Florida's Equestrian Friendly Trail Network Listed By Managing Entities

 

Nationally Managed Trails

East Coast Greenway - The East Coast Greenway, a national combined greenway and trail system which has been in the planning stages since 1991, will eventually extend 3,000 miles from Calais, Maine to Key West. The Greenway will connect 25 major cities on the eastern seaboard of the United States and will be accessible to over 30 million people. Often called the "urban Appalachian Trail," 80% of the trail will be located off-road and no motorized vehicles will be allowed. In Florida, 600 miles of trail are planned, all on the east coast of the state. More information about this trail system is being prepared.
