People across Florida are using greenways and trails in record numbers.

In September of 2023, the public will be asked to provide input on the draft Florida Greenways and Trails System Plan, so stay tuned!

Timeline at a Glance

  • The Florida Greenways and Trails System (FGTS) plan identifies existing trails, as well as planned and conceptual trail corridors. The plan also identifies the goals, objectives and actions needed to connect this system statewide.
  • This plan supports and builds upon local and regional trail efforts to identify one overall trail network that is the focused vision of a connected statewide system.
  • This will be the third update to the Florida Greenways and Trails System Plan since Connecting Florida’s Communities laid the groundwork in 1998 to implement the many greenways and trails programs and projects that exist today.
  • The current FGTS Plan guides the implementation of the connected statewide trail system through 2023.
  • The intent of this plan is to help provide guidance and to encourage our partners and stakeholders to work together effectively to reach mutual goals.
