From Barna east to the end at Kathy Trail is a very nice trail! It's plenty wide, well used and surprisingly not flat. The entire trail goes through nicely sized natural area.
The much shorter portion of the trail through Wuesthoff Park is nice and does include some exercise stations. The very final section of that short trail going west is clearly not used as much.
While down here visiting family I've enjoyed the trail a few times because it's so nice and very convenient to ride my grocery getter over to the nearby Publix for provisions.
I usually park off of markham roads road but honestly the trailer is really nice and a lot of nature. I really appreciate how smooth the asphalt is, no bumps or anything besides sometimes leaves (as to be expected). Pretty solid trail though, I’m trying to find more like it.
It was such a beautiful ride but I couldn’t follow the bike path with street crossings and all. I wish I had an app that could serve as a guide…I loved the trail so I’ll do it again.
Feels very unsafe
While I ride the stretch from the Sebastian Inlet bridge to Melbourne beach proper, I don't consider it great. You have two choices, ride on the fairly well maintained sidewalk, or in the road. The mamils in their spiffy colors and 5k bikes ride on the road. The are crazy. There is no bike lane, and at times the speed limit is 55, which means cars are passing you inches away at 65mph. Remember, this is the land of Q-tips driving, and texters. You have to be out of your mind. The side walk is fine to ride on. Wind can be brutal, I time it so the wind is at my back on the way home. There are lots of little side roads to explore as well. The stretch from the bridge to Vero is awful. The sidewalk here is individually poured concrete sections, and you will thump/thump for 20 miles. Terrible ride.
While traveling, my wife and I were Pleased to enjoy this entire trail. It features a shared space between a nature preserve and residential area. Trail head also includes a visitor center that was an enjoyable stop as well, learning about the environmental and cultural history of the area. The most exciting aspect was to learn that we were biking along a watershed that is the start of the Everglades.
Not much fun crossing busy streets. We turned around and went home halfway into the ride. Too much work.
We drove from Vero Beach to the Green Springs Park to ride the Spring to Spring Trail. We headed west on the trail from Green Springs to Gemini Springs. At first I was a little disappointed. The trail ran along side a busy, noisy street. After a few miles we stopped at Gemini Springs and went for a walk around the park and used the restroom. The park was quite nice and it gave us time to regroup. For a moment we contemplated going back East to Green Springs and head on to Maytown but decided to keep going... and so glad we did! We followed the trail to Lake Monroe Park and on over the bridge to Sanford. What a lovely ride along the lake. Our ride roundtrip was roughly 24 miles. We decided to drive back to Sanford for dinner and ended up at the St. John's River Steak and Seafood restaurant with a view of the water. We had a great meal and a glass of wine. We decided to spend the night since the next morning we were going to hike the Orlando Wetlands park. Next time we will come back and ride east on the trail from Green Springs. It is worth the trip for sure!
Well maintained Florida’s natural beauty at its best. Quiet while riding you truly feel apart of the scenic experience.
I purchased a home that backed up to This trail in 2001. As such, I have walked and biked it thousands of times. It doesn’t get old. Beautiful, not too crowded, wide. The trail was a lot of shade under large old oaks while in the “Pines,” and you can take it East to Oviedo, eating, and a mall or West to Baldwin Park for a quaint downtown bite or drink (brewery, etc.). Further West you can hit another Mall (kind odd…two malls on a trail?) or continue along to downtown Orlando!
Arrive early to avoid the crowd on Sunday. We had a good time nonetheless.
This trail is fine as a connection from Sanford, but isn’t a place to go as a destination ride. It starts at Celery Rd/Lake Mary Rd (SR 415) and terminates in Osteen where it runs into the East Central Regional Rail Trail (ECRRT). The trail is concrete and wide. It goes over the St Johns and loops under the bridge and rides along the northbound side for about 5 miles where it ends under the ECRRT.
