Tallahassee/St. Marks Historic Railroad Trail
The Tallahassee/St. Marks Historic Railroad Trail runs all the way from Tallahassee to the small village of St. Marks on Florida's Gulf coast. In the early 1900’s, the trail was used to carry cotton by rail from the plantation belt to the coast for shipment to textile mills in England and New England. Today it is a paved trail for bikers, walkers and skaters and there is even an adjacent unpaved trail for horseback riding. I took this picture at the Main Trailhead just south of Tallahassee. This section of the trail is currently being resurfaced and should be finished sometime this summer. I'm following Clytie's suggestion in her comment and linking this post to a wonderful meme called Signs, Signs.
