Spring-to-Spring Trail

The paved Spring-to-Spring Trail is a continually improving multi-use trail in Volusia County, about 25 miles west of Daytona Beach. The trail is so-named because it connects several springs in the central Florida area north of Orlando. Many sections of the trail are wooded, skirting numerous inland parks.

Overall, the trail is planned to be 26 miles from DeLeon Springs Park south to Green Springs Park (and connection to the East Central Regional Rail Trail). Today, there are ~20 completed miles, shown in this overview map, divided into three sections, from north to south.

Chuck Lennon Park to Square Dog Park. 6 miles. Northern terminus of the trail is currently at Chuck Lennon Park, near DeLeon Springs Park. The southern end of this section, at Square Dog Park, is just off Rt. 44 and is the closest access point to Daytona Beach, 20 miles to the east. There’s a parking lot here.  There’s a 2-3 mile gap in the trail between Square Dog Park to where it picks up again in Lake Beresford Park. MAP

Lake Beresford Park to Blue Spring State Park (French Ave.). 5.3 miles. And then another 2.4 miles south of Blue Spring State Park, also referred to as the Lake Beresford Pathway. Very nice section, mainly wooded, passing through two parks. MAP  Add-on: 2 mile loop around Lake Bersford Park.

Lake Monroe to Green Springs Park. 8.1 miles. Pick up the western section at Lake Monroe Park, just off I-4. One of our favorite sections is the 3.2 miles east to Gemini Springs Park (parking), along the Pat Northey Pathway. From Gemini Springs Park, it’s 5 miles east to Green Springs Park (0.4 mile spur to De Bary Hall Historic Site), along the DeBary Pathway and the Green Springs Pathway. At Green Springs Park, connect to the East Central Regional Rail Trail for even more miles!  MAP
