Lake Baldwin Trail... Orlando, FL

Bike, Walk, Jog - Popular Loop Trail Around Lake

Close to downtown Orlando FL, multi-use Lake Baldwin Trail is a 2.5 mile paved loop around Lake Baldwin. The trail is surrounded almost entirely by the planned community of Baldwin Park with its self-contained Village Center (restaurants, shops, etc.) steps from the trail. On the opposite side of the lake, Lake Baldwin Trail connects (one block) to the Cady Way Trail making Lake Baldwin a popular side-trip for longer distance bikers. The entire Baldwin Park community is bike and pedestrian-friendly. Along with Celebration and Lake Nona, this is a new vision for people-friendly and bike-friendly urban planning. Through its link to Cady Way, the Baldwin Park Trail provides safe, off-street access to neighborhoods, schools, and parks. (Map, photos below).

Lake Baldwin Trail and Baldwin Park... Comments and Photos

With a connection to the Cady Way Trail, this is a great multi-use trail for anyone living near downtown Orlando or Winter Park. Road bikers can ride for miles by connecting to Cady Way, which merges into the Cross Seminole Trail, with a connector to the Seminole Wekiva Trail (as part of the evolving 250-mile Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail). And with the East Central Regional Rail Trail now complete, it is possible to ride entirely on paved off-street trails from the Lake Baldwin Trail to Titusville, FL (although we doubt very many will). The Baldwin Park Village Center (lakeside park, piers) is a pleasant diversion, with a selection of restaurants and shops.

Biking on Lake Baldwin Trail

The area around Lake Baldwin is a conservation area owned by the City of Orlando. Parks accessible from the trail include Lake Baldwin Park and Dog Park, Veterans Memorial Park, and Blue Jacket Park. For a longer recreational ride, link to the Cady Way Trail, which connects to the Cross Seminole Trail. (Note: photos begin at Village Center and follow the trail counterclockwise around the lake.)

Access Points from the Cady Way Trail

There are two ways to access the Lake Baldwin Trail from the Cady Way Trail... (1) at Baldwin Park Road, a wide one-block connector (shown in orange on map) leads from Cady Way Trail to Lake Baldwin Lane where it crosses the road to the Lake Baldwin Trail, and (2) a 1-mile connector, unofficially, the "Lake Susannah Trail" (shown in orange on map) begins at the intersection of State Rd. 50 and Lake Baldwin Lane and runs north crossing the Cady Way Trail just past Roush Ave. It continues straight for a few blocks, then bends to skirt the shoreline of Lake Susannah, before bending back and ending across the street from the Lake Baldwin Trail.


Other Baldwin Park Biking

With bike lanes and mostly quiet streets, the entire community is bike-friendly.

Lake Baldwin Park

Lake Baldwin Park, 23 shady acres along the Lake Baldwin Trail. Most of the acreage is fenced dog park, but also parking, restrooms, picnic tables, playground, boat launch, and short pier.
