Orlando Urban Trail Description

Orlando Urban Trail offers a pleasant way for pedestrians and bicyclists to reach a number of recreational and cultural attractions in the city's northern neighborhoods. It winds by several lakes, where you're likely to spot turtles, blue herons, and other wildlife. At its northern end, is Loch Haven Park, which houses a science center, museums, and performing arts theatres.

A portion of the trail is also known as the Dinky Line Trail as it follows the former Orlando and Winter Park Railroad, nicknamed the “Dinky Line” for its narrow-gauge tracks. Part of the trail also parallels the modern-day SunRail commuter line for a short distance and, one day, the trail will link three SunRail stations.

On the southern end of the trail, you can easily continue your walk or bike ride on the Gaston Edwards Trail along the eastern shore of Lake Ivanhoe. Where the Orlando Urban Trail crosses Highlands Avenue, you can head north for one block on the sidewalk to reach the other trail.  

Parking and Trail Access

On the trail's northern end, parking is available in Loch Haven Park (777 E. Princeton Street). On its southern end, you can find parking in nearby Gaston Edwards Park (1236 N. Orange Avenue).

Orlando Urban Trail Reviews

Pedestrian Trail

Would definitely consider this more of a pedestrian trail and have rated it as such. It’s short, but does allow you to connect to areas off of Orange Ave and downtown if you want a spot to eat, etc.

Come And Enjoy this Urban Trail And Stops along the way!

Enjoyed my recent ride on this trail. Even though it’s a short trail, there are plenty of spots to simply appreciate the simple beauty of Orlando. Plenty of places to stop for water, and a bite to eat as it will runs parallel and into a grouping of restaurants, grocery chain, and YES a Winery!!! For your next stop be camera ready for many pics or selfies on the bridge over lake Formosa -AMAZING SUNSETS. Be sure to ride around the Science Center too. And follow the trail through a neighborhood by the lake and reach Mead Garden Park! Very Relaxed Very Easy Very Fun Fun Note: for longer rides you can easily connect to Baldwin Park Loop, Cady Way Trail or Maitland Bike Trail

Cute Short Trail

This is a cute trail within the downtown of Orlando. Parking is easy as it crosses so many buildings and shopping centers. I only give it 4 of 5 stars because of the lack of trees. When you live in Florida you know how much shade is a major factor when on the trails! As this trail is “urban” and courses through many office buildings in the heart of the city planting trees is not always an easy task. I understand, it’s just a by-product of an older city with a newer trail.

too short

Nice path if you're already there. Certainly not worth making a special effort to ride it.

Accordion

Short but enjoyable

Took it casually with wife and got to enjoy it. Eventually links to other trails if you start from the southern starting point. Goes by the Orlando art museum and a few lakes.
