Description

The diverse Seminole Wekiva Trail begins at the San Sebastian Trailhead in Altamonte Springs and continues 14 miles ending at the Wekiva River. It was built over the former Orange Belt Railway, at one time the longest railroad in the country. From Altamonte Springs the trail begins across a pleasant wooden bridge at the San Sebastian Prado trailhead. The first 7 miles traverse quiet residential neighborhoods and lush woods. Draped with Spanish moss, the tree canopy provides welcome shade. Two miles in you'll reach the ball fields and open park space of the Seminole County Softball Complex. Stop by for a variety of recreational activities at multiple park facilities or for lunch or coffee before entering the new tunnel crossing State Road 434. Continue through Jones Trailhead, beautifully canopied neighborhood areas, pastures and open space before visiting Heathrow for dining or shopping. Continue through Heathrow's high-tech corridor to colonial Town Plaza for entertainment, dining, and nightlife! Just past Mile Marker 9, a spur trail on the right leads east to a pedestrian bridge over I-4 before joining the Cross-Seminole Trail. The final 4 miles of the Seminole-Wekiva mirror the peaceful wooded areas that began the trail. At trail's end, the Markham Road trailhead offers ample parking and restroom facilities.
