Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail

From Tallahassee to St. Mark

The Tallahassee/St. Marks Historic Railroad Trail runs from Florida's capital city, past the Apalachicola National Forest, and ends in the coastal community of St. Marks. Through the early 1900's, this historic railroad corridor was used to carry cotton from the plantation belt to the coast for shipment to textile mills in England and New England. Today, as a paved trail, it provides an excellent workout for street bikers, walkers and skaters. It also provides opportunities for horseback riding on the adjacent unpaved trail, and access to the Munson Hills Off Road Trails in the National Forest. 

St. Marks offers seafood, fishing or San Marcos Apalache Historic State Park to top off your journey. 16 miles, paved 8' wide (a 4.5 mile, paved, 12' wide St. Marks Trail extension continues north from the northern trailhead into the City of Tallahassee)

Length: 16.0 miles

Difficulty: 3
