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 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).
