A few months ago, Visit Tallahassee launched Trailahassee…


[quote]…the only resource residents or visitors need to make the most of the trails in and around Florida’s Capital City.[/quote]

This resource is an incredible tool, helping users make the most of Tallahassee’s phenomenal outdoor spaces.  When you live in a town with so much to offer the outdoor loving, adventure seeking, explorer type, it’s icing on the cake to have a place to go to rediscover your favorite spots and to learn about new ones.  Trailahassee provides this and more, and it’s all just a click away.

For each Trail listed, you’ll find a description, some history, recommendations, amenities, entry cost, pictures, videos, as well as a chart summarizing everything.  For example, here’s a portion of the page where Apalachee Regional Park is featured…

Created primarily for runners, this trail was designed to give runners the opportunity to run on several types of surfaces.

This hiking, running and biking trail was a coordinated effort of the Leon County Parks & Rec Department and Gulf Winds Track Club, and is a welcome addition to the already extensive trail networks that wind in and around the capital city.

The 3-mile trail begins on a gravel road and then transitions to a compacted shell trail. Along the way, users will pass a pond that’s commonly used for fishing before running along the edges of a large field where enthusiasts fly model planes (it’s sunny here, so remember sunscreen). The trail then turns back uphill to pass by several sports fields and through a forest of towering oaks before returning to the gravel road that leads to the park entrance where parking, restrooms and water fountains await.

Amenities: Parking area, 4 multi-purpose fields (2 lighted)

Cost: No entry fee
