Withlacoochee State Trail

Man and woman biking through Withlacoochee State Trail

Welcome to Withlacoochee State Trail! This 46 mile long trail is a diverse journey through Florida's west coast. It also stands as the longest paved rail-trail in the state. Originally part of the Plant System's West Coast Route rail line in the late 1800s, Withlacoochee became a state trail in 1989. In fact, it was one of the first land purchases under Florida's "Florida Rails to Trails" program. This expansive stretch of land runs through three counties, various small towns, and a variety of wildlife habitats. There are also sections of the trail that have an accompanying unpaved equestrian trail for horseback riding.
