Welcome to Withlacoochee State Trail

Welcome to Withlacoochee State Trail

Bring water along for the ride! Dehydration due to the weather is a preventable condition; drink adequate fluids and use cooler, shaded areas if possible. In the hot summer month, users of the trail should take care to drink plenty of fluids and be self-aware of their condition.

At 46 miles in length, the Withlacoochee State Trail is presently the longest paved rail-trail 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 and 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 Trilby. 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 wildlife and access to many other 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.
