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 several. Most are also suitable (or even better suited) for hiking. Here are some near Orlando that we've enjoyed. You can also view more Florida eco-biking and hiking trails on our sister website www.100FloridaTrails.com.
Note: Trail conditions may vary from year to year, subject to storms and other 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., Sat., Sun. only.
Tosohatchee Wildlife Management Area - Along St. Johns River near Christmas, FL, east of Orlando. About 22 miles mostly hard-packed roads, but plenty of sandy spots can be a workout. River access.
Lake Jesup Conservation Area - Established to protect the waters of Lake Jesup, the Conservation Area consists of 3 separate sections. Most popular for hiking, we like about 4 miles of trails for biking
Lake Louisa State Park - This State Park includes biking on the 7-mile paved main road, plus 20 miles of multi-use trails for eco-biking or hiking. Billed as a "natural theme park" close to Disney World, there are activities here for just about everyone. Popular for camping.
Lake Norris Conservation Area - 5.5 mile multi-use trail near Eustis, FL. Best biking at the East Trailhead, most better suited to hiking and equestrians due to sand. Popular paddling launch onto Blackwater Creek from the East Trailhead.
Seminole State Forest - Gated entrance - must get code from Forest Service - thus a quiet area surprisingly close-in, only about 5 miles west of Sanford. Hard-packed dirt roads, one of the easier forest rides.
