Florida Greenways and Trails System Plan and Maps

 
 

A New Vision for the Florida Greenways and Trails System (FGTS) ... 2019-2023 Plan and Maps Update

 

The FGTS Plan establishes the vision for implementing a connected statewide system of greenways and trails for recreation, conservation, alternative transportation, healthy lifestyles, a vibrant economy and a high quality of life. The original FGTS Plan was completed in 1998 and adopted by the Florida Legislature in 1999, laying the groundwork for many programs, projects and initiatives that exist today. The updated FGTS Plan and maps guides implementation of the connected statewide trail system from 2019 through 2023.

The Office of Greenways and Trails (OGT) has updated its statewide opportunity and priority trail maps. Many trails are eligible for certain types of funding if they are on one or both maps.

As part of the update, OGT held 14 public workshops from September through early December of 2017 throughout the state to receive input from trail users, local planners and the public. OGT also received hundreds of e-mails and letters. The input helps to shape the direction of trails for years to come! The final draft of the maps were approved with some modifications by the Florida Greenways and Trails Council at their January 11 meeting in Tallahassee. The final versions are posted below. The draft Plan was approved by the Council at their September 14 meeting in Titusville and the final version will be posted soon.
