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!

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

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.

My favorite Central Florida Trail

May, 2020 by jamessimmons1006

There are several decent trails in this area, Cady Way, West Orange, etc but my favorite is the Van Fleet Trail. I know many find it to be a boring trail but I like the fact that it is never crazy crowded and hardly has any intersections so you can just ride and not have to worry about stopping all the time like West Orange. Combine this with the Auburndale Trail and round trip you can get around 72 miles in. Lots of critters to see as well. Deer, armadillos, snakes, raccoons, turtles owls, etc! Great to just put on head phones and ride!!

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST)

High marks for Lake "O" Trail

April, 2020 by thom11187

Parked at the Port Mayaca lock area right off of 441 S. and easily got right on the trail and headed north. Did the 14 miles mentioned in the reviews and it was great--no construction in that area. Well paved path, beautiful scenery on either side, the lake is majestic! Passed 6-7 other bikers over the course of 2 hours, so not well traveled on a weekday or maybe it's the Covid crisis? I plan to go further next time or head south from there and see where that leads. Only reason I can't give it 5 stars is because there are no bathrooms or real shaded areas at all during that stretch so be prepared for that--we had perfect weather, not terribly hot. Maybe it changes in different areas depending on where you are on the lake, if so I'd like to hear about it.
