Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail

Welcome to Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail

Welcome to Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail

The Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail runs 20.5 miles from Florida's capital city to the coastal community of St. Marks. Through the early 1900s, this historic railroad corridor was used to carry cotton from the plantation belt to the coast for shipment to textile mills in England and New England. Officially part of Florida's Greenways and Trails System, this state trail has also been designated as a National Recreation Trail®. This was the first rail-trail in the Florida's system of greenways and trails to be paved, providing a scenic experience for running, walking, bicycling and skating. Horseback riding is available on the adjacent unpaved trail. Here outdoor enthusiasts can hike a portion of the Florida National Scenic Trail, which joins the Trail at U.S. 98 and continues south. At the main trailhead, there is access to the Munson Hills/Twilight Mountain Bike Trails in the Apalachicola National Forest. At the southern terminus of the trail, the coastal City of St. Marks welcomes trail users to enjoy seafood dining, fishing and entertainment and learn about the history of the area at San Marcos de Apalachee Historical State Park. The Tallahassee-St. Marks State Trail is a completed section of the developing, 120-mile "Capital City to the Sea Loop" corridor and is a destination along the "Big Bend Scenic Byway."

Trail Length/Surface

The asphalted trail is 16 miles in length and 12 feet wide.
