Building trails at Weeki Wachee Preserve
« on: February 01, 2018, 11:52:46 AM »
Hello! I live in weeki wachee and there is a huge Nature preserve here that has existing paved/unpaved biking trails already, but there is a lot of room for expansion there! There are plenty of hills due to it being an old limestone quarry, but its also very flat and open in areas. The trails are fun and all are surrounded by multiple lakes!I have been biking here for over 10yrs and can map out majority of the park in my head.  My question is, how would i go about contacting someone about maybe building up some trails and maintaining current ones as well?  I figured it would have to be sponsored or in need of a permits. Somebody please help me out here!

First thing you have to find out who the Land Manager is.
Then, that person can give you the details of what they require from you to be able to do volunteer work on the trails, if they are legal trails, and if you can build more.

Itís all up to the AHJ to tell you.

And if it is the one I am thinking, good luck. You practically need a permit just to breath the air on Water Management District Land.

I do believe it belongs to swfwmd. Kinda figured they would own it considering its an old quarry. It's a shame because its a beautiful place.
