Biking, walking and roller-blading are common activities on this famous trail once used as a railway line. It is not very far from Orlando. The trail goes about twenty miles. You can enter the trail in numerous places. Our favorite is at the western end known as the Killarney Station not far from the Florida Turnpike and Route 50. There... More

this has to be one of the best trails for walking, running or biking in Florida. It recently opened in Groveland, Fl. and goes past Apopka. You pass through Groveland, Clermont, Winter Garden and Apopka. Each city has places to stop and eat. Also, Clermont, Winter Garden and Apopka have comfort stations with rest rooms and water. Winter Garden has... More

I have watched the West Orange Trail develop from it's inception and think it is a great attribute to the West Orange Community---as well as the Apopka Community. I like walking my dog on the trail and entering off of Clarcona-Ocoee just behind the Buddist Temple. This area is shady for about a mile and a half and you can... More

I absolutely love this trail. In the middle of all the city hustle and bustle, a place to enjoy nature while secretly working out. I've walked, roller bladed, and biked the trail. It's all paved and has lots to see and do. Beautiful scenery that changes every mile. Even has rest stops with bathroom facilities. My favorite area is Winter... More

We visit Florida most years, and have never had an experience like this one. The trial is situated away from the hustle and bustle of Orlando, and offers quaint surroundings as you cycle through. The trial is 22 miles long in total, and a smooth ride. The trial is very well maintained, and offers places to stop for food and... More

Always well kept and maintained trail. They provide restrooms and air pumps and in some ares refreshments for the many people using the trail. One of the nicest bike trails I've ever seen. When it goes thru winter garden you will feel as if you stepped back in time. Awesome!! Many little restaurants and little ice cream shops etc...in winter... More

I enjoy riding the West Orange Trail. It is one mile from my house, and has a nice smooth surface. There is no food available for purchase on the Trail itself, but it passes several good places for a snack, such a Rita's Water Ice, and for a meal, such as The Catfish Place.

This bike trail is well-maintained, flat and has varied scenery - some wetlands and trees, some small town and commercial. We rented bikes at West Orange Trail Bikes and Blades and started our ride at Mile 0. The trail is marked with permanent distance markers laid into the path. At 5 Miles is the town of Winter Garden and just... More
