A beautiful trail for walking or biking, not long but perfect for a walk or short ride.
Curvy paths, shaded in spots, fun ride over and under highway. Clean paved trails. If you are more adventurous, mountain biking too. Great fun!
Tried this trail today. Came in from the Withlachoochee Trail. Only went about six miles on it because we had a way to go to get back home. Nice, smooth ride with very few other riders. Want to go back and do the entire trail next time and we will come in from the Beooksville end. Could definitely use a restroom and a place to get water along the trail. Other than that, it was a nice ride!
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!
Overall nice flat trail. Was perfect for my cruiser bike. Was hoping to see more wildlife, but was able to get a few nice pictures.
If you are looking to use a racing bike and just get a ride in, this would be the trail. It is a smooth ride and well maintained. It is not for the casual rider. There isn’t much shade, water stations or even stops. You will find a noisier ride since you are paralleling a major highway. The one great surprise is at approx 4 miles north of 56, you will find an entrance to Starkey Park where you can take a peaceful ride in the park.
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.
We had a wonderful ride through quiet marshes and natural habitat. Biked 38 miles and enjoyed the whole trip, seeing lots of wildlife including multiple tortoises and viper snake. I highly recommend this ride. Bring plenty of water.
We parked in Lake Beresford Park and rode south to the “current” end of the trail which is Rob Sullivan Park. Lots of shade, great parking and amenities (bathroom, water) at both ends. Highly recommend. Round trip is approximately 18 miles. This trail has curves and hills. Felt great!
If you are ending the Orlando Urban trail at Magnolia or Orange Ave. continue on any of these streets south until you reach Livingston St. then make a left (go east). This will dead end at Maguire Blvd at which point you will have to turn right (go south). Maguire will turn into N. Crystal Lake Dr. This is where this trail starts. You can make circles around Lake Underhill park for more miles. Every time I’ve gone there, there are plenty of ppl around jogging, walking, biking. I saw otters one time near the edge of the lake.
We rode the northern section of the trail, from DeLeon Springs to W. Minnesota Street. A good portion of this trail is a narrow sidewalk. We had breakfast at Ponce DeLeon State Park (you cook your own pancakes) and then we hit the trail. Next time we will ride the next segment that starts near Lake Beresford Park. We checked it out, lots of amenities.
We rode this trail today and it's one of our favorites so far! Smooth paved trail, we saw a deer, turtle and snake!
