The Chain of Lakes Trail stretches for more than 3 miles along a former railroad bed from downtown Winter Haven to north of Lake Alfred in central Florida. As its name implies, you'll pass numerous lakes along the way, as well as parks, neighborhoods and businesses.
After the first mile (from the trail's southern endpoint), you'll approach busy Avenue T. Use the bike/pedestrian bridge to get across.
The pathway continues north another two miles to U.S. Highway 17/92. There is a new bike/pedestrian bridge over US 17/92 and the trail now continues another mile into Lake Alfred.
Parking is available at the southern end of the trail in Winter Haven at the Chain of Lakes Downtown Trailhead Park (611 Third Street, NW) and at Inman Park (8th Street NW).
TrailLink is a free service provided by Rails-to-Trails conservancy
