The East Central Regional Rail Trail now extends 8 miles from Green Springs Park in Enterprise to Guise Road in Osteen, with segments open in Edgewater (4 miles) and Titusville (2 miles). Ultimately totalling 52 miles, it will comprise part of both the 250-mile Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail, and the 260-mile St. John’s River to Sea Loop. When completed, this will be a "D" (Destination) Trail. (Detailed map and photos below.)

The trail is along an abandoned rail corridor, purchased by the State of Florida and leased to Volusia and Brevard counties for trail development, the longest rail-trail conversion in Florida. It also connects to the Spring-to-Spring Trail at Green Springs Park. A 2.5 mile extension from the SR415 bridge to Guise Road opened in 2015, and the segments at Edgewater and Titusville continue to grow. (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.)

Comments by Mudfish: Green Springs Park is a hidden gem. Get it right and old downtown Titusville could blossom.
East Central Regional Rail Trail
DeBary to Osteen
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. 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. A trailhead at the SR415 15 bridge opened in 2015, plus a new 2.5 miles extension from the bridge to Guise Road. (Updated: August 2015). From the bridge, a multi-use paved trail follows SR415 south to Seminole County at the St. John's River. (Updated: April 2017)
