The Halifax River Trail (also known as the Halifax River Greenway) will one day stretch 11 miles from Port Orange to Ormond Beach on Florida’s northeast coast. It’s currently open in two segments totaling nearly 6 miles. The route is part of the East Coast Greenway, a growing trail network running from the Keys to Maine.
The trail begins in Cassen Park in Ormond Beach, where trail goers can find parking and restrooms. Farther south, in Holly Hill, a 1.3-mile section parallels Riverside Drive from LPGA Boulevard to 2nd Street. This stretch is also known locally as the Pat Northey Trail after a Volusia County commissioner who is an advocate for trails.
A highlight of the pathway is Sunrise Park, set on a pretty peninsula dotted with palm trees and scrub oaks with a large fishing pier at the waterfront. With parking, picnic tables, and restrooms, the park provides a good rest stop for your journey. About a half-mile south, the trail traverses Ross Point Park, which also offers a fishing pier and picnic benches along the river.
In Daytona Beach, another 1.4-mile section continues southward to Riverfront Park. Note that there’s a short gap in the trail along Ballough Road.
Parking is available at the north end of the trail in Cassen Park at the intersection of W. Granada Boulevard and N. Beach Street in Ormond Beach. In Holly Hill, parking is also available at Sunrise Park (1135 Riverside Drive) and Ross Point Park (611 Riverside Drive). In Daytona Beach, on-street parking is available along Beach Street at the edge of Riverfront Park (150 S. Beach Street).
