General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Our first visit to this trail

January, 2021 by 8gfczrqgsp

We were very disappointed in our Jan 2021 visit to this nicely shaded and straight as an arrow trail. The surface is kinda bumpy where roots have caused the asphalt to rise making for an uncomfortable ride. Saw only 1 turtle and 1 rat snake. Had hoped for other wildlife so we found it pretty boring. The Withlahoochee remains our favorite!

Auburndale TECO Trail

Morning Ride

Easy ride. Trail is clean-has a few leaves & sticks. Easy to park & go to the trail.

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

Ride on December 18, 2020

December, 2020 by OldTerry

Experienced a bit of difficulty finding parking but eventually solved that problem. The trail is nice and the section my wife and I rode was scenic. In all honesty this trail is too urban for my tastes but I can see how it would appeal to locals for walking, running and recreational riding.

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

Favorite Daily Route

November, 2020 by b8vfp9dcym

I pick up the trail at Destination Parkway and go all the way up to Oak Ridge (3 miles total). It's well maintained, and really quite beautiful and peaceful. I incorporate these two sections into my daily ride and love it every time! The Destination Parkway to Sand Lakr road section is 1 mile along a canal setting. Lots of Sandhill Cranes to be seen, and some snakes (be careful, they're pretty venomous), but never any gators, which I have seen on the Sand Lake to Oak Ridge section (2 miles) in the lakes/ponds. This is a popular multi use trail, so be aware of people walking/running.

Great Trail. Watch out for crossing deer!

November, 2020 by jeknight2

Cycled the full trail North & South today for the first time:
Trail is extremely well maintained, with mileage markers, and water & restrooms at terminus points. Incredibly scenic. Tons of wildlife! Mostly shaded. Very courteous visitors when passing in both directions, and from behind.
Here's my main concern: Deer.
I was riding early on a Sat morning, on the trail from about 8:30 A.M. to 11:00 A.M.
I had TWO very close calls of deer leaping out of the forest, crossing directly in front of me. First incident was two deer about 40 yards ahead. They crossed, then two more turned around just as I passed the point of the first crossing. Second encounter was only about 10 feet in front of me! A true Yikes! moment. Had no time to react whatsoever, a large deer bounded out and across the trail. Luckily we didn't collide. I was riding about 18 mph, not overly fast (or slow). I'm curious if other cyclists have had similar encounters. Crashing hard on the trail would potentially be serious, since help may not arrive rapidly. Also passed about 10-12 other deer just off the trail. I'm wondering if there was some kind of herd movement today that explained so many deer sightings/encounters inside one single ride. Any additional experiences would be helpful, as I surely want to continue riding this otherwise wonderful cycling heaven trail.

good for rollerblading

September, 2020 by marisela.villeda.16

I come here every morning to run and rollerblade and it’s amazing. Although, it’s not long it is very good pavement to rollerblade!

Well Shaded, Abundant Wildlife

June, 2020 by trenner_tl

Enjoy a early morning ride through the Shingle Creek Preserve and Sanctuary. Well shaded and nice wide path. During my ride saw several species NOC birds, snake crossing my path,, alligator in the one of the many lakes. Path ends just North of Carol Street however the path is being extended over Osceola Parkway and will exited and additional 30 miles.

Kissimmee Trail Loop

Morning Ride

June, 2020 by trenner_tl

This morning I road the Northern Portion of the trail from N. Side of John Young Parkway to where the trail T off at Shingle Creek, The path isn't clearly marked however I met on of the Local which recommend the more scenic route. Please note that the official trail head go left (south) when you come to the T on the trail and then winds down under 192 and then East on the N Side of Kissimmee Airport to Central Blvd and then North Again. The trail on Central is mostly sidewall until you get 1/4 north of 192.

As I mentioned I went North and off the Kissimmee Trail which runs parallel to Shingle Creek Preserve . The path is mostly shaded and there is potential to see a variety of wildlife. According to the local I met he said that Kissimmee is in the process of extend the North Route over Osceola Parkway.

When the Path Y off before Osceola Parkway and I decided to Head South on West Carol Street and back to where I started on John Young Parkway. I am here visiting my daughter for the next few day therefore I will explore the Southern Route over the weekend and will post more.
