East Central Regional Rail Trail... South Volusia County Biking

The East Central Regional Rail Trail when completed will total 52 miles. It currently runs 8 miles from Green Springs Park in Enterprise to Guise Road in Osteen. From Osteen, it will continue to Maytown where it splits, with segments going northeast to Edgewater (4 miles completed to date) and southeast to Titusville (4 miles completed to date). It connects to the Spring-to-Spring Trail at Green Springs Park, and will eventually be part of both the 250-mile Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail, and the 260-mile St. John’s River to Sea Loop.

COMMENTS AND PHOTOS... East Central Regional Rail Trail

Green Springs Park is a hidden gem. Get it right and old downtown Titusville could blossom. When completed and linked this will be a top Florida trail. (Note: although most of the trail is outside our BikeOrlando.net "30-mile" reach, it does start within the area so we include it here.)

We describe this trail in 3 sections, west to east:

Section 1: Green Springs Park to Maytown

Green Springs Park Trailhead

Green Springs Park serves as a trailhead and connector to the Spring-to-Spring Trail. One of a few green sulphur springs remaining, Green Springs was once popular as a health spa and is now a county park, with parking, water, picnic, playground.


Green Spring to SR415 Bridge (Osteen)

From Green Springs, the trail is mostly away from roads, with canopied sections and boardwalks over wetlands. Benches are spaced regularly along the trail, there are some crossroads and driveways but traffic is very light if any.


SR415 Bridge to Guise Road

From the trailhead at the SR415 bridge, the trail extends another 2.5 miles east to Guise Road. (August 2015).

Also from the Osteen trailhead but running south, a separate multi-use paved trail follows SR415 to Seminole County at the St. John's River. (April 2017)

Section 2: Maytown to Edgewater

SR 442 to Edgewater

From Maytown, the trail will extend northeast to the town of Edgewater. A bridge spans Route 442 near Edgewater, and the trail from the bridge to Dale Ave. is now complete (4 miles). Some well shaded sections. There are a few road crossings, the busiest at Old Mission Road. (May 2016)

Section 3: Maytown to Titusville

I-95 Trailhead to SR406 Bridge

From Maytown, the East Central Regional Rail Trail will go southeast to Titusville as part of the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail . The section from the Volusia County line to Titusville and trailhead at I-95 in Mims are under construction. A portion from I-95 in Mims to US 1 in Titusville is paved (but not yet open to traffic until this section is fully completed, estimated to be first quarter 2018). (July 2017)


SR406 Bridge to Max Brewer Bridge

An existing section of trail runs along US1 in Titusville, over a bridge at Garden St. (SR406) to Canaveral Ave. 12-foot striped bike lanes along Main Street and Indian River Avenue mark the route to the Max Brewer Bridge. (July 2017)
