The Spring-to-Spring Trail is part of both the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail and St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop . At its start at Lake Monroe Park in DeBary, it's part of the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail to Dirksen Road where it meets the St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop and diverges into two legs. See details at www.100FloridaTrails.com
At Lake Monroe Park in DeBary, a shared-use lane (about a half mile) spans the St. Johns River bridge, connecting to the Cross Seminole Trail at Wayside Park in Sanford as part of the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail.
At the end of the bridge, enter Lake Monroe Park and go through the parking lot to the trailhead (to the left, past the boat launches). The park includes parking, restrooms, picnic, playground, boardwalk, boat ramp, and fishing.
From the Lake Monroe trailhead, the trail (also called the Pat Northy Pathway) is an exceptionally scenic ride, meandering through diverse habitat that includes cypress swamp, oak/palm hammock, pine stand, and prairie to Dirksen Drive and the Gemini Springs North Trailhead.
View our complete report on the entire trail and gaps at www.100FloridaTrails.com (see 120+Trail photos). Used by both recreational and long-distance bikers, hikers, joggers, and skaters, the remaining legs of the Spring-to-Spring Trail can meet most riding interests and styles from natural areas and parks, to suburban roadways, to open straightaways.
