Biking Trails in Orange & Osceola Counties
Shingle Creek Regional Trail… Orange and Osceola Counties
A network of biking trails called the Shingle Creek Regional Trail are currently being planned in these counties. Some of the trails have already been completed, while others are still under constructions or being planned. Once the whole network is completed there will be about 32 miles of trails that reach from Kissimmee to Wekiva Springs State Park.
Here are some local favorites.
Kissimmee Loop (7.0 miles) and Shingle Creek (2.0 miles)
These trails link around Shingle Creek and Kissimmee. The 456-acre Shingle Creek Regional Park is a lovely oasis on Shingle Creek, at the headwaters of the Everglades.
The park also has a boat and canoe/kayak launch, outfitter, fishing dock, hiking trails, picnicking, play area, and restrooms. Several old homes from the historic Shingle Creek community are within the park and a Pioneer Village. The creek is named after the cypress trees that lined the bank in the late 19th century, which were used to make wood shingles.
Above is just a small portion of the available biking trails. Listed below are more local trails that you may want to explore.
