New FDEP Ecotourism Website Kicks Off Greenways & Trails Month

Touting Florida's award-winning trails as a major tourism attraction alongside beaches, golf courses and theme parks, the Florida Department of Environmental Protection's Office of Greenways and Trails today joined VisitFlorida.com to celebrate October as Greenways and Trails Month with the launch of a new trails website. The website highlights the benefits trails provide Florida's environment and tourism industry through healthy recreational opportunities, a reduced carbon footprint and an affordable alternative to traditional vacation activities.

The new website features more than 100 trails and serves as a one-stop-shop for residents and guests looking to plan an eco-vacation or simply take a day-trip down a paved or paddling trail. The website also provides a gateway to nearby businesses, outfitters, restaurants and overnight accommodations to make any trail trip complete.
