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 have biked this trail several times, and I have always enjoyed it. I usually park either at the southern trailhead at San Sebastian Prado (off of SR 436), or at the shopping center area on the SE corner of HE Thomas Parkway and International Parkway. ...
If you want to get away from people. This trail is ****ing awesome! Don't listen to the guy that says it's hilly he's probably struggling to see his feet past his gut or something. This is Florida. IT'S FLAT AS ****. Unless you're on the verge of cardiac ...
This trail is VERY poorly maintained in the less traveled areas. As long as you only skate from the Softball complex to 46A in Sanford you will be ok. But venture beyond those points and all manners of debris will greet your skate wheels and turn your ...
