I was happily surprised to see a new section of this trail open, south of Oak Ride. There’s a good length that you can travel south all the way to Sand Lake Road. Beware a section that is being repaired just north of LB McLeod … but it’s possible to walk your bike past in the travel lane when clear. I do wish there was more signage overall
Rode out and back about 50 miles from the Edgewater Rotary Park towards Titusville. The trail is in near perfect condition with only a few minor surface bumps within the first few miles. This is a great trail for training as it really opens up after the first 1/2 dozen miles or so and you can really roll if you like. The scenery is also pretty good too. No services other than an “honor” station so take what you need unless you’re going all the way to Titusville.
Fantastic place for a bicycle, beautiful scenery ! Will go back many times
The missing central section of this trail was filled in, a couple months ago as I understand. It's now complete between Osteen and Maytown. You can now cycle from Titusville, on the Indian River, all the way to DeBary and on to the St. Johns River at Lake Monroe Park. (And likewise from Edgewater, on the Halifax River.)
We were in the Vero Beach area so we rode the trail one morning after a rainstorm. Note that if this is the case, the sand/dirt trail might have some puddles on it. Some we were able to ride around and others we had to get off our bikes and walk through since we didn't know how deep they were. We parked and started at the Pelican Wildlife Preserve which worked out great with restrooms access. The rest of the trail is pretty woody through the hammocks and not really much to see until you get to the golf courses where you can see the backyards of large houses. Since we went in late June, it was hot, humid and sunny. Since we live in Florida, we were prepared but bring your water with you, there are no stations that we saw. We passed 3 cars the whole ride with one local flooring it down the trail splashing mud everywhere in her Volvo. We also got behind a lawnmower near the gold course. It was a nice ride and we can say we did it but not one we would go out of our way to ride again.
Well paved and maintained! Very flat and not much to look at. Usual FL wildlife, we did spot TEN gators in the drainage creek alongside the path, which was cool! No shade, only one little store 5 mi from McDonald’s parking, so bring your own nutrition, water, & sunscreen!
Never feels “packed” and nice scenery!
I’ve seen rabbits, otters and gators while riding this trail (different occasions for each.) The path is well maintained and great for inlines. Not all of it is scenic, there are many parts that run directly behind peoples houses or school fields. For me the scenic areas are worth the spots that are less so.
Pretty trail that begins at the zoo parking lot and ends in a beautiful neighborhood. These is no parking on the neighborhood side.
I didn’t find this trail very interesting. Another user had said that it felt like “an alley” and this is true for the section between Hoagland and John Young where it closely passes homes and apartments. The rest of the trail between John Young - Central and the southern section by the airport seem barren. The trail does connect to Shingle Creek and additional trails which are definitely worth visiting. Overall, this is the least interesting bike trail I have traversed in Florida. I will return to West Orange and Cross Seminole trails before biking this one again.
Rode the trail again but took the 47 mile route for my 1st CENTURY ride, just wish I could have gotten three more miles on that side for the full 50. The new addition to trail is nearly done but is accessible, just be aware of the incomplete curbs! Trail is mostly shaded until you get to Sanford’s Coast line which is beautiful¿. Came into close encounters with two baby bobcats at mile 92 as the sun began to set. Let’s say the adrenaline kicked in very quick. Warning there are three overpass so if you ride entire trail save some energy but you can skip the over pass and pass underneath for wimps only! SAFE TRAVELS!¿¿¿¿
This is more like an alley between what are not nice areas.. felt unsafe. Plus the pavement is in bad shape
