Gainesville-Hawthorne State Trail




Adventure along an old trade route!


Passing by native plants and wildlife, unique scenery, and backyard Florida culture, the old railbed turned greenway is both a paved multi-use recreational surface and a grassy path for equestrians. As you make your way down the trail, trade your modern life for the days of citrus groves, small railroad towns, and coal burning locomotives. The Gainesville Hawthorne Trail, a "Trader's Path," stretches back even further in time to the days of William Bartram, Seminole Indians, and Florida's first people. We invite you to take a look at the self-guided tour brochure at one of the many kiosks along the trail and learn more about this unique piece of the Real Florida.


The Gainesville-Hawthorne Trail State Park stretches 16 miles from the City of Gainesville's Boulware Springs Park through the Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park and the Lochloosa Wildlife Management Area. The recreational trail is designed for walking, cycling, and horseback riding. Parking is provided at three trail heads: 3300 SE 15th Street in Gainesville, at Boulware Springs City Park 7902 SE 200th Drive, off of CR2082 west of Hawthorne 2182 SE 71st Avenue in Hawthorne Primitive restrooms are located at mile markers 1.0 and 6.6.
