Get your green on for another trail tour of NE Orlando on St. Patricks day! The tour will begin and end at the Dean Road entrance of the Econ Greenway Trail, AKA - Jay Blanchard park. This will be a trail skate/bike covering FOUR east Orlando trails with sections of street to make the connections from Trail to Trail. This route will included some of the smoothest pavement Orlando has to offer!
The basic route will be 33 miles but there will be out & back options at 3 points on the course to increase mileage if desired. Here are the possible extensions:
The Baldwin trail loop - Add 3 miles
Cross Seminole to Winter Springs - Add 10 miles
Cady Way to Fashion Square End - Add 5 miles
These are round trip mileages so you can easily shorten these distances if you wish to lessen the mileage.
PLEASE plan your start and finish accordingly if you do not wish to participate in the entire loop. There are no short cuts on this course but there will be opportunities for extended breaks if you do not wish to participate in the mileage extension routes. We will attempt to complete the course within 3hrs depending on the additional routes or extended breaks.
We'll roll out around 9:45am. This will be a moderately paced tour averaging 13-15mph with faster paces along clear uninterrupted sections of the trails. Follow this link to see the basic route starting from the Dean Road parking lot. This does not include the Baldwin trail loop or the additional mileage possible.
