Tallahassee/St. Marks Historic Railroad Trail runs from Florida’s
capital city, past the Apalachicola National Forest, and ends
in the coastal community of St. Marks. Through the early 1900’s,
this historic railroad corridor was used to carry cotton from
the plantation belt to the coast for shipment to textile mills
in England and New England. Today, as a paved trail, it provides
an excellent workout for street bikers, walkers and skaters.
It also provides opportunities for horseback riding on the
adjacent unpaved trail, and access to the Munson Hills Off
Road Trails in the National Forest. St. Marks offers seafood,
fishing or San Marcos Apalache Historic State Park to top
off your journey.
