I was happily surprised to see a new section of this trail open, south of Oak Ride. There’s a good length that you can travel south all the way to Sand Lake Road. Beware a section that is being repaired just north of LB McLeod … but it’s possible to walk your bike past in the travel lane when clear. I do wish there was more signage overall
Rode with 9 other recumbent rides (CRABS) on a beautiful day, starting in Winter Garden to the Horse Park near Apopka, returning to WG, then on to Killarney Station & back to WG for a nice 30+ mile ride. Beat the rain as well.
Besides a deluge of Biblical proportions during our ride, the trail was awesome. Some street curb cuts to negotiate but plenty of shade and plenty of places to get out of the rain, unless you are a ways away. Its Florida, its warm, so getting rained on is not the worst thing in the world when you are hot. Winter Garden is an awesome place to get your lunch or dinner after your ride. Lots of places to part to take your bike on and off the car. The various stations around the trail are also clean and have helpful Staff. Love this trail.
When we Winter in the Beautiful State of Florida we try and get to this great trail every year!
Rode out and back about 50 miles from the Edgewater Rotary Park towards Titusville. The trail is in near perfect condition with only a few minor surface bumps within the first few miles. This is a great trail for training as it really opens up after the first 1/2 dozen miles or so and you can really roll if you like. The scenery is also pretty good too. No services other than an “honor” station so take what you need unless you’re going all the way to Titusville.
This trail now extends to the Spring to Spring trail at Lake Monroe Park. If you go East to Mellonville road then south on the road to route 25, you will find a sidewalk bike trail east to hwy 415. The on the West side of 415 another sidewalk trail extends into a full blown double lane trail at Celery avenue up to Osteen connected to the Rail to Rail trail. Head West and connect to the Spring to Spring south trail back to Lake Monroe Park. Roundtrip is about 30 miles around lake Monroe. Stops at Green Springs park, Gemini Springs park, Debary Hall, and Beck Ranch park.
This is one of the most naturally beautiful segments of trail in the area. That said, there are many segments that are not complete yet, and there are many segments that are showing their age, with treacherous rough surfaces, cracked pavement, potholes. The whole area could use some love, but it’s so beautiful. Better suited to walking/jogging than cycling simply because it’s twisty and worn out in places.
This trail now runs all the way to the county line, across the St John’s River at 17-92 and connects to the Spring to Spring trail. It is possible to begin in downtown Sanford, followed the trail west and head north across the Saint John, Loop back east and follow the trail to Osteen, and on to Edgewater or Titusville, if you’re feeling adventurous, or head south at 415 in Osteen and back across the river. You will have to follow Celery Ave for two miles, to Melonville, But it is a roughly 26 mile loop around the lake with 24 on dedicated trail.
Fantastic place for a bicycle, beautiful scenery ! Will go back many times
Beautiful riverwalk, now extended all the way to the Sanford Zoo. Plenty of seating and scenic views. My favorite place to run!
Great ride for seeing wildlife. I’ve seen bobcats, alligators, panthers, turtles, birds, snakes, and more. The magnolia Park trailhead is closed but you can access the trail at the McDonald Canal or Green Mountain trailheads. Must use mountain bike as trail is mostly gravel. There are a few lookouts you can climb to get a better view of the area. There’s also quite a few covered benches along the way.
I ride this trail frequently. It’s a little congested by Victory Park (by the lake) with walkers and joggers, but keep going and it thins out dramatically. Nice, pretty, almost flat ride. A lot of the trail is through woods with limited houses along the way.
