The 2.9-mile trail segment runs from Benson Junction Road to West Highbanks Road at Rob Sullivan Park. With this new segment, Volusia County has completed 23.9 miles of the Spring-to-Spring Trail. When complete, it will stretch 27.2 miles from DeLeon Springs State Park to Green Springs Park. The Spring-to-Spring Trail is part of the partially completed 260-mile St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop, which travels through Volusia, Flagler, Brevard, St. Johns and Putnam counties.

The trail segment was overseen and completed by Volusia County and was built with $282,613 in Volusia ECHO funds and $2,842,818 provided by the Florida Department of Transportation and SUNTrail grants. The contractors were Halifax Paving, which constructed the trail segment, and DRMP, which provided construction engineering and inspection services.
