Current Progress

The East Coast Greenway threads it way across nearly 600 miles in Florida. From Georgia, the Greenway enters the state at Fernandina Beach, then makes its way through 13 counties before reaching Key West, the southernmost mainland point of the United States. Travel is largely along the coast through seaside villages, America’s earliest historic sites, vast nature preserves, and major cities that include Jacksonville and Miami.

Much of the Greenway through Florida is on side path that runs along Highway A1A. It concludes with the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail, which hops from island to island for 106 miles (more than half of which is completed trail).

Please note: To cross between Georgia and Florida across the St. John's River, as an alternative to riding Route 17, touring cyclists can call Amelia River Cruises, 904-261-9972, to secure a chartered ferry (best for groups, due to cost) or Camden Bicycle Center, 912-576-9696, for an on-road "ferry" (shopping at the bike store encouraged).

Converging Trails: A Celebration in Titusville

In late February 2018, the community of Titusville and Brevard County, Florida, celebrated the completion of a new greenway intersecting with the Coast to Coast Trail (220 miles) and the St.Johns River to Sea Loop Trail (260 miles) along with the East Coast Greenway. The 15-mile Florida East Central Regional Rail Trail within Brevard County stretches from Canaveral Avenue in Titusville to the Volusia County line. A ribbon-cutting on Friday was followed by a community ride on Saturday. The ride targeted 300 cyclists but registration was cut off at 400 riders and 450 riders actually took part in the 40, 30, 20, and 5-mile rides.

Paul Haydt, Florida coordinator for the East Coast Greenway Alliance, presents a commemorative Greenway tile to Robin Birdsong, director of Florida's SUN Trail program during the Titusville ribbon-cutting ceremonies.
