Fred George Greenway Trail

3043 Capital Cir NW
Tallahassee FL 32303
(850) 891-3866

The Wacissa River is one of the most beautiful rivers in the entire state of Florida with a multitude of springs flowing through the rugged, sparsely populated area of Florida’s Big Bend Region. Perfect for beginners or families with children, the Wacissa’s calm waters stretch for 15-miles and offers visitors a variety of recreational activities including swimming, snorkeling, canoeing, and kayaking. The beloved river can get crowded for the first mile down to the Blue Spring, the river’s most popular swimming hole. However, solitude and serenity can also be found along the river for those who get there early or visit on the weekdays. A public campground is also available about 10 miles downstream from the headsprings, making it the perfect weekend getaway.

The large majority of the space is the greenway — a 160-acre, view of North Florida’s natural charms: approximately 2 miles of hiking trails winding through dense woods into open, knee-high grass patches that nudge the edge of still waters. The other 10-acres have a multipurpose field to host Pop Warner football games, a regulation-size baseball diamond for Little League and Babe Ruth games, a playground, and a concession stand with restrooms. There is also a museum and education center on the grounds staffed by volunteers that is typically open on Saturday per month.


Featured Uses: Walking, jogging, nature watching, bicycling, and baseball. Leashed dogs are permitted.

Access: 3043 Capital Cir NW, Tallahassee, FL 32303

Amenities: Nature trails, baseball field, multi-purpose fields, playground, restrooms, picnic tables and benches
