 The Department of Environmental Protection’s Office of Greenways and Trails is hosting six public meetings across the state to update the opportunity maps for the Florida Greenways and Trails System. The opportunity maps are used to direct resources to these priority corridors to help complete the overall system of connected greenways and trails in Florida.
To ensure that the department uses the most accurate, current and comprehensive data for the Opportunity Maps, the Office of Greenways and Trails conducts reviews and updates of the maps every three years. The finalized maps will be presented to the Florida Greenways and Trails Council for approval at its December meeting.
During this planning process the opportunity map will be updated:
  • The Land Trails Opportunity Map represents the existing, planned and conceptual non-motorized trails that form a land-based trail network. The map comprises trail planning efforts by cities, counties, transportation planning organizations and other agencies throughout Florida, focusing on linear trails that form a comprehensive connected system.
