Nature’s Place to Leave the Roads Behind

Go wild in natural outdoor Florida. View extraordinary scenery while exploring land and waterscapes. Rich with parks and preserves, it’s home to unspoiled sanctuaries of lush life; many species of flora, fauna and wildlife call Florida’s Adventure Coast home.

From the Gulf of Mexico coastline, riversides and lakeshores to environmentally sensitive and deeply forested, a third of Hernando County land is devoted to outdoor recreation. Leave the roads behind and find fun at playgrounds, sports complexes, recreation areas and vast natural spaces away from it all.

Grab your front row seat to authentic Florida adventures. From paved to rugged, miles and miles of marked trails await your discovery. Explore by foot, bicycle, kayak, ATV or horseback. Whatever your pace, there are trails to suit you.

Downloadable trails maps are available in the individual trails listings.
