About the Trail

Phone: (352) 540-3830

The Good Neighbor Trail is a beautiful paved trail that starts at Russell Street Park and joins up with the Withlacoochee State Trail.

Following a former narrow gauge railroad corridor, this is a linear paved bike path.

It spans from the former main line at Croom, which is now the Withlacoochee State Trail, to a depot in Brooksville dating back to 1885.

The corridor dates back to the heyday of lumberjacks felling the “yellow pine,” as long-lived longleaf pines were known, and sending them off to sawmills.

Narrow gauge trains facilitated the process, in this case, the Southern Railroad.

It was later taken over by the Atlantic Coast Line and rails widened to accommodate standard gauge trains.

Now, the Good Neighbor Trail provides a crucial connector in the Coast-to-Coast Trail across Central Florida.

Open daylight hours only. Leashed pets are welcome. Please pick up after your pet.
