Description Suggest an Edit

The Withlacoochee Bay Trail extends from the Gulf, north of Crystal River and south of Inglis, nearly 5 miles east to just beyond North Suncoast Boulevard. The trail provides access to a 758-acre equestrian area, picnic pavilions and a canoe launch.

There are plenty of birding opportunities as well as observation decks along the barge canal, which the trails follows. There are several side trails, including some through Felburn Park.

Be sure to also visit the nearby Withlacoochee State Trail.
