Titusville Designated as Florida's Second Trail Town

Space Coast; Titusville, FL, June 28, 2018 

Office of Greenways and Trails logo The City of Titusville was designated as a Trail Town at the June 27, 2018 Florida Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), Office of Greenways and Trails Council meeting held in Tallahassee, Florida.  A Florida Trail Town is a community close to a long-distance non-motorized recreational trail and welcomes hikers, bicyclists, skaters and joggers with restaurants, shops and lodging. Titusville is the second Trail Town designation given in the State of Florida. 

The City of Titusville is becoming the hub of three converging multi-use trails: the Coast-to-Coast Trail a 250-mile 12 foot wide multi-purpose trail running from St. Petersburg through downtown Titusville. Eventually this trail will continue from Titusville through the Canaveral National Seashore to the beautiful natural Atlantic Ocean beaches; the St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop a 260-mile loop encompasses five counties Volusia, Putnam, St. Johns, Flagler and Brevard that when complete runs from Titusville to St. Augustine along the Atlantic Coast and St. Johns River corridor; the East Coast Greenway connecting Calais, Maine to Key West Florida that when complete, the 3,000-mile trail will become the nation's longest connecting protected biking and walking route.

"We could not be more proud and excited about being designated Florida's second Trail Town by the Department of Environmental Protection", said Mayor Walt Johnson. "The city recognizes the economic impact and importance of becoming a Trail Town. We continue to work diligently to become the premier destination and Trail Town in the State.  Our downtown merchants are excited and beginning to see the increase in their businesses by those trail users who eat, shop, and enjoy our very unique offerings". City Council and Staff recently constructed a downtown Welcome Center that houses a bicycle shop providing information, maps, bicycle sales and rentals, repairs, equipment, and regular activities to help meet the needs of trail users. Since the Welcome Center opening a year ago, the city averages over a thousand visitors a month from every state so far except for Hawaii.

 "The City of Titusville earned this designation by taking many strident steps over the years to be more pedestrian and bicycle friendly," said Doug Alderson, Assistant Bureau Chief and Trail Town Coordinator with the Florida Office of Greenways and Trails. "Trail users are indeed fortunate that Titusville sits at the crossroads of three major multi-use trails. We hope other communities will follow their example."

To recognize Florida's Trail Towns, DEP's Office of Greenways and Trails encourages interested communities to conduct self-assessments to gauge their strengths and weaknesses in relation to nearby trails and users. Trail Town candidates are then considered for approval by the legislatively established Florida Greenways and Trails Council. Designated Trail Towns will be featured on the Office of Greenways and Trails website and given metal signs that can be placed at trailheads and town gateways.
