St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop


Seaworld Orlando - details / Tabs



The St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop is forming through a five-county upper east-central region bounded north and south by St. Augustine, America’s oldest continuous city, and Titusville, gateway to the Kennedy Space Center, although the route itself is chiefly rural. The Loop further historically connects a St. Johns River site once visited by John James Audubon, and country museums with their collections of steamboats, lighthouse keeping, and catch-all Florida memorabilia. Of the route's 260 miles, 51 are currently paved and traffic free and are already popular. One woodland section links springs along its namesake Spring-to-Spring Trail, including Gemini Springs County Park and DeLeon Springs State Park. Connecting to the Spring-to-Spring Trail is the first completed section of the East Central Regional Rail Trail. Passing directly along the beaches is the Flagler County A1A Bike Path. Another section, the Palatka to St. Augustine State Trail, traverses agricultural countryside. Additional highlights of the route include a restaurant in DeLeon Springs where guests prepare their own pancakes at griddles built into their tables, and the main campus of Stetson University in downtown DeLand, which also like Palatka, is a small-town county seat accessible by Amtrak. The route is also wildflower profuse in spring and fall.

I've seen construction in process at the end of Blue Springs and have been curious as to what is going on. Now that I know there is a trail, I'm very excited and I can't wait to try it out! For several years I've tried to get my family out doors more and this is just the out door adventure we need!
