This is a nice ride and the beautiful homes accents the journey. But for such nice neighborhoods one rolls down, the trail needs maintenance. Tree roots are breaking through the pavement and makes for a bumpy ride at times. Yet, all things considered, a fun roll. One can also connect to other routes, which can extend the ride. Fun!
Wonderful , beautiful trail . Great riding surface . The tree canopies made riding bikes in Florida even better . Beautiful farms and great butterflies habit along the trail .
I came cycling from Downtown Orlando to here and I really enjoyed. Great atmosphere.
We rode the northernmost part of the trail. We parked at Barkley Dog Park in DeLand, which has bathrooms and is relatively close to the start of the trail. We rode north all the way to DeLeon Spring. The entrance to the Spring is about a mile from the end of the bike trail but is easy to access. $2 per bike to get in to the park, but it’s worth it to take a dip and cool off before heading back. Looking forward to doing other legs of the trail. 16 mile round trip!
The most difficult part of the ride is in the town with crossing streets, but only one is really busy. Majority of the ride toward the naval base is quiet. About half of the trail has shade. We drove an hour from AL to ride this trail and we are looking forward to riding again
This past Friday I had t he pleasure of riding The West Orange Trail. We parked and entered the Trail at the Killarney Station. We rode through Oakland, through Winter Garden, and a few miles further, we turned and headed back to Winter Garden, for lunch. Along our route we not only saw older historic buildings, but beautiful homes, natural wildlife habitats, as well as the very nice Butterfly Garden. We saw a chicken crossing, where the local rooster was doing just that, checking on all the chicks in the area, crossing from one side of the road to the other. The Oakland Park was picturesque. And we even passed a walking/hiking point, though we opted in the heat of Summer to keep riding past... Definitely a family friendly trail, as we ventured past playgrounds, as well as families on their bikes, and/or walking. Runners, and cyclists alike met us on our “Cruisin’” journey. Round trip we did 22.38 miles, and still did not see everything. We will be back.... nicely done!
Terrific trail with lots of nature and shade!
We rode this morning and encountered a handful of other riders and 1 runner. Great 12 mile trail. Thank’s to Trinity Lutheran Church for the parking. The path is in great condition and the trees made the feel like temperature 15-20 degrees cooler. Can’t wait for the eventual connection to the sea.
Sanibel is our favorite vacation spot and part of the draw is how well the city has maintained its natural state and allows for easy commuting by bike. So much to see along the way including nature preserves, we saw an alligator on one of them, access to virtually anywhere. We rented ebikes on our last visit, would love to drive sometime in order to just bring our own ebikes.
This trail seemed to go on forever. We parked at Salinas park, which has clean restrooms, beach access, and a gorgeous boardwalk overlooking the bay. We did 16 miles round trip, with a stop at the beach. But you could go even further if desired.
We started at the lighthouse and rode all the way to the end of the paved road in the state park. The beach is unspoiled and there are restrooms in two locations at the park. We spent some time in the water and then rode back, 18 miles round trip to the lighthouse. $2 per bike to enter the park, but well worth it.
We rode this in August 2020. We parked at the gulf, which made the total trail 12 miles one way. It goes through a wildlife reserve, although we didn’t see any wildlife. We ended close to sunset and then walked along the beach.
