Where to Ride Now
Although there are still some incomplete sections there are many long completed green sections of the Loop that feature beautiful scenery, amazing state, county and local parks, springs, beaches and waterways with fascinating history and great experiences.
It’s a Loop, so of course you can start anyplace. We describe the Loop running clockwise (i.e. north then west) following the path of our sister trail the Coast to Coast Trail from Titusville to DeBary.
At DeBary just beyond Gemini Springs the two trails split at a spot we can Florida’s Trail Hub. The Coast to Coast branches Southwest to St Petersburg while the Loop continues west then heads north to Palatka, east to St Augustine and the south along the coast back to Titusville.
The pages at the links below empahsize long (20 miles or more) completed sections of the Loop. Although there may be some remaining gaps in these sections most are easily navigated by experienced riders. We recommend that casual riders, or those with children, stay on completed trail sections (shown in green on most maps).
