Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail

The Gainsville-Hawthorne State Trail is a 17-mile long paved pathway that spans between the cities of Gainesville, Rochelle and Hawthorne in Northern Florida. The trail was constructed along an abandoned railroad right-of-way. The trail goes past designated conservation areas and past miles of thick forest land. Most of the trail is located away from roadways and congestion.

The northwest end of the Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail is located at SW 6th Street and SW Depot Avenue. The trail goes by the southern end of Depot Park then swings to the south to travel through Sweetwater Wetlands Park.
