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.
The Pine Hills Trail is being developed in three phases: the first phase begins at Alhambra Drive and extend north to Silver Star Road, including a spur trail that connects with Barnett Park. Phase 1 opened on October 18, 2017.
The second phase will begin at Silver Star Road and extend north to the Clarcona-Ocoee Road; and phase three will begin at Clarcona-Ocoee Road and extend north to the Seminole-Wekiva Trail at the Orange-Seminole County line.
The remaining portion of the Pine Hills Trail would extend from Alhambra Drive south to State Road 50, making the connection to the Shingle Creek Trail; this could be included in the phase 2 or phase 3 project. For more information, visit this web page.
