St. Marks River Preserve Trail

11950 Tram Rd.
Tallahassee FL 32311
850-487-7989

Nestled along the banks of the St. Marks River headwaters, this park offers a picnic area, multi-use recreational area, with an extensive system of trails for hiking, horseback riding, and off-road bicycling. The existing trail network in the park winds through upland pine forests, hardwood thickets, and natural plant communities along the banks of the river. The St. Marks River is not navigable within the park boundaries, and it is not conducive to canoeing or kayaking.
The park offers over 16 miles of hiking on multi-use, asphalted trails. The trails pass through sunny upland pine communities and shady wetlands. Wildlife viewing opportunities are abundant as visitors may see deer, raccoons, bears, foxes, birds of prey, and a wide variety of songbirds. Although the terrain is relatively flat, the trails can be quite sandy, and there are some low water crossings where your feet will get wet. Hikers are encouraged to prepare for wilderness type hiking, as there are no facilities.

Featured Uses: Walking, running, inline skating, equestrian, wildlife watching, and cycling. Leashed dogs are permitted.
