The Miccosukee Greenway is a favorite place to walk with family and friends in Tallahassee. Open fields, natural woods, canopied trails, uphill, downhill, this trail has it all. This 7 to 8 mile long (end to end) trek parallels Miccosukee Rd and runs east from Fleischmann Rd to Crump Rd. It is estimated that there are probably 20+ miles worth of trails in this system. All of the main paths are well marked and easy to follow. On your visit you will see others walking, running, biking and riding horses.

There were nearly 90 people from a wide diverse cross section of our community at our last walk. This included the young, retired, families, people friendly pets and more.

See you on Saturday morning!
