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.

Noisy trail

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 more

Great scenery, light rollings hills!!! Traffic no problem!!!

Having rode on the Cross Seminole Trail (CST) for the past few months, and the Cady Way Trail for the past month, I finally decided to check out the Wekiva Trail at length. My first attempt on the Wekiva led me to the trailhead off International Blvd. more

Great trail for sure!

My fav trail so far. nice pavement for road bike or hybrid bikes, mostly shaded with trees and you will enjoy the murals along the way. We go to Panera bread for breakfast and go back so its about 15.7 round trip. Love it! read more
