Public Meeting: Shingle Creek Trail - Phase 4
  • Take the Orange County Trail Survey.
  • Orange County Parks and Recreation and District 6 Commissioner Mike Scott will host a public meeting on Thursday, June 13, 6:30-7:30 p.m. at Barnett Park - Dolphin Room, 4801 West Colonial Drive, Orlando, to present information on Shingle Creek Trail - Phase 4. This proposed connection will begin at the Pine Hills Trail, cross Colonial Drive and connect with the City of Orlando’s portion of the Shingle Creek Trail. Questions? Email parks@ocfl.net.

The Pine Hills Trail is being developed in three phases: the first phase begins at Alhambra Drive and extend north to Silver Star Road, including a spur trail that connects with Barnett Park. Phase 1 opened on October 18, 2017.

The second phase will begin at Silver Star Road and extend north to the Clarcona-Ocoee Road; and phase three will begin at Clarcona-Ocoee Road and extend north to the Seminole-Wekiva Trail at the Orange-Seminole County line.

The remaining portion of the Pine Hills Trail would extend from Alhambra Drive south to State Road 50, making the connection to the Shingle Creek Trail; this could be included in the phase 2 or phase 3 project. For more information, visit this web page.
