Cady Way Trail

Hardly Worth it

January, 2018 by buffettbike

My wife and I rode the trail round trip on January 20, 2018. We started at the fashion Square Mall. Construction (no doubt temporary) has destroyed the trail start and parking lot near the post office. We had to ride around the block and intercept the trail where it intersects Maguire. No big deal, but an annoyance nonetheless. The only worthwhile aspect of the next segment of the trail was the the fact that you could connect to a very nice trail that runs around Lake Baldwin and passes the community's downtown area as you circle the lake. The rest of the trail itself up to the big bridge overpass is quite forgettable. From the big overpass to the end of the trail is not even worth riding. Near the end of the trail there is an overlook at Perch Lake. The overlook was populated with a bunch of seedy looking people, although they seemed not to pay any attention to us on bikes. This trail gets one star for just there actually being a trail there and the other star for the access to the Lake Baldwin trail.

West Orange Trail

Winter Garden Trail Portion

January, 2018 by vidman10

An earlier review suggest that the Winter Garden portion of the trail prevented 5 stars. Sad, as the small town has an excellent historic museum, interesting train museum, excellent and tasty restaurants. Slow down, stop and smell the roses. Biking is not only an adventure, it is meant to be enjoyed as well.

General James A. Van Fleet State Trail

What a big surprise

November, 2017 by gregride

I was in Orlando FL area for the Thanksgiving Holiday week. So I decide to bring my bike and ride some of the trails in the area. I started with the Van Fleet and boy what a surprise I got. The trail was well maintain and had bike repair stations about every 2 to 3 miles. The restroom was super clean , well the one I use at the Green pond road trail head. There was Park Rangers on duty, That's a big plus. I talk to a lot of friendly people on the trail. This trail is straight and flat. Makes for some good tempo and SST rides. I rode the trail all week and did not bother trying out the other trails.

Wonderful paved trail through neighborhoods, nature, & historic old small towns. Lots to do on trail and offers more than others. Would ride again !

Flatwoods Park Trail

Flatwoods Park Trail

November, 2017 by debbie.porte

A wonderful Sunday morning trail.
The 7 mile multi-use loop lives up to its name. I always prefer a loop. It's so nice to be able to park, cycle and return to the vehicle without having to turnaround.
This is a wonderful paved flat trail surrounded by wonderful Florida wildlife. Rest and water stations are plentiful.
This trail now has automated parking meters that can accept credit/debit cards as well as cash. $2 for the day includes all Hillsborough County Parks.

Little Econ Greenway

Fun dirt/sand trail

October, 2017 by rstotts37

Trail difficulty is intermediate, but if you just want to take it easy, you can stick to the wide service trails. Definitely would recommend as it has great scenery with some wildlife.

Flatwoods Park Trail

Flatwoods Trail...a winner

October, 2017 by coconutbay

Drove from I-75 and turned east on Bruce B. Downs Blvd, driving less than a mile before turning right (south) into the entrance. Trail head has restrooms and a Pepsi machine. We enjoyed the very smooth asphalt surface and the scenery -lots of the "old Florida" with palmettos and native trees. Saw a 6' alligator off to the side. Friendly bicyclists passed us (we're on recumbent trikes) and we passed walkers and a skater.

A quick shower hit us at the best time, as we were only a few feet from a shelter. Nice to have a place to hang out.

INSIDER INFO:
1) 11 mile trip if you use the Bruce B. Downs entrance. 7 miles if you use the Morris Bridge road entrance. Plan accordingly!
2) After riding there are several places to grab a fast food lunch (ChickFila, etc) and a Walgreens to visit if you stop and happen to adjust your bike seat on an ant bed like me.

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL)

Excelente trail

September, 2017 by mcuevas.bast

Es una pista corta pero suficiente para hacer un circuito de 5 km ida y vuelta. Excelente opción para correr alrededor de las 7 a 9 am, hay sombra casi todo el recorrido. Nos encontramos conejos, garzas y pavo reales.

Great bike trail! Beautiful ride around lake in the town of Clermont. Nice challenge heading east with lots of rolling hills. Great work out and great scenery! Connects to West Orange Trail so you can ride for miles and miles. Fast or slow it is a very fun and enjoyable ride. One if the best around!

West Orange Trail

The trail is beautiful! Great for all types of riders. Family friendly to serious riders. Short or long rides the trail is the perfect place for exercise. I love the casual rides with my family. Also, love the long rides on my road bike for serious but fun workouts. Beautiful scenery to enjoy all throughout trail. One of the best bike trails in the region.
