
