Cedar Key Railroad Trestle Nature Trail Description

Cedar Key Railroad Trestle Nature Trail is on a small island off the coast of northwestern Florida about 60 miles from Gainsville, the nearest big city. The town of Cedar Key itself, with fewer than 1,000 residents, is a charming place with many historical buildings and a relaxed vibe.

The trail follows the rail line that once ran from Fernandia Beach to Cedar Key from 1861 to 1932. Though it's quite short (only 1,700 feet), the rail-trail offers walkers a pleasant, natural escape with native vegetation on all sides flush with birds and wildlife. At trail's end, a few old trestle posts poke up through the shallow bay, remnants of a bridge that once carried trains across the water.

Note that bicycles are not permitted on the path, but would not be well-suited with the trail's sandy surface in any case.

Parking and Trail Access

From State Road 24 southbound (approaching Cedar Key), turn onto Grove Road; a small parking area is immediately on the right at the trailhead.
