Good Neighbor Trail

A Key Florida Coast-to-Coast Connector

The Good Neighbor Trail runs 10 miles east from Brooksville along a former narrow gauge railway line. Part of the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail, it links to the east with the Withlacoochee State Trail and to the west a connector eventually will link to the Suncoast Trail. The trailhead at Russell Street Park in Brooksville has restrooms, picnic tables, and historic exhibits - the 1885 Train Station and the One Room School House. Plans are to relocate other buildings to the site, creating a historic village. (Detailed map and photos below.)

Biking on Good Neighbor Trail

Brooksville Trailhead to Weatherly Road (section 1)

The original section of the trail, the first 4 miles from Brooksville runs alternately along the road, along power lines, and through natural areas.


Weatherly Road to Withlacoochee State Trail (section 2)

The second section, completed in September 2018, starts off alongside Richbarn Road but then runs through Withlacoochee State Forest to the State Trail. Through the forest is very remote - straight and with only moderate grades this is great for long-distance bikers. We visited when this section was newly built - a trail head is planned where the trail enters the forest, a covered bench or table through the forest would be a nice amenity.
