Cross Florida Greenway - Withlacoochee Bay Trail

Welcome to Cross Florida Greenway's Withlacoochee Bay Trail

Stretching from the Gulf of Mexico to the St. Johns River, the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway occupies much of the lands formerly known as the Cross Florida Ship and later Barge Canal projects. This 110-mile corridor encompasses a variety of natural habitats and offers an array of trails and recreation areas where visitors can experience Florida's premier greenway.

The Felburn Park Trailhead and Withlacoochee Bay Trail are located at the far western end of the Greenway. Felburn Park, formerly a limerock mine of approximately 140-acres, features the 40-acre "Phil's Lake."

The Withlacoochee Bay Trail traverses 5 miles west from the Felburn Park Trailhead to the Gulf of Mexico, along the southern side of the former Cross Florida Barge Canal. This 12-foot wide, multi-use paved trail runs adjacent to the barge canal for the first 2.5 miles and then switches its path to the south side of the "berm" that was created by the canal's excavation. The westernmost 2.5 miles of the trail runs through scenic maritime hammock and salt marsh habitats. Bicycling, walking or inline skating on the paved trail provide numerous opportunities to observe wildlife along the route.
