Regional Trails

The Withlacoochee State Trail is a 46-mile long paved pathway that spans between Citrus Springs and Lacoochee to the northeast of Tampa in West Central Florida. The trail was constructed along an abandoned railroad right-of-way and travels past residential neighborhoods, past farmland and through thick woodlands. The trail goes past a number of schools and local parks.
