Welcome to the “Treasures of the Trails” WordPress site!


We now have two “Treasures of the Trails” guides – one for hiking, biking and birding trails of Citrus County and the other for the amazing paddling trails in and around it.

  • A Guide for Paddling Aficionados by author Matt Clemons with co-authors Max Schulman and Tom Craig, Jr.   Craig also served design and graphics artist.  This guide presents the things a paddler needs to know (and remember) before they put in on the through paddling trails of the Withlacoochee Basin and Gulf of Mexico.  The ecotourism paddling trails of the Withlacoochee Basin, the Gulf of Mexico, the Tsala Apopka Lake Chain, the Florida Barge Canal and Lake Rousseau are also covered in depth.
  • A Guide for Trail Novices and Aficionados by author Max Schulman with book design and graphic art by Tom Craig.   This book showcases the little known hiking, biking and birding trails of Citrus County, Florida.   It is specifically written for novice hikers and bicyclists and is most helpful to those who are not familiar with Citrus County or Florida’s Nature Coast.

The CD found inside both books contains over 1000 beautiful photos taken at every location in these easy to use guides.
