March 2021, updates:
Cross Seminole Trail
We revisited the final gap on the Cross Seminole Trail in Winter
Springs and consider it essentially completed. While the trail
itself has a gap at a railroad crossing that awaits completion,
a detour provides for continuous paved biking on new trail and
roads from the previous end at Layer Elementary School to the
powerlines The dirt road is gone!!
February 2021, updates:
Maitland Bike Route
Maitland is doing a good job enhancing its biking experience,
with a well-marked network of Bike Routes
that makes navigating easy. We mapped out a 5-mile loop,
mostly along the posted Bike Routes, that packs a lot into its
length including 5 city parks. A big addition is the East-West
Connector (under construction) which includes a bridge
over I-4 that will link the east and west sides of town.
December 2020, new trail added:
Bumby Path - Orlando
Multi-use path from E. Colonial Drive to Corrine Drive, part of
the Orlando Bicycle Beltway. Crosses the connector route between
Cady Way Trail and Orlando Urban Trail.
December 2020, updates:
Sanford Riverwalk, trail
We viewed the new construction underway from Central Florida Hospital
to Monroe Rd. where the Riverwalk connects to the
Cross Seminole Trail, part of the
Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail. Separated
from West Seminole Blvd. by a wide buffer and curbside
parking, roundabouts will also help calm the traffic.
November 2020, updates:
Cross Seminole Trail through Winter Springs
We visited from the SR434 bridge, to Layer Elementary School.
There's a new trailhead at Winter Springs Town Center, providing
parking and access to amenities at the Town Center. New
residential construction along the route was notable. Along SR
434, the trees have matured nicely providing welcome shade.
