Shingle Creek Trail

Osceola County Line to Sand Lake Road

Location

The Orange County portion of the Shingle Creek Trail (SCRT) is approximately 12.1 miles long including an existing 1.1 mile section in Hunters Creek. The trail continues north through the City of Orlando for 4 miles and south through the Osceola County and City of Kissimmee.

Description

In April of 2011, President Obama launched America’s Great Outdoors initiative that saw the Department of the Interior selecting the Shingle Creek Trail to receive national recognition in a document titled “America’s Great Outdoors Fifty State Report.” This multi-use recreational trail is being developed through cooperation of local governments including Orange County, Osceola County, City of Orlando, and City of Kissimmee.

The Orange County portion of the Shingle Creek Trail (SCRT) is approximately 12.1 miles long including an existing 1.1 mile section in Hunters Creek. The trail continues north through the City of Orlando for 4 miles and south through the Osceola County and City of Kissimmee.

The trail is split into 3 phases, with phase 1 being split into multiple segments.

  • Phase 1: Sand Lake Rd to Taft-Vineland Rd
    • Segment 1: Sand Lake Rd to Destination Pkwy
    • Segment 2: Destination Pkwy to SR 528
    • Segment 3: SR 528 to Taft-Vineland Rd
  • Phase 2: Taft-Vineland Rd to Town Loop Blvd.
  • Phase 3: Town Loop Blvd to Osceola County Line
  • Purpose

    When fully constructed, Shingle Creek Trail will stretch 32 miles through one of Florida’s heavily urbanized metropolitan areas. This trail will become part of an extensive trail network that extends from Kissimmee to Wekiwa Springs State Park and from Orlando to Mascotte. In its entirety, it will serve as a key north-south connector in a larger regional trails network that includes the West Orange Trail, South Lake Trail, Cross Seminole Trail, and Seminole Wekiva Trail.

    Completing the Shingle Creek Trail will significantly increase outdoor opportunities for bikers and pedestrians in urban central Florida.
