The trail runs from Bridges Road in Dunnellon 2.5 miles along the scenic Rainbow River and across a bridge over the Withlacoochee River to US 41/CR 39 in Citrus Springs. Parking is available at three trailheads: at CR39 just off US 41 in Citrus Springs; at Blue Run Park off CR484 in Dunnellon, and on Bridges Road (down the dirt road, just past the playing fields) in Dunnellon. A portion of the trail is part of the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway. Eventually, it will link to the Withlacoochee State Trail (currently, via a street route) and other trails in the planned statewide network. (Detailed map and photos below.)
