The Shingle Creek Trail (aka "Shingle Creek Regional Trail") is a 32-mile trail project involving Orange County, Osceola County, City of Orlando, and City of Kissimmee. Each entity publishes a trail map showing the status of the trail within its borders. For a more complete view of the entire trail, check out our Google map below (Red = completed trail, Blue = planned or under construction). See links below for details and trail updates by County.

Because of the size and evolving nature of the Shingle Creek Trail, we present details on separate pages, one for Orange County and one for Osceola County. Recently completed trail sections offer a variety of short but interesting biking options, with opportunities to extend your bike ride via connections to other multi-use trails and parks.
Two completed sections, safe in-town biking,
passing some parks and natural areas.
Currently, two short but scenic sections,
each with an option for added biking.
When complete, the Shingle Creek Trail will total 32 miles and be part of a Central Florida regional trail network stretching from Kissimmee northward to Wekiva Springs State Park, with links to the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail. Currently a "Neighborhood (N)" trail used mostly by locals - when the connections between Kissimmee and Orange County are complete, this will rate as a "Destination (D)" bike trail.
Shingle Creek was named in the late 19th century after the cypress trees that lined the bank, which were used to make wood shingles. Beginning in south Orange County, the creek forms the northernmost headwaters of The Everglades. Flowing into Lake Tohopekaliga (Lake Toho), it continues down the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes to Lake Okeechobee and then The Everglades. The creek and surrounding area are protected wetlands due to their importance to Everglades restoration efforts.
