Florida Multi-use Trail Opportunities

Overview

A multi-use trail is one where two or more user groups (equestrian, hiking, off-road biking) can use the trail simultaneously. The areas shown in this layer are intended to identify opportunity corridors of statewide and regional significance. The trail priorities contained in this dataset were approved by the Florida Greenways and Trails Council in September 2008.

Description

A multi-use trail is one where two or more user groups (equestrian, hiking, off-road biking) can use the trail simultaneously. Multi-use trails can be either paved or unpaved. The areas shown in this layer are intended to identify opportunity corridors of statewide and regional significance. These corridors are 4 kilometers (approx. 2.5 miles) wide to reflect the variability of actual trail location after planning and design is completed. The trail priorities contained in this dataset were approved by the Florida Greenways and Trails Council in September 2008.  This GIS layer was created by the Office of Greenways of Trails and the UF GeoPlan Center, to support the Florida Statewide Greenways & Trails System.
