We’ve been watching this huge bike path expand from our home on the eastern end over the last seven years.
The project utilized existing paved bike lanes and enlarged them to provide vital links that allow more people to access them.
It isn’t a stand-alone undertaking, and it connects to a broader network of bike trails that run throughout Florida.
We’ve provided extensive summaries with maps and mileages for each of the portions we’ve been on it.
While it is still a work in progress, with one difficult gap in the center, the C2C is an excellent cycling destination.
Between the linear rides presently available at the east and west ends of this bike route, there are roughly 30 miles of the missing bikeway.
Riders who wish to do it all at once must either explore a route on rural roads to bridge the gap or arrange a shuttle.
A different property manager oversees each bike path that makes up the Florida Coast to Coast Trail.
Each leg has its own set of signs, mile markers, and amenities like seats, drinking fountains, and bike maintenance stations.
For specific guidelines and contact information, please view the details for individual portions via the links below.
Details on the Ride
These are the bike paths that make up the Florida Coast to Coast Trail’s entire route from east to west. All of the bike trails are paved.
Others were built to supply a portion of the C2C route and are only used for a fraction of their overall length.
The mileage listed under each segment below only applies to the C2C component of that bike path.
When we give Learn More buttons, they usually go to entire explanations of the bike path, not just the C2C section.
The Mileage part of this page includes an overall mileage chart of the C2C with significant stops along the way.
The Brevard Coast to Coast Trail connects the towns of Brevard and Cocoa Beach.
17.1 kilometers. The Brevard Coast to Coast Trail, which began at the Indian River Lagoon and ended at the Indian River Lagoon, was developed specifically as part of the C2C.
It runs through Titusville’s downtown area. Once it leaves Mims, it travels north in a forested corridor with no road crossings for the first seven kilometers.
The East Central Regional Rail Trail runs across the heart of the state.
The distance is 19.7 miles. While the ECRRT follows the original railroad line from New Smyrna Beach to Enterprise, the 1.5-mile Maytown Spur connects to the Brevard Coast to Coast Trail.
This allows C2C cyclists to follow the ECRRT from the Brevard/Volusia boundary to Green Springs Park, where it neatly merges with the Spring to Spring Trail.
The Trail from Spring to Spring
The distance is 7.5 miles. The Spring to Spring Trail, a cycling trail that connects the springs of Volusia County, begins its westerly course at Green Springs Park.
It passes beneath Interstate 4 and arrives at Gemini Springs, the chain’s second spring. At the trailhead at US 17/92, the Spring to Spring Trail comes to a T junction.
The C2C continues south via Gemini Addition to Lake Monroe Park, passing through a protected corridor with no traffic crossings.
A dedicated part of the bridge over the St. Johns River swoops through the park’s campground and carries riders to the county line.
Seminole Trail is a trail that runs through the state of Florida.
The distance is 5.9 miles. The C2C becomes the Cross Seminole Trail (previously the Rinehart Trail) in Sanford after crossing the St. Johns River and leaving Volusia County.
Because it is a side lane through a bustling urban commercial district. It is one of the more risky pieces to ride because it is intersected by dozens of driveways into businesses and restaurants.
A spur of the path meets the Seminole Wekiva Trail near Rinehart Rd in Lake Mary, where it spans Interstate 4 on a flashy bike/ped bridge into an office park.
Wekiva Seminole Trail
12.6 kilometers. The route has its green corridor paralleling major roadways, with access to hotels and restaurants south from the Interstate 4 bridge junction.
Paint the Trail is a mile of pop art murals painted by a local artist in a shaded residential path.
The Trail technically finishes at the San Sebastian trailhead after 9.8 miles; however, our mileage includes the Altamonte Springs to Rose Ave. Connection path.
Pine Hills Gap is a place in the United States where you can
4 kilometers. While a “Pine Hills Trail” is mentioned in C2C planning documents, there is no proof that it exists.
It may run parallel to Pine Hills Rd, which is also part of this urban gap. For more on using walkways to bridge this gap, see our Gaps section below.
Clarcona-Ocoee Trail is a trail that connects the cities of Clarcona and Oco.
2.5 kilometers. The Clarcona-Ocoee Trail, a sidewalk along the north side of Clarcona Ocoee Rd, is an important urban connection that runs through homes and subdivisions.
It merges with the West Orange Trail westbound just before Clarke Rd.
The West Orange Trail is located in West Orange, New Jersey.
12.4 kilometers. The West Orange Trail, one of the area’s older and more well-established bike lanes, includes numerous trailheads and services along its C2C path.
It continues westward in a shadowy corridor to the Orange/Lake county line, passing straight through the heart of downtown Winter Garden in front of the Edgewater Hotel.
The South Lake Trail is a popular hiking route in the area.
12.6 kilometers. At Killarney Station, the West Orange Trail meets the South Lake Trail in a seamless transition.
When the tree canopy vanishes, you’ll notice the difference. Subdivisions have taken the place of orange groves that formerly crowned the rolling hills.
The Trail runs from the beachfront of downtown Clermont to Lake Minneola, then through a vast preserve before abruptly stopping in front of a neighborhood.
