South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

Great Trail

June, 2020 by apostell17

It’s a really nice trail to ride pretty much anytime. I love and ride a few times a week.

Lake Baldwin Trail

Great trail -make ride longer starting at Blue Jacket Park

May, 2020 by rhondarfitzgerald71

We did this ride on a Sunday morning at about 8:30am. It wasn’t super busy, nor too hot yet. We started by parking at Blue Jacket Park and riding over to Lake Baldwin Park. We rode around Lake Baldwin twice and then rode back to our parking spot. The starting point change gave us an extra mile round trip! Plenty of shade near the lake and some spots were a little higher to climb (I was riding a cruiser with no gears ¿¿). We will do this one again.

Little Econ Greenway

great place

May, 2020 by icidrosalgado

Grew up going to Blanchard park but finally did the trail. Very scenic near the river but there is parts where you are behind peoples houses and the river becomes a small ditch. For a more scenic view recommend starting from the parking next to the dealership and head East n finish at the end of Blanchard park.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

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!!

South Lake and Lake Minneola Scenic Trail

awesome

May, 2020 by luantorres42

My favorite park

Hardy Trail

wonderful shorter trail through downtown Dade City

May, 2020 by suesuemo

My sister in law and I decided to go for a walk on this trail. Not knowing where to expect we were very pleasant surprised. The pathway is pretty shaded and certainly wide enough to do social distancing. There is an abundance of beautiful flora and even some fauna- an armadillo walked out in front of us, spotted a beautiful red cardinal, a large red tail hawk and quite an abundance of butterflies. Some people walking, some biking but definitely not overly populated. One feels as if they’re “out in the country” while being right in town. Would highly recommend this if you’re looking for a shorter walk

Cady Way Trail

nice trail

May, 2020 by julie443

Really nice trail with lots of benches and water fountains. You do have to cross busy traffic sometimes.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

Rural landscape and easy ride

April, 2020 by dahogan

I took my first ride this week on the Van Fleet Trail. This trail is straight as an arrow and flat, so it’s an easy ride for all skill levels. The trail is in excellent shape and well marked. There’s plenty of shade. Whether a plus or a minus depends on the rider, but the Van Vleet Trail is very rural and quiet, without a lot of traffic. The scenery is pretty but doesn’t change much along the way. After a few miles, I found the trail a bit boring.

Gertrude's Walk

Gertrude’s Walk- short walk

April, 2020 by mslason

Short walk around Lk beauty nestled in the complex around ORMC hospital, Arnold Palmer & Winnie Palmer Hospital. Looking for a way to relieve stress while visiting loved ones in the hospital? This is for you!

West Orange Trail

Nice Ride, Good Challenge, Great Place/People

April, 2020 by cocomeji1_tl

Some of those inclines were pretty strenuous for someone who primarily bikes on flat land (me) but I loved it! Great views, clear paths, decent amount of water fountains along the way so I enjoyed it. I did this trail in two trips, both times I started at Kilarney and went to the end and back of each way. Heading into Clermont was definitely a lot more challenging but it was still a great ride.

Pine Hills Trail

Practical and leads to Park

April, 2020 by autroncoso

The trail is a practical way to get around the neighborhood. The trail also forks and leads to Barnett Park, one of the most scenic and biggest parks in the county, offering many amenities and activities.
Counting the park, the trail is of good length, well kept, has some markers and little to no interruption from two of its three ends.

Chain of Lakes Trail

Nice trail

April, 2020 by jrwebhosting
