The Florida State Parks Foundation has announced that Florida’s Greenways and Trails System hosted 10 million visitors during the last financial year, which concluded at the end of June 2020. The Office of Greenways and Trails, within the Division of Recreation and Parks, works with stakeholders throughout the state to plan and implement the Florida’s greenways and trails system. There are more than 7,500 miles of land-based trails in Florida and an additional 4,000 miles of designated paddling trails.

The most popular trail is the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway, a remarkable environmental success story that covers more than 71,000 acres and is enjoyed annually by more than 3 million visitors. The 110-mile, multi-use linear park runs from the Gulf of Mexico to the St. Johns River and in places is more than a mile wide.
