The Fort Cooper Seminole Heritage Trail is a project of The Friends of Fort Cooper, with the financial assistance from the Friends of Florida Parks, Inc. 

The goal of the Trail is to significantly increase the educational component of the Seminole Indian history related to out local area by establishing a series of interpretive stations located throughout Fort Cooper State Park 


The Fort Cooper Seminole Heritage Trail outlines Florida Seminole lifestyle and culture in the Cove of the Withlacoochee Region. It consists of a series of environmentally friendly and durable interpretive stations that include multiple kiosks and signs strategically located throughout the Park along currently maintained pathways. Visitors will be able to study a single panel to learn a segment of Seminole history or upon completing the entire trail will gain an extensive overview of Seminole life.  As the trail nears the Fort Site it includes information about Treaties, Indian warriors, chiefs and leaders of the Second Seminole War (1835-1842).
