475A (Land Bridge) Trailhead

The Land Bridge Trailhead provides paved parking, restroom facilities, picnic area, and potable water. A dedicated equestrian parking area and horse wash-down area are also available.

Please note that trails indicated on the map are the primary hiking, equestrian, and biking connector trails to reach the Land Bridge from the trailhead. The arrow symbol indicates where connecting and loop trails continue elsewhere. The Office of Greenways and Trails (OGT) is presently in the process of reviewing trails in this area and is working with user groups to determine the best possible future trail alignments.

West of the Land Bridge, hiking, equestrian and biking trails continue to the 49th Avenue Trailhead. See the corresponding map for exact trail locations.

The hiking trail delineated on the map is part of the Florida Trail, and the orange blazed portion is officially designated as Florida National Scenic Trail (FNST). Blue blazes mark the hiking loop trail that heads south just east of the land bridge and eventually returns north to the trailhead. There is a resting bench midway along this 1.75 mile loop. The hiking trail on this map is just one segment of the Florida Trail. The Florida Trail Association produces a detailed hiking guide and segment-by-segment maps that are very useful for hiking any segment of the Florida Trail. For more information, visit their
website at www.floridatrail.org.

The biking trail is single track in most areas, but in some locations, utilizes the double-track wagon trail.

The equestrian trail continues east across CR 475A to the Horse Park area which offers additional equestrian trails.
