Shingle Creek Trail at Kissimmee Lakefront Park

From the Marina at Kissimmee Lakefront Park running south is a new section connecting to the Shingle Creek Regional Trail. Ultimately, this will be extended to connect to the western sections of the trail at Steffee Landing, etc. Leaving the Marina, a path runs along both sides of Lakeview Drive, then they converge at a cycle track. The track runs along Lakeview Drive to Clyde Ave. (about 900 feet), where the Shingle Creek Regional Trail begins. Shingle Creek Regional Trail then continues alongside Clyde St. for about 1/4 mile before turning off through a natural area along Lake Toho, over a boardwalk, and continuing to the temporary trail end (about a mile).

History, Information and Resources

About Shingle Creek:

Shingle Creek was named in the late 19th century after the cypress trees that lined the bank, which were used to make wood shingles. Beginning in south Orange County, the creek forms the northernmost headwaters of the Everglades. Flowing into Lake Tohopekaliga (Lake Toho), it continues down the Kissimmee Chain of Lakes to Lake Okechobee and then the Everglades.The creek and surrounding area are protected wetlands due to their importance to Everglades restoration efforts.
