Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

very disjointed trail

June, 2022 by plalli_tl

The two parts of (the northern section of) this trail could not be more different. From Eagles Nest Park to Millenia is along busy roads, crossing streets, poorly paved, unmarked, and unmaintained. But then starting at Artegon, over to Sand Lake Rd and finally to the current end at Destination Pkwy, is absolutely beautiful. Quiet, serene, and meticulously well kept, with signage and trail markers a plenty. I hope Orlando or Orange County will consider improving the first half of this section as they also advance plans to create the next phase of the trail, connecting it to its other part in Kissimmee.

Lake Jackson Trail

Jackson Lake

April, 2022 by iammykl

This was a relatively flat sidewalk run that circumnavigates the lake. I started on Golfview Drive and went left. From here, you have the lake on your right and constant traffic on the left. Fortunately, there was a burst of rain as I started my run in the mid afternoon when it was really warm. At about three miles I was hot and needed to cool down. With the shore so close to me, I was seemingly deterred from approaching the shore because there were "private property" signs posted at every boat dock along the way. Nevertheless, this did not stop me from cooling off at the third mile.

I approached the clear water and made sure there were no dinosaur-type creatures lurking below before sticking my hand in the water. After dousing myself with cool water, I was able to carry on again. I am not a road runner and the concrete was a challenge for me as I was running in my Nike Terra Kigers. I walk a few times but this was primarily due to the heat. I didn't bring any water to drink and no calories to ingest. I pushed on, though. At the half way point, the lake is well behind giant houses with lavish exteriors and sprawling yards. This portion was rather delightful to see.

I saw a few runners going in the opposite direction and I waved. They waved in return. At the six mile point, I steered myself to a small beach and again doused myself with water. This was refreshing. Then I cruised again on the concrete pathway. At mile eight, the houses disappeared and the lake returned. The wind pushed against me and the sun burned my face, but I kept running. Up ahead, a street sign said, "Golfview Drive at next light." Hopeful, I pushed on. I reached the finish line, but realized it was about 9.8 miles, so I kept going until I got 10 miles. Time 1:39.

The trail is closed during the the work day Monday through Friday, at the South trailhead entrance. This would have been good information to know. Prior to riding my bicycle 7 miles to that trailhead, and just have to turn around.

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST)

Scenic water view

March, 2022 by kathidoran

My husband and I biked from Pahokee Campground towards Belle Grade, which was mostly paved, for a 15 mile round trip ride yesterday. Today we rode in the opposite direction to Port Mayaca for a 25 mile ride. That section is mostly dirt/gravel but well packed. Saw lots of wildlife, of course gators and many birds including eagles.

Hammock Road Trail

Nice Ride

March, 2022 by raymacke

The listed 3.7 miles is from the Hammock Park ranger station to the highway intersection. The shown map does not go all the way west. There is a $2 fee to continue west past the ranger station and into the park BUT the ride through it is outstanding. Not to be missed - be sure to stop at the Cypress Swamp trail and walk the boardwalk/catwalk over the swamp.

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

Relaxing Trail With Historical Value

February, 2022 by marklemoine

While traveling, my wife and I were Pleased to enjoy this entire trail. It features a shared space between a nature preserve and residential area. Trail head also includes a visitor center that was an enjoyable stop as well, learning about the environmental and cultural history of the area. The most exciting aspect was to learn that we were biking along a watershed that is the start of the Everglades.

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST)

Nice while it lasts, one major problem

February, 2022 by stewl

We enjoyed a ride at the northern end on a sunny day in February. We started at Lake Okeechobee Park heading clockwise (east). WARNING- just about a mile east of the park the trail stops at Taylor Creek. You have to ride to the busy road and cross the creek on a short bridge with no shoulder. If you aren’t used to riding in traffic you won’t like it. Then getting back on the trail requires going down a road with no trespassing signs. On our return trip the road was closed with a locked gate and we had to walk around it over some rough terrain to get out. From the park you have 24 miles of beautiful trail along the levee with views of lake and canal till that segment ends. But I don’t understand how a bike trial can have such difficult access issues.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Revisit

January, 2022 by jmk355

I rode this trail and reviewed it 5 yrs ago when I was last in the area. Rented another bike from Evolve bikes in Celebration (recommend highly) and revisited the trail. Colder than before (low 60s) I did not spot any alligators, but a handful of turtles as well as chickens and other fowl at Kermit's Way (mm 13 or so) filled the void.
Another enjoyable trip although the surface conditions have deteriorated in areas-mostly toward the southern end where a number of potholes have been filled with patch materials, but are too rough to ride over smoothly. Hopefully a resurfacing will occur soon as the trail offers a great ride.
