The Little Econ Greenway trail is just one section of the Orlando area's many fine trails. features riverside recreation, picnicking, wildlife watching, and canoe trails. It also features a canal system that you can paddle along. Whether on land or water, you can watch for wildlife, including osprey, red-shouldered hawks, turtles and alligators. In addition, the butterfly garden along the trail is a delight.
The trail will eventually link to the University of Central Florida and continue north to the Cross Seminole Trail
system through the city of Oviedo and back to Blanchard Park. There are also plans to extend the western terminus of the Little Econ Greenway to the Cady Way Trail
at Lake Baldwin.
Parking is available at several places along the trail, including Jay Blanchard Park, Econ Soccer Complex, Arcadia Acres, and on Harrel Road just north of Colonial Drive. There is also a paved trailhead on the north side of SR 50, just east of Goldenrod Road.
