Relaxing and easy to walk!

Parked on the end where the dog park is so that was a plus! Super easy walk… will definitely be back.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Very nice trail could use some maintenance, but it's still great for a road bike. Much better than most roads in Florida.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Very well maintained trail. Some maintenance needed but it's better than being on the road

Auburndale TECO Trail

Only good for adding miles to the General Van Fleet Trail

January, 2023 by malarkeycontainer

Unlike the wonderful General Van Fleet Trail, I don't know how this trail rates a 5 other than as a way for extreme enthusiasts to add mileage. Even so, turning around and doing another lap would be better!
Started from the Polk City trailhead that serves both the General Van Fleet Trail going north and the Aurburndale trail going south. just an FYI, the initial trailhead is signed as Polk City Trail. Aurburndale-Teco signage doesn't start for 2 or 3 miles to the south. Be ready for the first 4 miles to follow a massive power-line right-of-way out in the full sun. The trail is not pretty to say the least as it goes underneath busy I-4.
Granted the last 2 miles are quite pleasant as others have described. Trees, shade, massive athletic field complexes. Just not worth the ride to get there.



South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

Safe, paved and scenic

January, 2023 by diastole

After reading the reviews of this trail we decided to get in the car and drive from Vero Beach. We wanted to stay overnight to get in 2 days of biking and to make up for the 2 hours of driving on the crowded, dangerous highways.

We found the Killarney Station parking area easily enough on my iPhone maps. The park had a bike shop, clean bathrooms and a picnic area to eat our lunch before hitting the trail. We road west towards Clermont. The trail had rolling small hills, was in great shape, a few major but manageable major street crossings but didn’t have continuous good directions. I was able to use my phone map to keep me heading in the direction of west through Lake Minneola and onto Clermont. Eventually a directional sign will pop up to reassure your going the right way.

This trail is definitely worth the trip. We were able to get in 22 miles round trip. We were hoping to stay over and ride the next day in the opposite direction through Winter Garden but all the hotels were sold out for the evening so we drove there instead, had a lovely dinner and walk around the town before driving back to Vero. Kudos to Clermont and Lake Minneola for saving the lake views for this beautiful trail instead of allowing developers to stack homes along its banks. We will be back! (4 stars.. please add a few more directional signs and I will give it 5)

Auburndale TECO Trail

Great rural ride

January, 2023 by dan263

Landed at a nice parking area and rode along a vast athletic complex with at least a dozen soccer/lax fields. Continuing on the ride became more rural along a large power line. Get in before sunset as the bugs come out quickly!

Lake Apopka Loop Trail

rough ride

January, 2023 by muep6qdkrv

We were on recumbent trikes and this trail beat us to death. It’s a stretch to call it crushed stone and there was no asphalt that we saw. It is a rough gravel road.

Lake Apopka Loop Trail

rough ride

This trail isn’t crushed stone or asphalt. It’s a rough gravel road. We were on recumbent trikes and it beat to death. Wish we could have seen all the wildlife that we were told Is on this trail.

Lake Apopka Loop Trail

Really rough ride

January, 2023 by jayj8967

We tried to ride this trail in several places. It is more like a gravel road than crushed stone. We ride recumbent tricycles and it was just too rough for us. We had been told by many of lots of wildlife on the trail. Really looking forward to seeing that. Just not a trail for us.

Lake Apopka Loop Trail

rough ride

January, 2023 by muep6qdkrv

We found no part of this trail that was paved. It was a gravel road at best. We ride recumbent trikes and this trail beat us to death. Maybe, if you’re younger, or don’t mind being bounced around you’ll be fine. We were looking forward to seeing all the wildlife people talked about. It was just to rough for us.
