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 in Lake Monroe Park in DeBary, it's part of the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail to Dirksen Drive, 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, separated from the road by a concrete barrier) 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, the trail crosses the entry to Lake Monroe Park and continues on a short loop to Old DeLand Road. It then parallels the road to the trailhead (parking, restrooms, picnic, fix-it-station). From the trailhead is also a link into the park, with additional parking, restrooms, picnic, playground, boardwalk, boat ramp, and fishing.
From the Lake Monroe trailhead, the trail (also called the Pat Northey 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 (parking only). This section also intersects several hiking trails - we biked a short distance on the "blue" trail, but found many roots plus sections torn up by wild hogs.
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.
