Running along the former line of the Orange Belt Railway, the Seminole-Wekiva Trail offers a peaceful alternative to the busy streets of Altamonte Springs. This popular, well-marked, 14-mile route is one of Seminole County's showcase trails.
From Altamonte Springs the trail begins across a pleasant wooden bridge at the San Sebastian Prado trailhead. The first 7 miles traverse quiet residential neighborhoods and lush woods. Draped with Spanish moss, the tree canopy provides welcome shade. Two miles in you'll reach the ball fields and open park space of the Seminole County Softball Complex.
North of Mile Marker 7 the mood shifts from rural relaxation to suburban bustle. Over the next 3 miles, you'll skirt the International Parkway business corridor, weaving amid modern office buildings and shopping centers with ample food, water and restroom options. Just past Mile Marker 9, a spur trail on the right leads east to a pedestrian bridge over I-4 before joining the Cross-Seminole Trail
The final 4 miles of the Seminole-Wekiva mirror the peaceful wooded areas that began the trail. At trail's end, the Markham Road trailhead offers ample parking and restroom facilities.
To reach the San Sebastian Prado trailhead, take I-4 to Exit 92 and drive west about 1.5 miles on Route 436/Semoran Boulevard. The well-marked trailhead is on the north side of the boulevard.
To reach the Markham Road trailhead, take I-4 to Exit 101 and head west on Route 46A. Turn right on Orange Boulevard then left on Markham. The marked trailhead is on the left.
Parking is available at both trailheads.

I really like the laid back feel of this suburban, surprisingly scenic trail. There are still a few areas with thin woods and wetlands, with many songbirds and waterfowl. As for the black bear, he is most likely the unfortunate product of a vanishing ...
We saw a big black bear on this trail this Sunday at 3:30 pm Daylight. It was coming from the bushes. It was the scariest thing.
We turned around got off the trail and rode the rest of the way on Markim woods road which has cars on it and runs parallel ...
This trail is great! Paved through out. The traffic stops are a little annoying and will slow down your time so don't ride it thinking you will set a land speed record. It is very scenic. Be careful not to miss the connection at 46a. I thought the trail ...
