map showing Cross Florida GreenwayCrossing central Florida from the Gulf of Mexico to the St. Johns River is the state's premier greenway. The Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway occupies much of the land formerly known as the Cross Florida Barge Canal. A series of historic events transformed this corridor from one of Florida's biggest public works projects ever to a world class greenway (more...).

Today, this 110 mile corridor traverses a wide variety of natural habitats and offers a variety of trails and recreation areas where visitors can experience the wonders of Florida in their own recreational style (more...).

A nature trail winds through Marshall Swamp. Trails blazed through barge canal diggings provide challenging rides for equestrians. The Ocklawaha and Withlacoochee Rivers, traversing opposite ends of the greenway, supply miles of scenic paddling. The Santos area offers several miles of trails for off-road biking.

The Cross Florida Greenway Land Bridge, a landscaped overpass that connects the east and west sides of the Greenway, allows trail users and wildlife to safely cross six lanes of Interstate 75 traffic (more...).

Anywhere along the Greenway, visitors might cross paths with something wild -- gopher tortoises, whitetail deer, squirrels, shore birds, waterfowl, alligators, or even manatees.
