Little Econ Trail

Riding along the Little Econ Trail with its 4.6-miles of tree planted, picnic-benched, river lined, wading bird festooned trail one would think they were having a wilderness experience - one would think. One who hasn’t been in the wilderness before would think. I can’t imagine anyone short of a life-long New York City resident will mistake this trail for one in Montana or Alaska - it’s nowhere near that level of rural royalty, but it is a beautiful green linear oasis in an otherwise insipid strip mall sprawl landscape. The Little Econ Trail is one of many paved multi-use trails in and around metro Orlando, Florida. Needless to say, any greenway, park or relief from suburban sprawl is a welcome respite.

Trail Snapshot

Trail:

  • The existing Little Econ Trail is 4.6 miles long, paved surface.

Difficulty:

  • Easy/Novice

Rating:

  • 2.75 bikes out of 5 for a short distance that has good scenery and varied recreational opportunity. A very enjoyable, if not short ride. If I were rating only trails of less than 5 miles in length, I would give this one a 4 out of 5. Update: Trail now has 10 more miles connecting to UCF and currently is close to connecting to the Cady Way Trail.

Thumbs Up and Down

Thumbs up:

  • Surprisingly "rural" feel to a trail so close to lots of development
  • Loads of restaurant choices within an easy biking (or driving) distance from the Goldenrod Road trail head off of SR 50
  • Plenty of benches and rest areas
  • Scenery and wildlife viewing are nice
  • Only one intersection interrupts the trail

Thumbs down:

  • Lacks shade over most parts - could be hot during summer

Nuts & Bolts

Access and trailheads:

Goldenrod Road terminus: From I-4 - exit at Colonial Drive/SR 50 (83B), travel 6.4 miles east along SR 50. Trail is on the north side just passed Goldenrod Road.
