The Nature Coast State Trail is a 32-mile long paved trail located in Northern Florida. The trail was constructed along abandoned railroad right-of-ways that existed in the Suwannee River Valley in the early 1900s.

The trail spans between Cross City and Trenton with a branch that heads to the south at Fanning Springs and reaches down to Chiefland. There are plans to expand the trail to the east as far a Newberry.
