Seminole Wekiva Trail

Trail Map

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.

My girlfriend and I just rode this trail on 3/22/15. It was a hot day with temps in the upper 80's, and we were on our recumbent tadpole trikes. This is a great "hot weather" trail! Lots of shade, with only short sections in the full sun. The painted ...read more

I would have given it five stars if not for the frequent road crossings. I enjoyed the "Paint the trail" artwork so much I almost crashed when I first saw it...LOL. What a gem! read more
