Tallahassee-St. Marks Historic Railroad Trail State Park - Recreational Activities

Recreational Activities

Activities include bicycling, skating, walking, jogging, and horseback riding. Amenities include a paved surface for those on foot or wheels and an unpaved trail for those on horseback. Parking is available at the trail head on SR 363/Woodville Hwy., just south of Tallahassee, as well as at the J. Lewis Hall Park in Woodville, the Wakulla Station Trailhead in Wakulla County, and the city park at the end of the trail in St. Marks.

Parks and recreational areas adjacent to the trail include the Munson Hills Trails, accessible 1.25 miles (2.01 km) south of the main trail head off SR 363; J. Lewis Hall Park in Woodville, accessible 2.5 miles (4.0 km) south of the main trail head off SR 363; the Wakulla Station Trailhead, accessible 9 miles (14 km) south of the main trail head (and 6.5 miles (10.5 km) north of St. Marks) off SR 363; and the San Marcos de Apalache Historic State Park, located at the end of the trail in St. Marks. The Munson Hills Trails are popular with off-road bicyclists and have recently been expanded to 21 miles (34 km) in length between two main (Munson Hills and Twilight) trails. J. Lewis Hall Park hosts numerous youth baseball games, among other events. An "adaptable playground" designed for special needs children has recently been installed at the Wakulla Station Trailhead.

Starting in late 2009, according to Florida Greenways and Trails, the trail will be completely resurfaced and widened to 12' in width. The portion of the trail south of the Wakulla Trailhead will be closed and reconstructed first, while the portion north of the Wakulla Trailhead will close and be reconstructed after work is completed on the southern end of the trail. In conjunction with the trail construction, a new trailhead and observatory will be built in the city of St. Marks near the current trail terminus. Overall construction is expected to be completed sometime in 2011.

    Minds do not act together in public; they simply stick together; and when their private activities are resumed, they fly apart again.
