Nature Coast State Trail

Natural North Florida Biking

Nature Coast State Trail is built along an abandoned Atlantic Coastline Railroad rail bed. The trail starts just west of Cross City and goes east to Trenton. The the first mile is away from the road, then runs along US 98 starting in Cross City. At Wilcox Junction in the middle, a leg runs south to Fanning Springs and Chiefland. A scenic highlight is the Historic Suwannee River Railroad Bridge over the Suwannee River just east of Old Town. Much of the trail parallels US 98/19 and SR 26 with little shade, other sections are through forest. Many benches and rest stops. (Detailed map and photos below.)
