Spring to Spring Section of the St Johns River-to-Sea Loop

The Spring to Spring Trail section of the St Johns River-to-Sea Loop runs from Green Springs Volusia County Park to DeLeon Springs State Park on the northeast end, passing Lake Monroe and Gemini Springs Parks and Blue Spring State Park and along the route.  26 miles long – 30 if you add the lovely spur to Lake Monroe Park.  Beautiful and shady.  This is one of the most scenic rides in Florida with many trailheads and multiple options for camping and picnicking.  You can swim at DeLeon Springs State Park and (in non-manatee season) at Blue Spring State Park ($2 bike entry fee or get the Florida State Park annual pass).

Green sections indicate completed sections. 
Brown sections are incomplete and may not be ridable.
A note about color coding:

In many of our maps (except the Ride with GPS Maps) completed trail sections are indicated with green.  In most maps incomplete sections are indicated with either gray (as in the map above) brown, or multi-colored based on FDOT’s color coding scheme.  The NON-GREEN sections do not indicate ride-able routes -they indicate in work sections. In our “Ride With GPS” Maps,  to be more consistent with normal use, completed sections are indicated in RED.   SUGGESTED interim on-road routes are indicated in BLUE.  These on-road routes are only suggested for experienced riders.

As can be seen, there are two remaining gaps: 

  • The Beresford Gap:  Grand Ave and Minnesota Ave to Lake Beresford Park– estimated for completion in 2024  
  • The Donald E. Smith Gap:  from Highbanks Road to DeBary Plantation Blvd  –  due for completion in 2024

Experienced riders who do not mind a few miles on roads can enjoy a mostly-trail experience along the Spring to Spring Trail section of the Loop from DeLeon Springs to Green Springs and beyond
