The map below includes links to information on over 1,300 existing recreational trails located in the state of Florida.
An existing recreational trail is defined as a paved or unpaved trail for hiking, biking, equestrian, multiple use, paddling or motorized use (all terrain vehicles, off-highway motorized vehicles and recreational off-highway vehicles) and is open to the public. This does not include on-road bike lanes or sidewalks. A larger version of this map is available.
To get started, simply click and drag to your desired location in the map. You can zoom in/out using the +/- buttons in the upper left-hand corner of the map window. If you are interested in discovering trails in a certain area, use the search bar in the upper right-hand corner of this map window to search by places such as cities, counties or major geographic features.

We are not responsible for trail information presented on non-DEP websites. Certain portions of all designated state trails have been constructed with federal recreation trails and transportation alternative funding. These corridors provide opportunities for non-motorized modes of recreation including bicycling, inline skating, hiking and horseback riding. Federal guidelines prohibit motorized (electric or gas powered) vehicles on designated state trails funded in this manner.
