I got to the walking trail a few times a week and it's very nice, but there was a body found in the middle of the wooded area, so I'm not sure if I will be coming around so often. Just watch out for wild life if you do go.

This is the first bike trail I have found that I love since moving away from the Cady Way Bike Trail in Winter Park. I love the shady trail with lots of wildlife to see while walking or riding my bike. It has a small trail that circles around the restrooms, picnic area and playground. Great for small kids to...

A plethora of trials of different terrains. Has a playground too. Other nice places for options to hike nearby: Saint Francis and Hontoon. Enjoy.

I bike here every day now! It is great. However, you have to watch out for children and dogs and adults who don't observe safety common sense rules (like being on one side of the path & their dog on the other with the leash stretched across the path!!!), especially on weekends, and black bears near the turn around in...

Not so amazing for tourists. It's a nice spot but not worth making a special trip. The walking loop is not on the lake and you can hear traffic off the main Rd when you're walking. The access to the lake is also average. I have found much nicer spots around.

Beresford Park has both a loop and a wide biking/walking trail that goes all the way to Blue Spring State Park. The paths are wide, smoothly paved, and mostly in the shade of a gorgeous tree canopy. I've seen many types of birds, butterflies, turtles and other wildlife. It's quiet and serene, and has basic services like restrooms and drinking... More

My husband and daughter love rollerblading here. I like the nice 2 mile loop to walk. It's a great place to walk the dog too. We have seen deer, rabbits, turtles, eagles, etc., on our visits here.

What a nice place. One can either ride to or transport bikes to this wonderful bike path which goes both directions and the round trip is about eight miles. Very pretty trail with plenty of shade for the younger kids too. Safe to ride whether one is an accomplished cyclist or a duffer. No concessions, though, so bring water and... More

What a great park! They have 2 trails one is smaller around 2 miles and the other is 3.3 miles of rolling hills! This is part of the spring to spring trail, this runs to Blue Springs. It is shaded and you run with rail road tracks. We saw deer, a huge wild boar and bear crap on the trail... More
