Would definitely consider this more of a pedestrian trail and have rated it as such. It’s short, but does allow you to connect to areas off of Orange Ave and downtown if you want a spot to eat, etc.
If you’re looking for a quick jaunt and don’t mind an abundance of stop signs, this will be a decent trail for you. The trail tends to be more crowded than others and is slightly narrower in some points. You are truly sharing your outdoor time w everyone: bikers, joggers, walkers, etc. There are better trails, but this can do in a pinch. The connector to Cross Seminole at Howell Branch and Aloma is a plus for a longer ride.
This is the second portion of the trail. It is wonderfully treed, and essentially flat for a great ride. There are stop signs along the way, so you need to be careful, but the great thing is that they are 4 way stops and so cars tend to wait for you as you cross, giving you a mostly continuous bike ride. Did this during a weekday so wasn’t crowded at all.
Love this place, so much wildlife and such a beautiful breezy ride. Wasn’t sure how to get the the other trails though? We decided to turn around at pump house, that was enough for us seeing as though we are beginners.
My favorite trail
Few trails offer the variety of scenery that the West Orange Trail provides. It breezes through tasteful urban, suburban and small-town vistas near Orlando. The trail is wide, clean, and well maintained. The West Orange Trail has something for everyone, with great restaurants in downtown Winter Garden, excellent trailheads, canopies of shade, and charming suburban neighborhoods.
Rode the Van Fleet RT Feb 21-22, 2020. Combined with the semi-rural
Aburndale TECO trail the distance is 35.6 miles. If you like nature you'll
love the Van Fleet. Fully paved with mowed lawn on sides, then cypress
swamp and longleaf pine forests of the 322,690 acre Green Swamp Preserve. Saw a bobcat, a small snake and plenty of birds. From Park on
SR 33 in Polk City there's access to Aburndale trail going south and the
Van Fleet north. Parking at north end in Mabel take 121st Ave off route 50,
a 100yd long lumpy dirt road to nice parking area.
on a beautiful day what better way to spend a few hours very clean long scenic a terrific workout...
Very nice, wide trail with lots of beautiful views of the lakes. Also there are opportunities to go off the trail into the town of Clermont. Some reviewers commented about the hills... there are some decent hills for Florida on part of the trail, but they're not bad.
My wife and I rode the segment westbound starting at the trailhead just on the west side of I-95 all the way to the Maytown spur trailhead at Virgies. Nicely paved trail, below average scenery. Zero shade. This ride would be brutal in the summer. We chose this segment because the portion of the trail in downtown Titusville passed through a not so nice part of town.
Easy to ride and it has beautiful scenery. I had such a nice ride I didn't I had gone over five miles. I will most definitely be back
Beautiful bike ride!
