:: Rail-Trails Florida
A new, full-color guide in the official Rail-Trails series covers 53 outstanding multiuse trails in Florida.
Florida visitors are often surprised by both the beauty of its trails and by the great variety of its landscapes. Although Florida doesn’t have any mountains, it does offer trails with views of everything from beaches and bluffs to prairies and wetlands. In this comprehensive trail guide, you’ll find some of the best, most beautiful trails in Florida.
Many of the trails were converted from unused railroad corridors to become some of the best multiuse rail-trails in the state. In this guidebook, experts from Rail-to-Trails Conservancy present their final list of the top trails and rail-trails in Florida, selected from more than 100 in the state.
James A. Van Fleet State Trail runs 29 miles through some of Florida's most scenic rural landscape. You will find yourself immersed in the beauty of Florida’s wetlands as you pass through central Florida’s expansive Green Swamp, which is home to some of the state’s most impressive wildlife. For a real adventure, try the 106.5-mile Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail (FKOHT), which stretches the entire length of the Florida Keys, from Key Largo to Key West, the southernmost point of the continental United States.
One of Florida's most popular and unique urban pathways, the 42.5-mile Pinellas Trail, stretches from St. Petersburg north to Tarpon Springs and connects several county parks, coastal areas, and communities. Or for visitors who really want to unplug, visit Florida’s Sanibel Island, a beautiful sanctuary with 24 paved miles of shared-use paths that take you to beaches, a wildlife refuge and rehabilitation center, a historical lighthouse and village, a renowned seashell museum, restaurants, shops, and more.
In addition to details about each trail,
