COMMENTS AND PHOTOS... East Central Regional Rail Trail

Green Springs Park is a hidden gem. Get it right and old downtown Titusville could blossom. When completed and linked this will be a top Florida trail. (Note: although most of the trail is outside our "30-mile" reach, it does start within the area so we include it here.)

We describe this trail in 3 sections, west to east:

Section 1: Green Springs Park to Maytown

Green Springs Park Trailhead

Green Springs Park serves as a trailhead and connector to the Spring-to-Spring Trail. One of a few green sulphur springs remaining, Green Springs was once popular as a health spa and is now a county park, with parking, water, picnic, playground.


Green Spring to SR415 Bridge (Osteen)

From Green Springs, the trail is mostly away from roads, with canopied sections and boardwalks over wetlands. Benches are spaced regularly along the trail, there are some crossroads and driveways but traffic is very light if any.


SR415 Bridge to Guise Road

From the trailhead at the SR415 bridge, the trail extends another 2.5 miles east to Guise Road. (August 2015).

Also from the Osteen trailhead but running south, a separate multi-use paved trail follows SR415 to Seminole County at the St. John's River. (April 2017)

Section 2: Maytown to Edgewater

SR 442 to Edgewater

From Maytown, the trail will extend northeast to the town of Edgewater. A bridge spans Route 442 near Edgewater, and the trail from the bridge to Dale Ave. is now complete (4 miles). Some well shaded sections. There are a few road crossings, the busiest at Old Mission Road. (May 2016)

Section 3: Maytown to Titusville

From Maytown, the East Central Regional Rail Trail runs southeast to Titusville as part of the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail .


Volusia/Brevard County Line to I-95 Trailhead

The section from the Volusia/Brevard County line to Titusville and trailhead at I-95 in Mims were opened to the public in Feb. 2018 - some work remains in progress. From the county line to the I-95 trailhead, it runs about 5.5 miles along a power line with no shade and no covered benches or other amenities yet. Road bikers on the Coast-to-Coast Trail will like this uninterrupted ride. This is a remote area, no road crossings. An equestrian trail parallels the bike path. (Feb. 2018)


I-95 Trailhead to US1

Past I-95 is a more narrow corridor that is partially shaded depending on time of day. Homes can be seen through the trees, and the trail passes Indian River Preserve Golf Club before emerging roadside at Folsom Road. This section is a neighborhood trail serving homes and schools along the path, be careful at the cross streets. The trail runs alongside the road until it meets US 1 at the Mims/Titusville line at Parker Street.


US1 to Garden St. / SR406 Bridge

The trail runs along busy US 1 with a wide buffer for about 3 miles past businesses and homes, then branches off at Malinda Lane for a little over 1/2 mile to the Garden Street / SR406 Bridge.


SR406 Bridge to Max Brewer Bridge

From the bridge, the trail  runs through an industrial corridor to Canaveral Ave. and then to Main Street. 12-foot striped bike lanes along Main Street and Indian River Avenue mark the route to the Max Brewer Bridge. (July 2017)
