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).

Shingle Creek Regional Trail (FL) Reviews

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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!
