Florida's first designated state trail follows the abandoned railbed of the
historic Tallahassee-St. Marks Railroad. The trail runs almost due south from
Tallahassee to the town of St. Marks, which is at the confluence of the St.
Marks and Wakulla rivers.
Resurfacing of the Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic
Railroad State Trail
Marks Trail was the first rail-trail in the State trail system to be
paved. After 20 years of service, it’s time to address wear and
tear, as well as safety issues such as bumps, dips, crumbling edges and
drop offs at the edge of the pavement. These improvements are
necessary for safety and to make the trail more usable for recreational
users, especially those on thin tire bicycles and in-line skates.
While resurfacing the trail surface is the primary objective of this
project, during this process it will be also widened to 12 ft. in most
areas. The trail currently has an 8 foot wide paved surface. For more
information, please see the

A parking lot for the Tallahassee-St. Marks Trail is located on S.R. 363, just
south of Tallahassee at the entrance of the trail.
Entrance is free. For further information about this trail, please call.
