In order to promote bicycle-related recreation and tourism throughout the region, North Central Florida Regional Planning Council developed a bicycle trail inventory and created interactive easy-to-use maps of the trails and related recreation information. Bicycling Trails of Natural North Florida provides the best available single-source of information for tourists interested in bicycling and related recreation within the 11-county Northeast Florida region. An online region-wide map and 11 individual county maps were designed to display local bicycle trails, complete with mileage and hyperlinks to additional information on state parks and local recreation opportunities. The maps are all available to be accessed on the Original Florida Tourism Task Force website. Recognizing tourism as a significant source of future economic growth, the development and marketing of these maps helps promote regional tourism development as they increase awareness of the hundreds of miles of beautiful biking trails located throughout the region.
This initiative received a 2015 NADO Innovation Award. For more information, contact:
