- Judy Alexander, President of Gulf Winds Track Club
This trail is the first of its kind in Leon County and is a pristine addition to the already commendable park system present in Tallahassee. This trail was made possible by the coordinated efforts of the Leon County Parks & Recreation, FSU, and Gulf Winds Track Club. The Gulf Winds Track Club at FSU provided funding for the creation of the course.
The trail was designed to give runners the opportunity to run on several types of surfaces. When the trail is not being used for a running event, it is open to the general public for hiking, running, and biking. The course will be used not only for local races but also for district and regional school races.
Directions to Park
The park is located at 7550 Apalachee Parkway, about four-and-a-half miles east of US-319 on US-27.
