Apalachee Regional Park

This trail is a pristine, multi-surface course that can host running events of all sizes. The facility features numerous course/distance options through the rolling hills, lowlands and pine forests. The trail was designed to give runners the opportunity to run on several types of surfaces. When the trail is not being used for a running event, it is open to the general public for hiking, running and biking. The park includes four multi-purpose grass fields with American football field goals, two of which are lighted.  These fields are also used for soccer and lacrosse. The parking area can accommodate more than 3,500 vehicles at one time.
