Mirror Installation at CR 475 & CR 475-A Underpasses
Paved trail users and equestrians riding in the vicinity of CR 475 and CR 475-A underpasses should be aware that the Cross Florida Greenway has installed convex mirrors at CR 475 and CR 475-A to aid in seeing opposing bicycle and equestrian traffic. The mirrors are intended to improve your situational awareness at these locations. Please use them to your advantage and report any maintenance issues to 352-236-7143.
Country Club Blvd - Public Access Closure
The former public access to the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway State Recreation and Conservation Area (CFG) at N.E. 140th St. (aka) Country Club Boulevard is closed due to the road’s status as a private road. No public Greenway access is available at that location, however access to that area of the CFG is available approximately 5 miles to the south at the Gore’s Landing Recreation area that is maintained and operated by Marion County Parks and Recreation.
Rodman Campground Closure
Due to recent heavy rains in the area, we have had to close several sites at the Rodman Campground. The campground is still open and available for camping in most areas. These closures only affect select low-lying area sites. For specific information regarding these closures or for any information regarding the Rodman Campground, please call 386-326-2846.
Hikers enjoy the nature trails which include a portion of the 1,400-mile, congressionally designated Florida National Scenic Trail Home to the Florida Horse Park and many miles of loop trails, the Greenway offers an extraordinary opportunity to explore diverse aspects of Florida's wild beauty on horseback. Additional horseback riding opportunities can be found on the nearby lands of the Southwest Water Management District at the Hálpata-Tastanaki Preserve, located approximately four miles east of Dunnellon on the south side of CR 484. The Preserve offers several miles of multi-use, recreational trails and the Pruitt Trailhead which provides non-potable water for horses and an equestrian staging area. The Ocklawaha and Withlacoochee Rivers, traversing opposite ends of the greenway, supply miles of scenic paddling trails. Mountain bike enthusiasts can access more than 80 miles of internationally acclaimed and award winning off-road bike trails from the Santos Trailhead near Ocala.
Fishing is a popular activity at both ends of the Greenway, from near Palatka where the Rodman Recreation Area offers places to camp, fish, watch wildlife and picnic, as well as the western end near Inglis, which includes Lake Rousseau and the 5-mile, paved Withlacoochee Bay Trail that extends to the Gulf of Mexico.
The western end of the Greenway is featured in the Citrus County segment of the Great Florida Birding and Wildlife Trail.
