The Official Rails-to-Trails Conservancy Guidebook for Florida
Looking for a level trail where you can enjoy a brisk fitness walk, bike ride, or stroll with the family? All across the country, unused railroad corridors have been converted to public, multiuse trails. Here the experts from Rails-to-Trails Conservancy present the best of these rail-trails in Florida.
General James A. Van Fleet State Trail runs 29 miles through Central Florida's expansive Green Swamp, home to some of the state's most impressive wildlife. For a real adventure, try the 106.5-mile Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail, which stretches from Key Largo to Key West. Or for visitors who really want to unplug, visit Sanibel Island, a beautiful sanctuary with 24 paved miles that take you to beaches, a wildlife refuge and rehabilitation center, a historical lighthouse and village, a renowned seashell museum, and more.
