The Florida Coast to Coast Trail

The Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail (C2C) was developed in an effort to create a continuous paved multi-use trail across the State of Florida from the Gulf of Mexico to the Atlantic Ocean.  It will span approximately 250 miles when completed.  The Connector is approximately 75 percent complete with a number of gaps to close across the center of the state. The Connector will link communities between St. Petersburg and Titusville along its entire length into a major destination route that will allow residents and visitors to explore Central Florida by bicycle or foot. The Connector includes some of the state’s most popular trails, the Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail and the West Orange Trail. Both of which have fueled the economic transformation of communities, particularly Dunedin and Winter Garden. This corridor includes most of the the 51 mile East Central Regional Rail Trail, the longest single rail-trail corridor ever acquired by the state. The Connector will link all or part of the following existing multi-use trails, developed and managed by a broad range of communities and agencies: Coast to Coast Connector Map

The C2C is a major priority within the Florida Greenways and Trails System Plan, implemented by the Office of Greenways and Trails. It is also a keystone project within the Florida Greenways and Trails Foundation’s “Close the Gaps” Campaign. To learn more, log onto the Coast to Coast Trail Project Portal website.

Connector Summit: Trail users, planners, managers and elected officials met at the inaugural Coast to Coast Connector (C2C) Summit on October 1, 2014 in Winter Garden, Florida. Those individuals learned about the future of the C2C, an approximately 250-mile multi-use recreational trail corridor connecting local, regional, state and federal trails and 12 communities. The C2C will also link residents and tourists to some of Central Florida’s most ecologically significant natural resource areas, including the Starkey Wilderness Preserve, Withlacoochee State Forest and Canaveral National Seashore.
