Florida - Lake Minneola Scenic Trail - Clermont Trail
Though these were actually constructed as separate trails, one is a direct continuation of the other along the same lake. This is a very pleasant, mostly urban trail, with higher hills than any other rail trail in Florida. Though they’re only on the east end, and don't really require very much effort, they can still produce some fast speeds on the downhills. The lake views on the western side are spectacular during sunsets and very pretty the rest of the time. Though subject to high winds during storms, this is a nice trail for all levels of riders and will become particularly attractive for long rides when connected to the West Orange Trail in the east and General James A. Van Fleet State Trail in the west. This is also one of the few trails with streetlights on most portions.

Florida - Nature Coast State Trail
The Nature Coast State Trail provides an excellent opportunity to experience the Sunshine State's Natural North Florida. In the early 1900s, trains were replacing the steamship as the freight and passenger carrier throughout the Suwannee River Valley. Today, visitors can retrace this historic route of the Atlantic Coastline Railroad, traversing 32 miles of Florida's beautiful Nature Coast region. Officially part of Florida's Greenways and Trails System, this state trail has also been designated as a National Recreation Trail®. It consists of two primary alignments built along abandoned rail lines that intersect at Wilcox Junction, connecting the communities of Cross City, Trenton, Fanning Springs and Chiefland. As funding becomes available, the trail will extend approximately nine miles east from Trenton toward Newberry. Among the trail's highlights is the Historic Suwannee River Railroad Bridge which is east of the Old Town Trailhead. The trail is near Fanning Springs and Manatee Springs state parks and Andrews Wildlife Management Area. An equestrian trail parallels 4.5 miles of the paved trail from Old Town to Fanning Springs.
