Cady Way Trail - This urban trail from Orlando's Fashion Square Mall to Winter Park's Ward Park offers shelters, rest stops with benches, and water fountains along the trail. Portions parallel the former Orlando Naval Training Base, now the planned community of Baldwin Park. Bridge over busy route 436 now links to Cross Seminole Trail. See full description here.
End Points: Orlando to Winter Park, link to
Cross Seminole Trail; plans to link to
Little Econ Greenway.
Cross Seminole Trail - Recent links in this suburban trail have connected sections of the trail from the I-4 Pedestrian Bridge in Lake Mary to Spring Hammock Preserve, from Layer Elementary School to Oviedo, and from Oviedo to the Cady Way Trail. When completed, the trail will span 24 miles. A portion of the trail is designated as part of the Florida National Scenic Trail. Oviedo's downtown chickens are a reminder of the town's rural roots; Oviedo can look to Winter Garden for a model of downtown redevelopment around a bicycle trail. Winter Springs should look into routing the trail through Winter Springs Town Center rather than around it! See full description here.
End Points: Oviedo to Lake Mary;
parking at Rinehart Road and Lake Mary Blvd, Big Tree Park, Black Hammock Trailhead,
downtown Oviedo, Winter Springs Town Center, Goldenrod Park.
