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

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.

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

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.
