The Florida Coast to Coast Trail (C2C) uses existing bike paths – some of which, after many years in the planning stage, are finally being completed – while also proposing to connect those together with some new bike paths that do not yet exist. We began riding on the initial segments of the C2C in 2013. These are overviews from our rides.
East to west, these are the bike paths that are used to make up portions of the Florida Coast to Coast Trail.
