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!
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.
Definitely a ride through the wilderness. Water stations but little else along the way. Bring your own food as the is nowhere to purchase.
Nice ride with towns along the way. Good amount of shade as well with trail heads and water access along the way. Extension currently underway which will significantly increase the length.
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.
Need to access the trail from 2050 Lust Road.
This is a really nice trail with wonderful views but there is absolutely no shade! Sunscreen is vital!
