Lying largely within the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway, this trail begins just off Bridge Rd by a trail kiosk with a map of the route. This paved path passes through 2.5 miles of cypress and over the Withlacoochee River via a magnificent bridge with observation platforms. A spur partway along the trail connects to Blue Run, a small Dunnellon park (19680 E Pennsylvania Ave) less than a mile from town. There are a few trailheads along the route with parking and restrooms. As the trail continues, it crosses US Hwy 41 and then winds through a wooded, sparsely populated residential area. The trail ends at the Withlacoochee State Trail - Gulf Junction Trailhead (2246 W Magenta Dr, Citrus Springs), which is where the Dunnellon Trail and the Withlacoochee State Trail connect.
The Dunnellon Trail serves as part of the connector from the Withlacoochee State Trail into Dunnellon and to the Greenway. This trail, however, is more than just a connector. It is quite beautiful in its own right, and is well worth seeing if you are in Dunnellon riding the Withlacoochee Trail or visiting Rainbow Springs.
Parking is available in a lot on Bridges Rd near the Dunnellon Little League Field (12214 Bridges Rd), at the northern end of the Blue Run spur (19680 E Pennsylvania Ave), by the Dunnellon Trailhead CR 39 (1239 W Withlacoochee Trail, Citrus Springs), and there is a parking lot at the southern most end of the trail by the Withlacoochee State Trail - Gulf Junction Trailhead (2246 W Magenta Dr, Citrus Springs).
