City of Inverness, Florida

Inverness is a city in Citrus County, Florida. Since the Florida city lies at the foot Tsala Apopka and Henderson lakes, Inverness, with inver meaning mouth of the lake, seems to be an appropriate name. Inverness is best known for being a “Gateway Community” by the Florida Trail Association and has been recognized by the National Arbor Day Foundation and US Forest Service as a Tree City USA. Residents and visitors alike are welcomed to take part in the family-focused event of music, games, and crafts called the Great American Cooterfestival, named after the cooter turtle.

Fort Cooper State Park offers a wide variety of natural sights and wonders. To start, Lake Holathlikaha is a pristine lake that is best viewed by boat or while kayaking across its majesty. Fort Cooper also boasts 700 acres of fertile lands covered in hiking trails to take in the beauty of Florida.

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.
