Wekiwa Springs State Park - TRAIL

Wekiwa Springs State Park - Trail, Orlando, Florida

13+ miles of trails and a few camp spots can be found and Sand Lake inside Wekiwa Springs Sate park. Stick to the Big loop and avoid the Horse roads. Hills on the West, Deep woods to the North, Mud on the East, and roots to the South. Good mix.

If you follow the trail map in to marker 19 it is a decent ride but it is a mixed use trail and not that great. The best trails are marked for hikers only which, in our opinion, are tho only ones worth riding. If you follow the park map for bikes it eventually dumps you to a shared horse/bike trail, which is your only way back to trailhead. It was one of the worst trails we have seen/ridden and is at least 3 miles of unrideable sand. We chose to take the hiking trail, which is a lot longer and singletrack, a bit muddy in places, but far better than trying to ride the horse/bike catastrophe. This park is not as biker-friendly as it can/could/should be. We saw 1 hiker there. Stay far away from horse trails. Not a technical trail and pretty flat.

Its a good nature trail. No jumps and bridges, but plenty of roots to launch off of. Stick to the ouside hiking loop and away from the horse trails and fire roads. Hikers mainly stick to the front of the park, so sharing the trail is not a problem. There are a few good spots to recharge on the river. Make sure you get a Trail Guide from the gate, there are a lot of fun side trails too. Costs $3-5 dollars to get in, but worth it. Restrooms and non-potable water at Sand Lake Trail Head.

Start and Sand Lake and head NE to post #33. Go East along the East-West Trail to post #10, then head North to #19. Head through the deep woods (30min) to #20. From there head South to Big Buck Camp and maybe Otter Camp, then make your way home along the Root Highway. (you'll see). Remember stay on the hiking and bike trail, and off the Horse Trail, to much sugar sand.

This trail is horrible. Flat, same scenery, and most of the trail is a barely rideable, fire trail. Don't waste your time. It was so bad, I asked for my 3 dollars back.

Long, Sandy, Straight and flat. The first Quarter mile and last 3 miles of this trail are bearable at best, The rest of what seems like forever in the middle of this trail is just deep sand that forces you to ride over baby palms. The last part of the bike trail has some decent downhill and a sinkhole pit that has one good jump other than that it's just miles of flat boring bush to look at, cool at first boring really fast. But on a positive note the wife loved the wildlife...2 DEAR and a turtle.

the "orange blaze trails" they call them are for hiking only, but I found that they are best suited for technical riding. Don,t worry about the hikers they'll move.
