Tab October is Florida Greenways & Trails Month


October is Florida’s Greenways and Trails Month—Time to Celebrate!

2010 Poster

October is the perfect time of year to celebrate the health, wealth and happiness to be found through Florida’s beautiful trails and greenways and the nature-based tourism they support. Governor Rick Scott has proclaimed the month of October as Florida Greenways and Trails Month. The Florida Park Service and its Office of Greenways and Trails invites you to take part in this signature program to highlight the benefits and value of the state’s diverse trail network.

Trail-related activities throughout the state will include festivities such as dedications, educational exhibits, trail rides, paddling excursions, bird and butterfly viewing programs, trail blazing and clean-up events will be listed on this website and updated weekly. To register an event for Florida Greenways and Trails Month, please submit a registration form. For more information call (850) 245-2052 or email kae.craig@dep.state.fl.us.

To learn more about the activities planned throughout the state, as listed by region and date, see the statewide Greenways and Trails Month calendar. For more event listings, visit FloridaStateParks.org.


  • The signature image for the 2011 Florida Greenways and Trails Month is that of the Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad State Trail—the first state rail-trail to be paved in Florida. After twenty years of service, the Trail was recently resurfaced and widened. A ribbon cutting to mark the reopening of the Tallahassee-St. Marks Trail will help kick off Greenways and Trails Month.

    You are welcome to download either a letter size (8-1/2” x 11”) image of the poster
    , a ledger size (11”x17”) or a poster size (18" x 24") image. If you have any questions, please contact dean.rogers@dep.state.fl.us in the  Office of Greenways and Trails.
