Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL) Description

After 30 years of planning, the first segment of the Shingle Creek Regional Trail opened in Kissimmee in November 2016. The paved trail spans just over 1 mile, beginning near Steffee Landing, south of US Highway 192. From there, the trail runs past the Osceola County Welcome Center and Historical Museum to end at Pioneer Village. The route is shaded by a dense canopy of cypress trees.

Two additional segments of the trail have since opened. After a short gap, a section of the trail begins near an apartment complex and continues northward for just over a mile along the heavily wooded Shingle Creek, ending just west of Flora Ridge Elementary School.

The next section of trail totals 6.5 miles, including a loop around a lake at its northern end. It begins off W. Oak Ridge Road in southwest Orlando and parallels the roadway, heading east, bordering a large shopping complex before turning north at Millenia Boulevard. The trail crosses under I-4 and then parallels Vineland Road a short distance before it takes a northwest turn into a quiet residential neighborhood away from the street. As the trail approaches its northern end, it parallels President Barack Obama Parkway up to Eagle Nest Park, where picnic pavilions, ball fields, restrooms, and other amenities are available.

Planners hope the trail will one day total 32 miles between Kissimmee and Orlando.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available on the southern-most trail section at the Osceola County Welcome Center (4155 W. Vine St., Kissimmee). On the northern trail segment, parking is available in Eagle Nest Park (5165 Metrowest Blvd., Orlando).

First Time Riders

Visiting Orlando, first time we brought our bikes. Looked this up on the App. Enjoyed the rides on the well paved trail. Overcast February day, so sun was not a problem. Great warm up ride for a casual 1 hour ride out and back.

Ride on December 18, 2020

Experienced a bit of difficulty finding parking but eventually solved that problem. The trail is nice and the section my wife and I rode was scenic. In all honesty this trail is too urban for my tastes but I can see how it would appeal to locals for walking, running and recreational riding.

Favorite Daily Route

I pick up the trail at Destination Parkway and go all the way up to Oak Ridge (3 miles total). It's well maintained, and really quite beautiful and peaceful. I incorporate these two sections into my daily ride and love it every time! The Destination Parkway to Sand Lakr road section is 1 mile along a canal setting. Lots of Sandhill Cranes to be seen, and some snakes (be careful, they're pretty venomous), but never any gators, which I have seen on the Sand Lake to Oak Ridge section (2 miles) in the lakes/ponds. This is a popular multi use trail, so be aware of people walking/running.

Very nice but short

Trail is in great shape.. nice view as you ride.. It is very short 8.5 mile round trip..


What a nice surprise. Parking available at the former Artegon parking lot on the corner of Oakridge Road and International Drive

Well Shaded, Abundant Wildlife

Enjoy a early morning ride through the Shingle Creek Preserve and Sanctuary. Well shaded and nice wide path. During my ride saw several species NOC birds, snake crossing my path,, alligator in the one of the many lakes. Path ends just North of Carol Street however the path is being extended over Osceola Parkway and will exited and additional 30 miles.

First Bike Trail

First bike trail I’ve ridden since moving to Florida. I really enjoyed this one. Goes past the Kissimmee Historic Society, & it’s a very scenic ride.

Ample Parking @ Osceola Welcome Center (across the street)

Kissimmee is doing a great job with this Trail!. I enjoyed the connection ride from Shingle Creek to Kissimmee Loop Trail That BRIDGE OVER John Young Parkway is a MUST, very pretty and a fun ride. Plenty of places for pictures, and selfies. Loved the ride alongside the creek. I will submit pics as soon as I download them. Can’t wait to see more connections added to this project. Tip: get there during the earlier part of the day. The roadway to get there is busy with traffic.

Nice trail with varied scenery

We rode the trail in early February and were pleasantly surprised. We got a few extra miles by riding from our house to the Shingle Creek Regional Park - Steffee Landing. That would be a good starting point if you are driving. There is a tunnel that passes under Route 192. The trail is asphalt most of the way and is relatively flat and the trail is wide. The loop around Pioneer Village is packed dirt and is well maintained. There are many spurs around on this trail, each one offering something worth seeing.

Now open from Tapestry to 192 - January 2019

They have opened the section that joins the two pieces shown on the map. Thus one can join the trail at the Tapestry development off Dyer Blvd and go all the way to Kissimmee Lakefront or to Pioneer Village. Great addition. Looking forward to them finishing off the northern section up to Osceola Parkway next as they acquired the easement rights in 2018.

Excelente trail

Es una pista corta pero suficiente para hacer un circuito de 5 km ida y vuelta. Excelente opción para correr alrededor de las 7 a 9 am, hay sombra casi todo el recorrido. Nos encontramos conejos, garzas y pavo reales.

Beautiful Setting + Nice Amenities = Great Trail

Wonderful way to spend the day in Kissimmee. Start off with a walk or ride and when it gets warm rent a kayak and paddle along the canopy covered creek. Can't wait for the future segments to be built and the trail connect with the Coast to Coast Connector!
