Georgia & Florida Trail, Inc. is a non-profit organization whose mission is the conversion of abandoned portions of the historic G & F Railroad corridor, into a beautiful linear park with paved surfaces for non-motorized recreation, such as walking, skating, jogging, wheelchair and bicycle use. We take inspiration and design cues from dozens of successful rail trails across the USA, and from the Rails to Trails Conservancy. Beautiful signage, rest areas, benches and facilities will make the trail a fun and welcoming space. Security, trail etiquette and maintenance are of paramount importance to ensure safety for residents and visitors. These greenspaces have proven to revitalize communities and increase adjacent home and property values. Our first goal is the creation of the Sweet Onion Rail Trail from downtown Vidalia to Hazlehurst Georgia and on to Douglas (65-miles). Please help make this a reality by joining Friends of the Sweet Onion Trail.

The proposed Sweet Onion Trail will emulate the Silver Comet Trail, highlighted in this video.
