Florida's many parks and preserves on Federal, State and local public lands offer a wealth of unpaved (and some paved) nature/eco-biking options for fat-tire bikes, and Central Florida is home to some of the best. Here is a summary of some unpaved trails near Orlando that we've enjoyed. We've also included links to full reports (maps, photos) located on our sister website 100FloridaTrails.com .
Note: Trail conditions may vary from year to year, subject to storms, repairs, and closures.
Lake Apopka Loop Trail - About 18 miles by the north shore of Lake Apopka in Orange and Lake Counties. Biking also on 9-mile Wildlife Drive, a one-way dirt road, shared with cars Fri - Sun only.
Shingle Creek Management Area - In south Orlando, the area protects Shingle Creek, headwaters of The Everglades. Activities include hiking, eco-biking, mountain-biking, paddling, fishing, picnicking, wildlife viewing.
Wekiva Springs State Park - This State Park near Orlando is best known for swimming and snorkeling at Wekiva Spring, but has much more to offer, including 7.8 miles of off-road biking.
Lake Jesup Conservation Area - Established to protect the waters of Lake Jesup, the Conservation Area consists of 3 separate sections. Mostly enjoyed by hikers, we like one section for biking.
Lake Woodruff National Wildlife Refuge - Popular for bird watching (especially in the winter). Entrance near DeLeon Springs State Park, over 15 miles of trails for hiking and biking. Avoid when wet.
Lake Louisa State Park - Biking is popular on the 7-miles of paved park roads, most with bike lanes both sides. 20 miles of unpaved multi-use trails. A "natural theme park" close to Disney World, there are activities here for just about everyone.
Lake Norris Conservation Area - 5.5 mile multi-use trail near Eustis, FL. Best biking from the East Trailhead, most is better suited to hiking and equestrians due to sand. Kayak launch onto Blackwater Creek and Lake Norris from the East Trailhead.
Seminole State Forest - Gated vehicle entrance - code required from Forest Service - thus a quiet area surprisingly close-in, only about 5 miles west of Sanford. Hard-packed roads, a popular forest bike ride.
