Seminole Wekiva Trail

Description Suggest an Edit

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.

Too many road crossings. Road bike maniacs riding way too fast! Nice shaded trail however. Pay attention to signs. We missed 2 signs and ended up in the wrong places. Murals were the absolutely the best!! I guess if you live in mouse land it might be ...read more
