West Orange Trail
Spanning more than 20 miles from Winter Garden to Apopka, this paved trail is a local favorite for jogging, biking, in-line skating, or just plain strolling on a pleasant day. Kick off your adventure at the Killarney Station, which features facilities like restrooms, water fountains, a playground, and a bike shop where you can rent wheels by the hour or day. Once on your way, look out for interesting landmarks such as the old railway bridge that goes over the Florida Turnpike, and the farm that houses cattle, zebras, and ostriches. Just be sure to bring along a backpack loaded with plenty of water and sunscreen.
