The Trails Master Plan Virtual Public Outreach Meeting #2
is online at www.OcflTrailsPlan.com
now through Tuesday, May 25. The purpose of this study was to develop a safe, scenic and visitor-friendly system of trails and provide outdoor recreation and active transportation options. Explore the virtual meeting room, which presents the results of the survey completed in September 2020 and maps of the overall trail system and individual trails: Avalon Trail, Cady Way Trail, Clarcona-Ocoee Connector Trail, Horizon West Trail, Innovation Way Trail, Lake Apopka Loop Trail, Little Econ Greenway, Pine Hills Trail, Shingle Creek Trail and West Orange Trail.
A construction detour will be in place beginning March 12 until further notice. The trail will be closed between Goldenrod Road and Arcadia Acres Park, with the detour via Liverpool Boulevard and Lady Frances Way. Signs will be in place for directions.
This paved trail extends 7.4 miles from the intersection of Alafaya Trail and Lokanotosa Trail, through Jay Blanchard Park, to Forsyth Road. The Trail features riverside recreation, picnicking, wildlife watching and canoe trails. There is available parking/access areas at Jay Blanchard Park, Econ Soccer Complex, Arcadia Acres and on Harrel Road, just north of Colonial Drive. There is also a paved trailhead on the north side of S.R. 50, just east of Goldenrod Road. The LEG will eventually extend 10 miles linking the University of Central Florida to the Cady Way Trail, then to the Cross Seminole Trail system, through the city of Oviedo and back to Blanchard Park.
