Great walk for me and my roommates dog!! Pretty little view although it does not go fully in a circle there is a dead end and then you come back. Great fresh air, Ongoin construction

nice, mostly paved trail through College Park/Winter Park area. passes by museums and the science center. crosses a few streets, 2-3 busy ones, but it has great views and shade.
from a little business area, to the cultural area, to a residential neighborhood.
wouldn't run it at night but great for a day time run then stop in Winter Park for a post run snack.

Boring trail. Very little wildlife. Some birds, crab shells and not much else.

This trail is flat but very open. Lots of high grass and cactus to have to navigate around. We saw a lot more wildlife on the Blackpoint Drive in than we did on this trail. I would not consider this trail kid-friendly due to the heat and the cactus and high grasses. The parts closest to the parking area are fairly hard packed, but the back part of the loop did have high grasses; and multiple washouts. I"m sure the hurricanes this summer have effected the maintenance schedule which probably explains the high grasses that have to be navigated.

great time away from the city.

Great morning trail run! Did not see a single soul until returning to trailhead. Not as much wildlife as expected but was still beautiful!

The beginning of the trail is by far the best! I'm not sure why there are so many complaints about the power lines, easy terrain through there and this trail is tucked in an urban area. There is plenty of wildlife here, saw about 10 deer swim across Shingle Creek upstream and about 15 alligators. 3 were more on the mature side and the rest babies. Plenty of parking and moderate traffic on the trail. The back loop could have been mowed for easier biking but still a great time overall!

I love Lake Eola Park. It seems like there is always something going on. Farmers market, awareness walks, concerts and events. Park for the kids. restaurants nearby and paddle boats. An oasis in the middle of the craziness that is Orlando.

The perfect escape in Orlando! Beautiful sights and peacefulness can be found here but do come prepared with water, sunscreen, and a hat. Most of the trails have little shade and can get very hot! Also, make sure you wear shoes that you don't mind getting dirty because a lot of the ground is soft beach like sand. Part of the trail connects to Moss Park and you can find much needed trees and shade in the blue colored trail with a great dock that overlooks a lake.

I'm giving this trail a 3 star rating because the trail is heavily traveled and although the signs say no dogs, i seen atleast 10 diffrent dogs being walked on the trail. The trail head is also behind the Hunters Creek Middle School so it is closed during school hours. The only entrance in to the trail is through the school bus loop and the trail is not marked very well once you get inside the woods. Besides all of the dogs being walked on the trail, I did not see any signs of wildlife on the trail which is why I love to hike. I personally like the more secluded and thicker trails in seminole and volusia county so I probably will not waste my time going back to this trail.

They charge $4 to park and hike. The trail is literally within 50 feet of the turnpike. alot of traffic and road noise. did not see any wildlife on the trail which is why i love to hike. I will not waste my money or time on this trail again.


It's September. It's hot. It's barren of mammals. A sandy slog to see some butterflies, but I was here for the exercise, right? Took the South, then North Green Loop and added in the Blue Lake Loop, for around 6.5 miles. Came to see the Split Oak - but walked right passed it. It wasn't even marked.

Quiet except for the IOA planes heading north. My calves and hamstrings are cursing me from the sandy trails, evident on about 60% of the combined path.

Nice track, just empty of wildlife. If I had fur, I probably wouldn't be out in the sun much, either. (Did spot what appeared to be bobcat prints, along with some deer and small critters.)

Really great Florida wilderness trail! Watch out for the armadillos!

The park is right next to the highway which destroys the experience of a complete connection with the nature.

a perfect spot for a picnic
