When it comes to activities, Withlacoochee State Trail has a little bit of everything. You can even bring your pets! If you're looking to indulge in Florida's railroad history, the trail still has the original whistle markers and cement mileage used by trains in the 1900s. You can also view the Inverness Depot, a historic train station built in 1892. In the mood for a more nature-centered visit? Withlacoochee is great for viewing plants and wildlife as it passes through forests, sand hill communities, and wetlands. Many animals call the trail home, including the gopher tortoise. Withlacoochee is also the perfect place to get in some exercise, offering opportunities for biking, running, and rollerblading.
Your adventure doesn't have to end here! Parts of this trail are nearby other forests and state parks for you to visit. These include the Withlacoochee State Forest, Fort Cooper State Park, and the Withlacoochee River Canoe Trail.
