About the Trail

Phone: 850-245-2118

At 46 miles in length, the Withlacoochee State Trail is one of Florida’s longest paved rail trails.

Officially designated as part of the Florida Greenways and Trail System, this state trail is also designated as a National Recreation Trail. It offers rich opportunities for viewing plants and wildlife and provides access to many outstanding recreational opportunities. Among the recreational highlights nearby are the unpaved trails in the Croom area of the Withlacoochee State Forest, the Withlacoochee River (South) Canoe Trail, and Fort Cooper State Park.

With a generally flat terrain and many access points, the trail is ideal for all skill and fitness levels of cycling, running, walking, and skating. An unpaved equestrian trail parallels portions of the paved trail.

The trail corridor traverses three counties (Citrus, Hernando, and Pasco), offering an enjoyable, varied journey. It runs through small towns, ranches, and six distinct natural communities between Citrus Springs and Dade City.
