GF&A Trail... Florida Panhandle

Bike Trail... Part of the 'Capital City to the Sea Regional Trails' System

The bike trail is on the route of the former Georgia, Florida & Alabama Railroad, but today commonly called the Gopher, Frog & Alligator Trail (GF&A Trail). Running through the Apalachicola National Forest, a 2.5 mile paved section has been completed - envisioned in the future as part of a 52-mile trail from Tallahassee to Sopchoppy. Note: Forest trails may be closed at times due to weather or other factors, check the link (below) for current status. (Map link and photos below.)

Biking on the GF&A Trail... Comments and Photos

In the Apalachicola National Forest

Trout Lake Park is the main trailhead, with parking, restrooms, picnic and fishing. At the Helen Trailhead on FR 354 is dirt parking only, or there's a small dirt parking area at trail end on Helen Guard Station Road. The first mile of the trail is wooded before crossing and then running along Springhill Road - but sufficiently off the quiet road to maintain a serene feeling.
