The 7.5 mile urban Cady Way Trail begins at Orlando's Lake Druid Park, continuing to Fashion Square Mall (the previous start point, new segment opened in early 2012), runs to Winter Park's Cady Way Park, continues over a bridge at busy SR436, and to trail terminus at Howell Branch/Hall Road where it connects with the 23-mile Cross Seminole Trail. (More photos, detailed map, and commentary below.

This Central Florida biking trail passes through various urban and suburban areas, some industrial areas, and parks, with a link to the planned community of Baldwin Park. An on-road route to the Orlando Urban Trail is in the works. There are shelters, benches, and water fountains located along the trail. Oak canopy over some portions help keep it cool.

COMMENTARY and BOBCAT'S PHOTO GALLERY (hover over photo for larger view)

Comments by Mudfish: The links to the Cross Seminole Trail (west) and Baldwin Park (east) make this a "Destination" trail. The long straight-away bridge over SR 436 is a fun change-of-pace (and work-out) for old Florida flatlanders. Downtown Baldwin Park offers food, drink.
Druid Lake Park to Fashion Square
New section of trail completed in early 2012 moved the start of the Cady Way Trail to Druid Lake Park, eventually to be opened as a mountain bike course. The trail goes through portions of the former Orlando Naval Training Center to the business park and linking to Maguire Blvd.

Road crossing to Cady Way Park
Cady Way Park to Goldenrod Trailhead
Leaving Cady Way Park (parking, water, restrooms, picnic, playing fields, tennis, pool) this Orlando paved trail goes through a residential area and into a commercial area. A 685 foot bridge spans busy SR436, then the trail goes past an industrial area to Forsyth Road, across SR551, and to Goldenrod Park (parking, restrooms, water, playground). From Goldenrod Park is a short ride to the trail end at Hall Road/Howell Branch Road and the beginning of the Cross Seminole Trail. These are busy intersections, be careful when crossing.
