The West Volusia County region has two multi-use trail systems: the Spring to Spring Trailand the East Central Regional Rail Trail, which are incomplete, but still offer miles of recreational enjoyment as they traverse through shaded tree canopies, open prairie, cypress swamp and magnificent vistas of pristine lakes and the St. Johns River.
When complete, the Spring to Spring Trail will stretch 26 miles from Gemini Springs Park in DeBary to DeLeon Springs State Park located in DeLeon Springs. To date, Volusia County has completed several segments. In addition, five trailheads have been built for your convenience at DeBary Hall Historic Site, Gemini Springs Park, Lake Monroe Park, Lake Beresford Park, Blue Spring State Park and along Grand Avenue in Glenwood.
The East Central Regional Rail Trail, is being constructed along the longest abandoned rail line ever purchased in Florida. When complete, the rail trail will cover 50 miles, stretching from Enterprise to Edgewater with a 10-mile leg through Brevard County to Titusville. The first completed 5.7 mile trail segment winds through green canopies of trees and unspoiled rural areas from a trail head at Green Springs Park in Deltona to State Road 415 in Osteen. The rest of the trail can be traveled by off road bicycles.
