Cady Way Trail

This is a great trail

July, 2019 by rob158

Ive read some of the other reviews and as for me?...Orlando and Orange County are doing great with getting trails in place. Seminole County should learn from them. This trail is pretty awesome if you live nearby you can jump on and off and get just about anything you want if you know the area. If you just visiting stay in Baldwin Park and enjoy all they have to offer.

Fort Fraser Trail

my 'home' trail

July, 2019 by antler.eh

This is a trail that I ride 2-3 times a week. A lot of times we will park on the south end at a Pizza Hut off of Rt 60 just a little west of the trail. It makes for a nice place to have lunch after our ride. The trail is nice, but is getting some rough areas that need to be repaired. There is a bike store on the west side of 98 that has a Saturday morning group ride at 7:30 that uses the trail, so, sometimes a bit of congestion. A lot of nature along the way, especially if you have an off-road bike, you can take a 1/2 mile paved spur that leads to the Circle B Bar Preserve. Beware, there are alligators in THEIR natural habitat.

Auburndale TECO Trail

A nice, easy trail.

April, 2019 by jimheckel

This trail is very peaceful and easy to walk. Mile markers every half mile (though some are obliterated), potable water on both ends of the trail, and a bathroom on the south end. I recommend bringing a cap, sunscreen, sunglasses, bug spray, and a water bottle; you will need them. It takes me about five hours to walk the whole thing, round trip. The only fly in the ointment is that there's a lot of really trashy yards near the trail - mostly old cars and buses that have been sitting and rusting for a long time. I even saw a few cars from the 1950s that have apparently been rotting for decades! That's made up for by the beautiful scenery.

In a nutshell: I recommend this trail for a beginner. It's in a straight line. so you can't get lost, and it's close to civilization besides. It's a good way to see rural Florida, but close enough to civilization so that bears and crocodiles are not a problem.

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

First Bike Trail

March, 2019 by john.matthew.crane

First bike trail I’ve ridden since moving to Florida. I really enjoyed this one. Goes past the Kissimmee Historic Society, & it’s a very scenic ride.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Nice ride along the trail. Especially along the wildlife management areas

March, 2019 by jduffy3124

We started at the south at the Polk City trailhead and traveled north. The trail quickly goes into rural and then mostly wild surroundings on both sides of the trail. Looking at the maps, you can see the wildlife management area, but the same type of flora is found earlier in along the trail. A few houses, and views over farming on the east side of the trail.

Make sure to go far enough to get to 'The Bridges' which are near Withla on Google Maps. We saw alligators, snakes and hawks, and a lot of other birds and lizards.

South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

Poor signage; wimpy "hills"

March, 2019 by timbee205

At several points along the way the trail split--but no signs. They have some nice kiosks but with no maps just a bunch of stuff about plants, etc. Nice but I need to have better directions--not just guessing or following other people. The "hills"aren't much but still a little variety from most of FLs flat trails, even with crampy legs the "hills" weren't much challenge.

The new western segment from Hiawatha Park about 3 miles out was very nice; hope they extend it beyond the little bike cul de sac. Overall a nice trail, except for lots of road crossings and lack of signage.

Auburndale TECO Trail

Trail is great. Bathrooms are horrible!

March, 2019 by tomargaret

We have done the Auburndale Trail many times. The trail itself is fine and well maintained, however, the bathrooms are a disgrace! Many times in the past it would be out of toilet paper or slightly dirty. We overlooked these shortcomings, thinking we were just catching it on an off day. Today it was so horrible I felt I had to say something. I also have photos to prove my point but I haven't figured out where to post them yet. The women's toilet was so backed up it was disgusting to even look at. There was toilet paper and trash all over the floor. The men's bathroom didn't have the same extreme problem, but was totally out of toilet paper. A better job needs to be done.

Flatwoods Park Trail

Around and back

March, 2019 by NormR

This loop trail is a great ride and allows for viewing natural surroundings. My wife and I started at the park headquarters where we paid our $2 parking fee and used the restrooms. The loop is plenty wide enough to accommodate slower, casual riders such as our selves while allowing more serious riders (and skaters) to pass. We took the 2 mile extension to the other park entrance where more facilities and refreshment is available. The main path was under water, but a foot bridge has been constructed to get over it.
If one were to ride this repeatedly, it might get a little boring I suspect. But for a couple of northerners escaping the cold, it was a little taste of heaven.
Just up the road from the park is the development of Cross Creek with lots of good places to eat.

Lake Jackson Trail

Not a trail

March, 2019 by flyback710

Be careful riding this. It is all residential sidewalk. Lots of little obstacles.

Lake Jackson Trail

A series of driveway crossings

March, 2019 by flmark

This is a HORRIBLE trail. In fact, ‘Trail’ is a misnomer. About a third of this ‘trail’ is okay. For the rest of it, you are either paralleling an extremely busy state highway or traversing what is best described as an endless sea of driveway crossings. And all those driveway crossings mean that all you see are houses IN FRONT OF THE LAKE!!! If you want to actually bike around a lake, while actually seeing that lake, head north to Lake Wales. You can do the short trail that is shown here on trailLink, as well as the path that goes about half way around the lake, which is not shown here. I can't overstate how much I hated this 'trail'.

Orlando Urban Trail

Come And Enjoy this Urban Trail And Stops along the way!

February, 2019 by luisalberto_25

Enjoyed my recent ride on this trail. Even though it’s a short trail, there are plenty of spots to simply appreciate the simple beauty of Orlando. Plenty of places to stop for water, and a bite to eat as it will runs parallel and into a grouping of restaurants, grocery chain, and YES a Winery!!! For your next stop be camera ready for many pics or selfies on the bridge over lake Formosa -AMAZING SUNSETS. Be sure to ride around the Science Center too. And follow the trail through a neighborhood by the lake and reach Mead Garden Park! Very Relaxed Very Easy Very Fun Fun Note: for longer rides you can easily connect to Baldwin Park Loop, Cady Way Trail or Maitland Bike Trail

Gaston Edwards Trail

Look at the Map

February, 2019 by yipyipyip27

I decided to bring my dog here after reading the description. It was a nice little walk, however there is no clear start and stop to the trail. It just dead ends at an apartment complex and at a crosswalk. The parking lot is right in the middle of the trail too so we walked to the left, found the dead end and I was confused thinking it must continue somewhere else and we ended up walking through a business center. So we turned around, passed the car, and reached another dead end at the apartment complex. Now looking at the map I realize the trail is actually structured that way, which I find strange. I wish I had looked at the map previously and I would have chosen a more direct walking trail. My dog had fun and we still got our exercise in so the trail served its purpose, just wished I hadn’t been so confused.
