Volusia County Biking Trails
A guide to pedaling your way around Volusia County
As if the 40+ miles of hard-packed beaches weren’t already a dream for cycling enthusiasts, Volusia County also has endless trail
options. The bicycle trails offer waterfront views and a scenic look at the area’s wildlife. The Daytona Beach Area Convention & Visitor’s
Bureau recommends these three must-ride bicycle trails:
Volusia County’s Spring-to-Spring Trail got its name from linking
a number of state and county parks featuring several of Florida’s
famous natural springs.
Though easily accessible to anyone based in Daytona Beach, one
of the most scenic sections runs from Gemini Springs Park to
DeLeon Springs State Park. Or, for a slightly abbreviated version
of that same route, start about halfway in at Blue Spring State Park.
Currently, the trail is roughly 22 miles, and it is envisioned to
eventually wind even further! The extension that will complete an
uninterrupted 27-mile ride connecting Seminole and Volusia counties
is slated to be finished in mid-to-late 2019. In addition to the access
points mentioned above, main points of entry are at DeBary Hall
Historic Site, Lake Monroe Park, Lake Beresford Park and along
Grand Avenue in Glenwood (south of DeLeon Springs State Park).
Currently about halfway complete, this scenic trail is expected to
have all of its 260 miles constructed by 2020. Once finished, the
St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop will be the longest multi-use loop
trail in all of the American Southeast. In the meantime, there are
many miles to see and explore on this path.
Access a southern section of the bike trail at Gemini Springs Park
8 September/October 2019
and cruise east through miles of natural beauty. Or, you can hop
on at the trailhead at Thornby Park or Osteen Civic Center, both of
which have restrooms and parking on-site.
If you prefer to stay a little closer to Daytona Beach, hop on the
Sweetheart Trail in historic downtown Daytona Beach that winds
along the riverfront.
Ormond Beach Scenic Loop & Trail
A true can’t-miss for cycling enthusiasts and nature lovers alike,
this 34-mile double loop of roadways traverses some of the most
diverse, breathtaking natural scenery in all of coastal central Florida.
With an abundance of Spanish moss-lined passages and water
views, the Loop is the perfect way to soak in the feel of “old Florida.”
The trail offers ready access to the Atlantic Ocean; state,
county and city parks; river vistas; creeks; beaches; and historic
dwellings. You’ll encounter no stoplights or shopping centers on
this ride — just miles and miles of well-maintained, twisting and
Enter the Loop at Granada Boulevard, or follow these directions
for an abbreviated route. Note that this is not a bicycle-specific
route — it’s a two-way road that cars and motorcyclists also enjoy.
