Maitland Bike Route... Orange County Neighborhood Biking

The City of Maitland has a well established network of Central Florida biking paths for shopping or commuting and has included biking and pedestrian friendly development in its master plan. The route mapped here is a fairly well-marked combination of both bike trail and bike path through parks, residential and commercial areas. This is not inclusive of all bike paths in the city - Maitland is growing its biking network and has installed 270 "wayfaring" signs marking out routes to parks, schools, and points of interest.  (Detailed map and photos below.)

COMMENTS AND PHOTOS... Maitland Bike Route

Starting at Maitland Community Park (boardwalk, playground, walking trails), ride west over the 17-92 overpass to the small tunnel at Greenwood Ave, and return. A great kid ride with more shade than most.


Lake Ave. to Maitland Ave.

The bike route starts as the Bob Sonnenberg Blue Bicycle Trail (designated route 17) at Lake Avenue across the railroad track. A short ride and over a boardwalk is Lake Lily Park (parking, restrooms, water, playground, walking trail). From the park, the trail crosses Maitland Avenue, winds behind some businesses, and ends at Packwood Avenue by the City Hall. To continue on the bike route to Maitland Community Park, turn right on Packwood and then left onto the path along Independence Lane. Cross E. Horatio Avenue, turn left and then right on Maitland Avenue (designated route 2A).


Along Maitland Ave. to Maitland Community Park

This is a busy road with no bike lanes, be aware. After about a half mile, turn right at Bridle Path (across from Sandspur Rd.) then left on Gamewell Avenue (designated route 3). The bike path runs on a residential street and then the trail picks up again at Greenwood Avenue, ride through a tunnel and you are at the 17-92 overpass. Across the overpass, the trail (route 3) continues along Mayo Avenue, over a boardwalk and into Maitland Community Park (parking, restrooms, playground, picnic area, walking/jogging trails, tennis, racquetball).


Maitland Community Park to Horatio Avenue

At Maitland Community Park, follow the "Yellow" route, across the boardwalk, to the exit. Ride on the bike path along Mohican Trail (designated route 4), then turn right where the bike trail picks up and runs between Thistle Lane and Maitland Middle and Dommerich Elementary Schools (designated route 4A). The trail again becomes a bike path on Thistle Lane, ending at Horatio Avenue (route 11).


Horatio Avenue to 17-92

This is another less pleasant section due to the heavy traffic. Turn right at Minnehaha Park (parking, restrooms, water, picnic area, playground) and follow the trail to the tunnel under Horatio. The tunnel exits to Old Horatio Road, ride under the bridge and back to Horatio. Go one block to Swoope Avenue (route 2), turn left and then right on Packwood Avenue. Cross 17-92 and one block down to the left the trail returns to Lake Lily.
