Two bridges - over busy SR434 and at Mitchell Hammock Road - are a plus. A portion of the trail is designated as part of the Florida National Scenic Trail. Oviedo's downtown chickens are a reminder of the town's rural roots; Oviedo can look to Winter Garden for a model of downtown redevelopment around a bicycle trail. Winter Springs should look into better signage drawing riders from the trail through Winter Springs Town Center rather than around it! See full description and more photos here.

End Points: Orlando to Oviedo to Lake Mary; parking at Rinehart Road and Lake Mary Blvd, Big Tree Park, Black Hammock Trailhead, downtown Oviedo, Winter Springs Town Center, Goldenrod Park.
