Only 5 miles from the Florida state capitol, the Miccosukee Canopy Road Greenway is a natural oasis in an otherwise urban/suburban landscape. The greenway is actually a linear park along the Miccosukee Canopy Road, and stretches about 6.5 miles, sitting on 500 acres. The gravel and crushed stone trails parallel the roadway and are open to multiple uses including hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding. While most of the trail cuts through groves of hardwood and pine, intermittent pastures offer a change of scenery.
More than a natural escape, the trail is also a living historical and archaelogical exhibit. Micccosukee is one of 9 canopy roads in Tallahasee, Native American trails that later came to be used by Spanish explorers and then American settlers. The linear park sits on land preserved from old plantations, and initially provided pasture for cattle as well as grounds for quail-hunting.
A small parking lot can be found off Fleischmann Road, about 0.6 miles from its intersection with Miccosukee Canopy Road. Additional parking can be found on Miccosukee Road at Edenfield, Thornton and Crump roads.
