First time on the trail we started at the Croom area. Restrooms were well-maintained and we saw the deputy sheriff twice. I look forward to riding the complete 46 mile trail. Thank you everyone for taking great care of this trail.
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.
Beautiful trail. I did this with my son October 2020. Pretty much a straight run from st pete to Tampa. It runs along the side of a highway but zero danger. It’s separated by a shoulder and landscaping. You pass a few beaches along the way. There are a few bridges. Constant breeze through the ride over Tampa bay. Highly recommended.
This is our sixth trail that we have tried. Very smooth. Well marked mile markers. Not a lot of scenery. We went on a beautiful Monday in June. In the six mile trip we passed about 15 people. The people seemed very friendly. Much more so than other trails we’ve tried. Do not make a special long trip for this path. It would be a great trail if you’re in the area or live locally. As far as nature we saw lots of birds and four snakes. Harmless black snakes. Bathrooms were not plentiful and very dirty. No trash anywhere on the trail.
This is a wonderful trail just to see how far you can go. It’s 20+ miles of straightaway. The people are friendly and courteous as well. Minor animal spotting like gopher turtles and random non-venomous snakes.
We are 70ish and rode this trail on our ebikes. We RV and try to do a couple trails a week normally in the 25 to 30 mile range. We parked in Ben Carson Park. Paid parking about 50 cents an hour paid at a kiosk with credit card or change. We arrived at 0900 on Memorial Day and there was plenty of parking. We got back at noon and all the parking spots were taken and entrances were blocked. My advice would be to park at a park in Safety Harbor and bike that trail down to this trail. This will be one of our favorite trails and we will return. reason for us to take out a subscription
There is only parking for 3 cars at best and it's just grass but not really a parking lot. There is one good spot and 2 that are a little sketchy. Beautiful trail with lots of shade here.
The West Orange Trail is now my home trail since I've retired. It's a safe, easy, and non-demanding trail with tons of scenery, lots of trees, and many convenient stops. Downtown Winter Garden is awesome. A few busier than desired street crossings interfere with the ride, but nothing too involved. The worst part of the trail are the wanna-be pro riders that zoom past you without any 'On Your Left' warnings. Kinda rude, but nothing to keep you from enjoying your ride.
I have been on several different parts of this trail and love them all!
Great ride through Duneden on the trail especially to honeymoon Island very well-kept trail plus mountain biking sandy areas on the island as well Stop at the island café and sit and look out at the water well relaxing with some water and refreshments. If you need to rinse there’s beach showers and beach access all over the island. Awesome place to bike ride
The Magnolia Park Trailhead off Binion Road is currently closed and is torn up due to construction so you will be redirected to Lust Road. It’s a shame because it cuts off some scenic mileage - hopefully they’ll be done soon but the trailhead was really torn up. Without the Magnolia Park entrance it is all packed limestone which can get a little bumpy. Once you get going there isn’t any water until you reach Green Mountain Overlook. It was a beautiful ride with very little elevation change before Green Mountain Overlook.
