Florida Beach Trails
Florida Beach Trails is a unique website for unique travelers and nature enthusiasts seeking fabulous vacations.  We look for incredible destinations, accommodations and experiences for the avid "beach trailer" to enjoy. Our initial focus begins on the glorious Gulf Coast, where we have personally selected places for you to sleep, eat and play.  The theory on our special choices is not based upon 'star' ratings, rather personality, location and service, and our own "Beach Trails Criteria".

Florida Maritime Heritage Trail
The Florida Maritime Heritage Trail is not so much a formal path, as it is a collection of interesting and fun locations that are open to the public. The Trail is made up of six themes, Coastal Communities, Coastal Environments, Coastal Forts, Lighthouses, Historic Ports, and Historic Shipwrecks. Each theme includes a number of places to visit or learn about, and each place features pictures, a historical narrative, a map, and information about how to visit. The themes explain how natural and cultural elements developed historically and how they fit together in a region.

Florida National Scenic Trails
Designated as a Florida National Scenic Trail in 1983 by Congress, the Florida Trail, when completely certified, will meander from Gulf Island National Seashore near Pensacola to Big Cypress National Preserve near Miami and Naples.  The Florida Trail is developed through the efforts of the Florida Trail Association (FTA).  Portions of the trail are officially designated as components of Florida's Statewide System of Greenways and Trails, and the entire trail is considered a major statewide connector.

Florida Native American Heritage Trail
Florida's native heritage is ancient and expansive. The earliest evidence suggests that first Floridians lived here 12,000 years ago. Today, more than 100 destinations celebrate the rich history and modern culture of Florida's native people.

Blackwater Heritage  State Trail
Blackwater Heritage State Trail, the westernmost state rail-trail, winds through the historic town of Milton and extends eight miles north to join the U.S. Navy's 1.5-mile Military Heritage Trail, which ends at the Naval Air Station Whiting Field. The more than nine miles of paved trail offer an enjoyable trip through a quaint North Florida town and out into the countryside where wooden bridges cross several creeks and native wildflowers dot the landscape. Designated as a National Recreation Trail® and part of Florida's State Greenways and Trails System, this paved trail is the perfect venue for biking, running, walking and skating, along with picnicking and birdwatching activities. An unpaved equestrian trail parallels the paved trail. Equestrians may use the paved trail or unpaved shoulder at their discretion; bridges are shared by all trail users. Equestrian use is prohibited on the Military Heritage Trail.

Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway

Crossing Central Florida from the Gulf of Mexico to the St. Johns River is the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway which occupies much of the land formerly known as the Cross Florida Ship and later Barge Canal projects. A series of historic events transformed this corridor from one of the nation's largest uncompleted public works project to a world class greenway.

Today, this 110-mile corridor encompasses diverse natural habitats for observing Florida's native flora and fauna and offers a wide variety of trails and recreation areas. With hiking, biking, equestrian and paddling trails, boat ramps, fishing spots, campgrounds, a barrier-free Boundless Playground® and picnic shelters, the Cross Florida Greenway offers recreational opportunities for all interests and ages.

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail
Designated as a segment of the Florida National Scenic Trail, this trail circles the second largest freshwater lake in the contiguous United States. The trail itself is located atop the Herbert Hoover Dike, which surrounds the lake for flood protection, and provides views ranging from scenic lakeside to working agricultural landscapes. It also takes users near and through communities that are at the heart of agriculture in this part of the state, such as Clewiston and Belle Glade. The area affords opportunities for viewing wildlife, particularly in fall and winter, when birds such as herons, egrets, and a variety of wintering waterfowl are abundant. And of course, fishing opportunities are endless.

Florida Nature Coast State Trail
The Nature Coast State Trail provides an excellent opportunity to experience the Sunshine State's Natural North Florida. In the early 1900s, trains were replacing the steamship as the freight and passenger carrier throughout the Suwannee River Valley. Today, visitors can retrace this historic route of the Atlantic Coastline Railroad, traversing 32 miles of Florida's beautiful Nature Coast region. Officially part of Florida's Greenways and Trails System, this state trail has also been designated as a National Recreation Trail®. It consists of two primary alignments built along abandoned rail lines that intersect at Wilcox Junction, connecting the communities of Cross City, Trenton, Fanning Springs and Chiefland.

Rails to Trails Conservancy (Florida map)

Rails-to-Trails Conservancy serves as the national voice for more than 150,000 members and supporters, 20,000-plus miles of rail-trail throughout the country, and more than 9,000 miles of potential rail-trails waiting to be built. 

We have supported the tremendous growth and development of rail-trails since opening our doors February 1, 1986. Then, there were fewer than 200 known rail-trails. Today, there are more than 1,600 preserved pathways that form the backbone of a growing trail system that spans communities, regions, states and, indeed, the entire country.
