Majorie Harris Carr Florida Cross Greenway
The perfect starting point for bikers of all difficulty levels, the Cross Florida Greenway allows you to choose the trail experience that fits your own skill level! The more than 70,000 acres of land has more than 300 miles of trails of all types including hiking, mountain biking, equestrian and paved multi-use.
The Santos & Vortex Loop
A 4.6-mile loop that takes an average of 90 minutes to complete, this trail is known to be a moderately challenging route. A very popular option for hiking, mountain biking, and running, the trail is open year-round and is beautiful to visit regardless of the time of year.
If you’re looking for the equestrian trails, you’ll find a day-use equestrian staging area located just west of U.S. 441 and at the Santos Trailhead. The trailhead provides access to the Cross Florida Greenway equestrian trails that run clear over to the Pruitt Trailhead near Dunnellon. It’s a truly extensive equestrian system made up of over 60 miles of horse trails with a variety of difficulty levels and even wagon and carriage opportunities.

The Baseline Road Trail features a paved multi-use urban trail experience. Best known for its diverse scenery, wildlife viewing and rolling terrain along 5.1 miles, it’s known to be an easy route you can complete in about 90 minutes. Offering both parking and amenities like a kid’s playground, it’s easy to understand why this trail gets more popular year after year.
Marshall Swamp Trailhead
Explore this easy, 4.7-mile unpaved trail through Marshall Swamp and a segment of the Florida National Scenic Trail.
