I came cycling from Downtown Orlando to here and I really enjoyed. Great atmosphere.
We rode the northernmost part of the trail. We parked at Barkley Dog Park in DeLand, which has bathrooms and is relatively close to the start of the trail. We rode north all the way to DeLeon Spring. The entrance to the Spring is about a mile from the end of the bike trail but is easy to access. $2 per bike to get in to the park, but it’s worth it to take a dip and cool off before heading back. Looking forward to doing other legs of the trail. 16 mile round trip!
This past Friday I had t he pleasure of riding The West Orange Trail. We parked and entered the Trail at the Killarney Station. We rode through Oakland, through Winter Garden, and a few miles further, we turned and headed back to Winter Garden, for lunch. Along our route we not only saw older historic buildings, but beautiful homes, natural wildlife habitats, as well as the very nice Butterfly Garden. We saw a chicken crossing, where the local rooster was doing just that, checking on all the chicks in the area, crossing from one side of the road to the other. The Oakland Park was picturesque. And we even passed a walking/hiking point, though we opted in the heat of Summer to keep riding past... Definitely a family friendly trail, as we ventured past playgrounds, as well as families on their bikes, and/or walking. Runners, and cyclists alike met us on our “Cruisin’” journey. Round trip we did 22.38 miles, and still did not see everything. We will be back.... nicely done!
We started the trail at the Apopka end. There was no parking so we had to park at the nearby Publix which has good restrooms. The ride was mostly shaded with a cool overpass bridge but there were some questionable areas and apparently homeless individuals on the trail. The other end of the trail near the Killearny Station was much nicer. There’s a nice bike rental shop at that end. If you can handle the 800+ feet which included rolling hills, the South Lake trail was much more interesting.
There’s lots of animals and pretty houses and yards and plant life. It’s all a good destruction from my quads on absolute fire haha
Started at Johns young and went south. No good mostly sidewalks. Turned back to go north and after about 1 mike of trail it turned back to sidewalks . Not well marked. I would not recommend this trail at all
This ride never gets old for me. On the west side of the ride are the towns of Oakland and Winter Garden which have made the Trail a feature of their downtown areas. On the north are the moderate challenges of slow slopes heading into Apopka. A great reward for the ride is found at the restaurants of the Plant Street Market and the beer of Crooked Can inside. It can get busy with pedestrians, especially on weekends, but the ride is well worth it.
We parked our car at Harry T. & Harriette V. Moore Memorial Park which has facilities. We left the park and turned right on a Parker Avenue to pick up the Greenway Bike Trail. What a beautiful ride. We saw a couple turtles, butterflies and other bicycle enthusiasts enjoying the peaceful, natural setting. Glad I support Rails to Trails. Agi & Ray
Love this trail!
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.
Really nice trail for a casual bike ride. Wide path, mostly covered by trees so you’re in the shade. Felt very safe on this trail, as a female. I’m giving this 4 stars because it’s not ideal for road biking. There are many intersections, so a lot of stopping and checking for traffic.
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.
