Orlando Urban Trail

Pedestrian Trail

April, 2020 by mpreed62

Would definitely consider this more of a pedestrian trail and have rated it as such. It’s short, but does allow you to connect to areas off of Orange Ave and downtown if you want a spot to eat, etc.

Cady Way Trail

Urban Trail for Sure

April, 2020 by mpreed62

If you’re looking for a quick jaunt and don’t mind an abundance of stop signs, this will be a decent trail for you. The trail tends to be more crowded than others and is slightly narrower in some points. You are truly sharing your outdoor time w everyone: bikers, joggers, walkers, etc. There are better trails, but this can do in a pinch. The connector to Cross Seminole at Howell Branch and Aloma is a plus for a longer ride.

Flatwoods Park Trail

Amazing!

March, 2020 by n.caminero

We enjoyed this trail so much! So beautiful, serene and peaceful. Two mile mark from parking lot off of Bruce. B down has a water area which is great because going that far with children it’s nice to have a stop point where they can Reenergize. Great for all workouts ie cycling blading or roller skating and jogging due to smooth asphalt

West Orange Trail

West Orange Trail: One of the Best

March, 2020 by dahogan

Few trails offer the variety of scenery that the West Orange Trail provides. It breezes through tasteful urban, suburban and small-town vistas near Orlando. The trail is wide, clean, and well maintained. The West Orange Trail has something for everyone, with great restaurants in downtown Winter Garden, excellent trailheads, canopies of shade, and charming suburban neighborhoods.

Flatwoods Park Trail

Good trail but as far as you go in, you have to return to go out.

March, 2020 by pamelamay1117

This trail is 2 miles from my house and we ride our bikes there once or twice a week. The main trail is pavement which is well maintained and very flat (hence the name! You will see many distance cyclists flying through the park, training.) There are water stations every two miles that provide cold fresh water and some shelter from the sun. There are, also many, many off road trails to take. These trails can be challenging due to all the tree roots and the holes created by wild hogs on the sides of the trail. Sometimes the width of the trail is less than a foot. These off road trails definitely require a hybrid or mountain bike if riding. My opinion is that Flatwoods is best for cyclists, runners, or inline skates, not so much for walking. You have a 2 mile walk to get to the trail loop (which is 7 miles) and the scenery does not vary much throughout. Going off road is fun although difficult to enjoy your surrounding as you have to concentrate fully on navigating the path. Although I’m not a fan of walking the trail you will see all ages and abilities enjoying the trail on foot. Wildlife sightings have mostly consisted of birds although, near dusk and dawn you may see deer. We had an exciting encounter on an overcast day with 6 deer close to the path. We stopped and they crossed the path only several feet behind us. I took away one star on this path because of the sameness of the scenery and that once you go in there is no quick escape route if you tire. Proper walking shoes are a must as well as hat and sunscreen, and bring your cell phone in case of emergency.

Lake Wales Trailway

February, 2020 by dantonner

Beautiful trail and park. The town was very wise to preserve this area for everyone to share. There is a small section where there is no trail but you can ride on the road to connect to the rest of the trail but it is not marked

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

My favorite Florida rail-trail

February, 2020 by rim27

Rode the Van Fleet RT Feb 21-22, 2020. Combined with the semi-rural
Aburndale TECO trail the distance is 35.6 miles. If you like nature you'll
love the Van Fleet. Fully paved with mowed lawn on sides, then cypress
swamp and longleaf pine forests of the 322,690 acre Green Swamp Preserve. Saw a bobcat, a small snake and plenty of birds. From Park on
SR 33 in Polk City there's access to Aburndale trail going south and the
Van Fleet north. Parking at north end in Mabel take 121st Ave off route 50,
a 100yd long lumpy dirt road to nice parking area.

Flatwoods Park Trail

Great Place.

February, 2020 by jeffduma

Awesome place to ride any type of bicycle, walk or run. Safe place for families. Couple of places to stop and rest and get water. There is one bridge that is metal and can be slippery. Walk your bike a crossed it. Does cost $2.00 a day to park. Well maintained.

South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

Nice trail!

February, 2020 by bertrock

Very nice, wide trail with lots of beautiful views of the lakes. Also there are opportunities to go off the trail into the town of Clermont. Some reviewers commented about the hills... there are some decent hills for Florida on part of the trail, but they're not bad.
