Dunnellon Trail Description

Lying largely within the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway, this trail passes 2.5 miles through stands of cypress and across the Withlacoochee River over a magnificent new (in 2014) bridge. A spur partway along the trail connects to Blue Run, a small Dunnellon park less than a mile from town. The trail serves as part of a potential connector from the Withlacoochee State Trail into Dunnellon and to the Greenway. The trail, however, is more than just a connector. It is quite beautiful in its own right, and is well worth seeing if you are riding the Withlacoochee Trail or visiting Rainbow Springs, also in Dunnellon. For cyclists, there is a manageable on-road route between the north trailhead of the Withlacoochee Trail and the south trailhead of the Dunnellon Trail.

Parking and Trail Access

The easiest access by car is either at the south trailhead on CR39, 275 feet east of the intersection of CR39 and Route 41, or at Blue Run park on Route 484, about a mile east of Routes 41 and 484 in Dunnellon. Both locations have a large parking lot and signage, including a map. There is also access at a trailhead 3/4 mile south of Route 484, on Bridges Road. There is a parking lot and signage there as well, but Bridges Road itself is soft, sandy and bumpy.

If cycling, you can ride 2.6 miles (on roads) from the Withlacoochee Trail to the Dunnellon Trail by following this route:
From north end of the Withlacoochee, follow Corrine St to Martinelli Blvd.  Follow Martinelli to Route 41. Cross Route 41 on foot. Continue on Martinelli to N Citrus Springs Blvd. Follow N Citrus Springs Blvd to CR39 (aka Withlacoochee Trail, but not the rail trail.) Follow CR39 to south end of the Dunnellon Trail. CR39 has no paved shoulder.

Dunnellon Trail Reviews

I have ridden this trail several times during the past year & half and enjoy it just as much each time. It is a very easy trail but beautiful all of the way and the Bridge over the river is spectacular!!!!!!!!!!!!. Short, but one of my favorite trails to ride and I ride many of the trails in Central Fl.

Hard surface trail. Nice country trail but close to odd house, Estates etc. Nice bridge over looking river. couple of animals. nice and easy hour circle cycle. Well maintained Trail.
