Spring to Spring Trail... Comments and Photos

A suggested day trip - 10 mile bike ride plus Blue Springs State Park. Start at Lake Beresford Park. Ride the 2 mile park loop, and then the 3 mile trail section to Blue Springs. After visiting the manatees, ride the 3 miles back to Lake Beresford Park and finish by riding the 2-mile park loop in the opposite direction from your first ride.


We track the Spring-to-Spring Trail in 3 sections:

  1. From Lake Monroe Park, the first section is exceptionally scenic to DeBary Hall.
  2. The second section continues east from DeBary Hall along Dirksen Road and DeBary Avenue to Green Springs Park where it connects with the East Central Regional Rail Trail.
  3. The third section runs north from DeBary, and includes segments at DeBary Country Club, in Orange City past Blue Spring State Park to Lake Beresford Park, and along Grand Ave. between Glenwood and DeLeon Springs.

Section 1: Lake Monroe Park to DeBary Hall

 

Lake Monroe Park to Gemini Springs Park

The trail is part of the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail, a shared-use lane now spans the St. Johns River bridge linking it to the C2C in Seminole County. The Spring-to-Spring Trail starts here at Lake Monroe Park (parking, restrooms, picnic, playground, boardwalk, boat ramp, fishing), then meanders 2.4 miles through diverse habitat that includes cypress swamp, oak/palm hammock, pine stand, and prairie to Gemini Springs Park (parking, restrooms, picnic, playground, fishing, canoe launch, hiking and horse trails)


 

Gemini Springs Park to Mansion Blvd.

For the 1.7 miles from Gemini Springs to DeBary Hall, the trail follows the road (Dirksen Dr.), partly under shaded canopy and the remainder adjacent to the roadbed. At Mansion Blvd. turn off to DeBary Hall and the trailhead, or continue on to Section 2 to Green Spring Park.


 

Mansion Blvd. to DeBary Hall

Cross Dirksen Dr. onto Mansion Blvd. and ride to the DeBary Hall Trailhead (parking, restrooms). Stop at the Visitors Center at the Trailhead to learn more about this historic site. (Updated: March 2018)


Section 2: DeBary Hall to Green Springs Park

This 3-mile trail segment is mostly along the road and unshaded, but an important component as it connects the Spring-to-Spring Trail to the East Central Regional Rail Trail at Green Springs Park - and is part of the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail . (Updated: March 2018)

 

DeBary Hall to Enterprise

From DeBary Hall (Mansion Blvd.) trail follows Dirksen Drive east to I-4. Past I-4 the road name changes to DeBary Ave., the trail continuing alongside the roadway with some cross-streets.

 


 

Enterprise to Green Springs Park

After entering Enterprise, the roadway runs through a less commercial area, then turns away from the road at Jacob Brock Ave. At Providence Blvd. is a link to parking at Thornby Park, then the trail runs on a boardwalk parallel to Perimeter Drive before arriving at Green Springs Park. Continuing past Green Springs Park, you are now on the East Central Regional Rail Trail.


Section 3: DeBary to DeLeon Springs

Dirksen Road to DeBary Country Club

This section starts where Dirksen Road crosses US 17 near Gemini Springs Park, closing a gap at this point is scheduled for construction in 2019-2020. A 2-mile section of trail restarts at Rob Sullivan Park and runs along Highbanks Road and Donald Smith Blvd. behind DeBary Country Club. From here, construction has started on a 1.25 mile section that will connect to the Blue Springs segment. (October 2018)


Orange City to Blue Spring Park to Lake Beresford

This 5.5 mile segment of the Spring-to-Spring trail in Orange City runs past Blue Spring State Park to Lake Beresford Park. The trail runs between the railroad track and the state park, no road crossings (it includes a bridge and a tunnel), and is mostly shaded except for about 3/4 mile at Blue Spring. Excellent recreational ride past forest, fields, and some swamp, totaling 13 miles round-trip when including the Beresford Trails Loop (see below). Blue Spring State Park has the largest spring on the St. Johns River and is a designated manatee refuge; parking, restrooms, picnic, camping, kayak/canoe launch, fishing, concession, scuba, hiking and more.

At Lake Beresford Park, a pretty 2 mile loop around the trails area. The park includes parking, restrooms, playground, picnic pavilions, and nature hiking trails.


Glenwood to DeLeon Springs

The trail runs 6 miles along Grand Avenue through Glenwood. The south section from W. Minnesota Ave. to King St. is a paved path next to the road, then continues on bike lanes to Lemon St. The north section runs from Lemon St. to W. Baxter St. as a bike path. From Baxter Street, a street route leads to Chuck Lennon Park (parking, restrooms, picnic pavilion, playground, playing fields, mountain bike trails), and to the entrance of DeLeon Springs State Park.
