overview

Description:

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 Europe. Today, a canopy of foliage arches over a premier rail trail. The trail begins at Florida's capital city, runs through part of the Apalachicola National Forest, and ends at the coastal community of St. Marks. Along the coast, cyclists find fresh Florida seafood, fishing, and the San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park. A short ride from the north trailhead, the Munson Hills off-road trail offers a scenic and challenging ride through some of the most varied terrain in the Apalachicola National Forest. The single-track trail has concentric four- and eight-mile loops that twist through spacious longleaf pine forests intermixed with ponds and wetlands.
