After watching the progress on the ECRRT at Osteen over the past year, John takes a ride to the east to see how far the new paved bike path goes
East Central Regional Rail Trail
Dedicated paved bike path running east-west through Volusia County, starting at Green Springs Park and connecting Osteen to Maytown. Easternmost segments are still under construction.
John explores the C2C between Osteen and the St. Johns River by starting at Lake Monroe Park and ending at Osteen, using the Spring-to-Spring and ECRRT trails through southern Volusia County
One week, 260 miles, human (and train) powered. That’s the goal of the four riders touring the East Coast Greenway and St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop on a ride that started with a trip from downtown Orlando to DeBary via SunRail on August 1.
At Green Springs Park, the shady trails are short but well-groomed, with options for all abilities. It’s an excellent destination for families to enjoy, with connectivity to two major bike trails.
Volusia County’s East Central Regional Rail Trail, or ECRRT, runs east towards the coast from Green Springs Park. This segment ended at Osteen when I biked it, but has been extended since.
