Withlacoochee State Trail; Citrus, Hernando,
and Pasco counties, Florida
The Withlacoochee State Trail is 46 miles long and traverses Citrus, Hernando, and a portion of Pasco counties in Florida. The trail is part of a rails to trails program and has been in existence since the early 1990's. Currently the trail is managed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protections Office of Greenways and Trails. There are three murals on and one adjacent to our trail.
The mural at right is a historical representation of the Floral City, Florida, train station, circa the late 1800's to early 1900's. The date it was painted is unknown. The mural is was painted on the side wall of a business and is physically only 20 feet off the trail. The mural is located at the intersection of Orange Avenue, Floral City, Florida, and the Withlacoochee State Trail.
The trail manager is:
James E. (Jim) Davis, Trail Manager
At right is a Historical Mural painted by Citrus High School Art Class February/March of 2004. It represents the rails-to-trails program within Florida. The mural is located at 315 North Apopka Avenue, Inverness Florida, in Citrus County and was painted on the Inverness Ranger Station, Office of Greenways and Trails, Florida Department of Environmental Protection.
Other simple murals of trees and palms were painted by a class of primary school children to cover up grafitti. The murals were painted on the North and South abutments of the Highway 41 Overpass, approximately .5 miles north of Turner Camp Road on the Withlacoochee State Trail in Inverness.
