The Withlacoochee State Trail

consists of a 46-mile stretch and is presently

the longest paved rail trail in Florida. The trail

corridor runs through small towns, ranches and

natural areas as it makes its way south from Citrus

Springs to Trilby. The trail traverses a region

that offers many other outstanding recreational

opportunities such as unpaved trails in the Croom

area of the Withlacoochee State Forest, and the

Withlacoochee River (South) Canoe Trail. Like

most rail-trails in Florida, the Withlacoochee Trail

State Park is generally flat, offering an easy ride for

all skill levels. An unpaved equestrian trail follows

along portions of the paved trail. For additional

information contact the Withlacoochee Trail State

Park at
