The Cady Way Trail and the Lake Baldwin Running Trail are two good options near downtown, and a good variation from the Urban Trail. The Cady Way Trail is a paved multi-use path, starting at Fashion Square Mall (3.5 miles northeast of downtown), extending for nearly 6 miles toward Winter Park, ending at Cady Way Park.
In the same area, and connecting to the Cady Way Trail, is the Lake Baldwin Running Trail. This paved path is a 2.6 mile loop around Lake Baldwin. A nice add-on is a ~1.5 mile loop around Baldwin Park, which has nice pedestrian paths and athletic facilities. You can also add another 1-2 miles by dipping south to Lake Susannah.
A good connection from the Cady Way Trail is at the 1.7 mile mark, using the Little Econ Greenway along Baldwin Park St.
- Cady Way Trail: 5.8 miles (9.3 km) one-way; Lake Baldwin & Park Loop: 4.3 miles
- Cady Way Trail south terminus is near Fashion Square Mall, north end is Cady Way Park; Baldwin Lake has numerous access points
- For Lake Baldwin, off Baldwin Ln. For Baldwin Park, use 2501 General Rees Ave Parking
