Cross Florida Greenway - Inglis Island Trails
Welcome to Cross Florida Greenway - Inglis Island Trails
Stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to the St. Johns River, the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway occupies much of the land formerly known as the Cross Florida Barge Canal. This 110-mile corridor encompasses a variety of natural habitats and offers an array of trails and recreation areas where visitors can experience Florida's premier greenway.
The Inglis Island Trails are located in the Cross Florida Greenway's west zone. Inglis Island was developed as part of the construction of the Inglis Lock and Cross Florida Barge Canal during the 1960s. This island of approximately 1,200 acres is situated between Inglis Lock and the Inglis Main Dam. The recreation area at the dam provides access to the trails. The trails offer views of the island's natural communities which include cypress swamp, pine flatwoods and mixed hardwood hammocks.
Approximately 7.5 miles natural surface multi-use trails on Inglis Island.
Approximate 2-miles paved, multi-use trail, from the Inglis Main Dam to the northwest corner of the island. Mullet Point is in development.
