The Making of Miccosukee Road 2: A Scenic View Down Miccosukee Road

Miccosukee Road is one of the roads I regularly travel, and it’s always a beautiful drive. It is one of my favorite local roads.

In the early spring, the new growth emerges on the tree limbs that make up Miccosukee Road’s tree canopy. This new growth, and the waning pollen season, marks the most diverse colors of the canopy for the year, with various greens and yellows appearing.

While driving, I noted several areas that caught my eye, including this scenic view down a lengthy stretch of Miccosukee Road. One day, I parked and walked precariously along the narrow shoulder to photograph the sections of the road I had noted, keeping an eye out for traffic.

In the final image, Miccosukee Road stretches on beneath the tree canopy, vibrant with the new growth of early spring, before it seemingly vanishes into the trees. View more Florida landscape photography.

Miccosukee Road, One of the Canopy Roads in Tallahassee, Florida

Miccosukee Road is one of the officially designated canopy roads in Tallahassee, Florida. It runs northeast/southwest from North Meridian Road by East Tennessee Street/Highway 90 near downtown Tallahassee to Moccasin Gap Road/Highway 142 in the historic community of Miccosukee, Florida.

Miccosukee Road is paved and more highly-traveled than the unpaved canopy roads. Despite the road being paved, there are still high clay banks in places, a testament to the road’s history. Some places have a ditch on the side of the road for water mitigation. There are no emergency lanes; the road and the shoulder are fairly narrow in places.

From Fleischmann Road all the way to Crump Road, the Miccosukee Greenway parallels Miccosukee Road. The Miccosukee Greenway has a footpath/bike trail/horseback riding trail along its length. The trail crosses Miccosukee Road several times.

Miccosukee Road was originally a Native American footpath and eventually became a route for plantations in the area to transport their cotton to market.
