Overview
More
At 46 miles in length, the Withlacoochee State Trail is presently one of the the longest paved rail-trails in Florida. With a generally flat terrain and many access points, the trail is an ideal venue 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 as it runs through small towns, ranches and six distinct natural communities between Citrus Springs and Dade City. Officially designated as part of the Florida Greenways and Trail System, this State Trail is also a National Recreation Trail® which offers rich opportunities for viewing plants & wildlife and provides access to many other outstanding recreational opportunities.

Thank You for the kind words. The trail is open from sun up to sun down 365 days a year. The trail does not provide for camping but there are several places along the trail which do. We hope you will visit us again soon.

Amazing trail! We rented bikes rode the section between Inverness to just south of Floral City, about 23 miles round trip. This is a beautiful section of the trail that takes you through farm lands and parks.

Great biking trail lots of entry/exit points along the trail. Occasional bathroom and water fountain stations. Depending on which part of the trail you ride there is plenty of shade. Be careful crossing roadway intersections.
