Bicycling in West Volusia

Showcase Multi-use Trails

You’ll discover a different side of Florida on our trails,  which wind through small friendly communities, along  the magnificent St. Johns River and through many beautiful parks.
The West Volusia County region has two multi-use trail systems: the Spring to Spring Trail and 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.
These large trail systems are part of an even larger trail: The St. Johns River to Sea Loop – which is still in development, and will be a cyclist’s dream.
