Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway
Stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to the St. Johns River, the Cross Florida Greenway occupies much of the land formerly known as the Cross Florida Barge Canal. Several multi-use trails pass by communities such as Ocala, Belleview, Palatka, Inglis and Dunnellon. The greenway includes America's first land bridge, a wildlife crossing over Interstate 75 just south of Ocala. The land bridge is one of the first multi-use bridges of its kind, landscaped with native vegetation, including longleaf pine, sandhill and sand live oak. The greenway offers an array of trails and recreation areas for all visitors. Crossing Central Florida from the Gulf of Mexico to the St. Johns River is the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway which occupies much of the land formerly known as the Cross Florida Ship and later Barge Canal projects. A series of historic events transformed this corridor from one of the nation's largest uncompleted public works project to a world class greenway. Today, this 110-mile corridor encompasses diverse natural habitats for observing Florida's native flora and fauna and offers a wide variety of trails and recreation areas. With hiking, biking, equestrian and paddling trails, boat ramps, fishing spots, campgrounds, a barrier-free Boundless Playground® and picnic shelters, the Cross Florida Greenway offers recreational opportunities for all interests and ages. We welcome you to visit these trail and recreation areas within the Cross Florida Greenway. The below trail section list is in order from West to East.
