The East Central Regional Rail Trail is being constructed along the longest abandoned rail line every purchased in Florida. The state purchased the corridor from the Florida East Coast Railway in 2007 and turned it over to Volusia and Brevard counties for development and maintenance. When complete, the rail trail will cover 50 miles, stretching from Deltona to Edgewater with a 10-mile leg through Brevard County to Titusville. The first trail segement, which covers 5.7 miles from Providence Boulevard in Deltona to State Road 415 in Osteen, opened in early 2012. The trail is 12 feet wide and is accessible to pedestrians, bicyclists, in-line skaters and people with disabilities. Rest stops are provided along the way with benches and trash cans.

Just another urban paved bike/rollerblade path. I did see two raccoons but you'll find them near most dumpsters in Florida. I hate to sound negative but reality is reality!!

Paved, shaded, nice springs to visit along the DeBary/ Enterprise portions. Osteen dinner is right after the bridge over 415. Not rural backpacking trail. Great for family biking/ hiking.

It will be a joyous day when the entire corridor of trails is complete. For now, this segment is a beautiful little trail through a quaint area of Northeast Florida. It seems more secluded than it really is. I will reserve criticism of the trail for now, as it will be connecting to the other trails across the state. However, the lack of bathrooms or even a water fountain makes it a less-desirable trail to visit in the hotter months.

Approximately 27 mile flat (round trip) from Lake Monroe boat ramp to Osteen SR 415. Trail passes by Gemini Springs, beautiful park with many amenities. Continue on to Green Springs Park with a beautiful 76’ deep green spring but no swimming (does have restroom and drinking water). Continue on to Osteen 415 bridge (not in service yet). Trail is approximately 50% shade cover with many good vistas.

We hike these trails often, being so close to home yet seemingly remote. The scenery changes constantly and some of the wood bridges are just too cool. Be great biking trails. Check my profile for some of the track variations.

Took the wife and kids biking on the East Central Regional Rail Trail today. We had a great time! This is a beautiful trail, and the trailhead has an uniquely stunning green spring. Will definitely visit this trail again. It is great for all ages.
