Florida bike trails, Orlando Biking, Orange County biking, Cady Way TrailFlorida bike trails, Orlando Biking, Orange County biking, Cady Way Trail

The 7.5 mile Cady Way Trail runs from the Seminole County line at Howell Branch/Hall Road, over a bridge at busy SR436, to Winter Park's Cady Way Park. Skirting Baldwin Park, it continues to Orlando's Fashion Square Mall, then on to the trail end at Lake Druid Park. (Detailed map and photos below.)

This Central Florida biking trail passes through various urban and suburban areas, some industrial areas, and parks, with a link to the planned community of Baldwin Park. At its northern end, the trail connects with the 23-mile Cross Seminole Trail, which connects to the 17-mile Seminole-Wekiva Trail. A future link will connect to the Little Econ Greenway. An on-road route to the Orlando Urban Trail has also been mapped out. There are shelters, benches, and water fountains located along the trail. Oak canopy over some portions help keep it cool.

Comments by Mudfish: The links to the Cross Seminole Trail and Baldwin Park make this a "Destination" trail. The long straight-away bridge over SR 436 is a fun change-of-pace (and work-out) for us Florida flatlanders. Downtown Baldwin Park offers food, drink.
Start of Cady Way Trail to SR436 bridge
Cady Way Trail starts at and connects to the Cross Seminole Trail where Aloma Avenue (SR426) crosses Hall Road/Howell Branch Road. From the start of the trail at Hall Road/Howell Branch is a short ride along Aloma Avenue to Goldenrod Park (parking, restrooms, water, playground, recreation center). Three busy intersections are between Goldenrod Park and the SR436 bridge: Goldenrod Road, SR551 and Forsyth Road - this section includes a heavily industrial area that is the least scenic on the trail. The 685-foot bridge spanning busy SR436 is at mile marker (MM) 1.9.

Cady Way Park to Baldwin Park
From Cady Way Park to Baldwin Park is a quiet, residential section with more trees and some of the best shaded areas of the trail. At Baldwin Park Rd. (MM 4.1), a spur to the right goes to the Lake Baldwin Trail, and to the left is the start of the Little Econ Greenway (this segment ends at SR436, a gap needs to be completed to the LEG at Forsyth Road). Continuing around Baldwin Park (Cady Way Trail skirts the community, not through it), a second spur at Lake Baldwin Lane (MM 5.8) leads to the Lake Baldwin Trail.

Baldwin Park to Fashion Square
Crossing Lake Baldwin Lane at Roush Road, the trail continues to skirt Baldwin Park, passing Lake Gear. It crosses Bennett Road and continues to the trailhead located behind Fashion Square Mall at McCullough Road. (Note: The section around Fashion Square is not well marked, if you're coming from Maguire Blvd. and turn onto McCullough, the mall will be on the right and the trailhead is to the left. If you get to the post office, you went too far.)

This section runs from Fashion Square Mall along McCullough Road to the business park along Maguire Blvd. and Warehouse Road, to the trail end at Lake Druid Park, which includes Orlando's first mountain bike park (see more below). Watch for construction at the Fashion Square Trailhead; the parking lot is torn up and path to McCulloch bumpy. We'll monitor the construction and report as conditions change. (Reported: Sept. 2017)
