"Hey. Does anyone recommend any (safe) walking/running trails in Orlando? I usually walk at Blanchard Park and love it, but the scenery is starting to get old. I don't mind driving up to 30 minutes from the Union Park area. Thanks a lot!"
Baldwin park has a nice trail. Although it could get a bit busy.
Cross Seminole trail. The trailhead is just off 417 And 434.
If you are used to Blanchard Park, you would like Cady Way Trail. Like Blanchard, its out and back. Best starting point is Wards Park in WP. Parking at wards, you can head towards Baldwin Park , ~3 miles, then connect Baldwin for ~2.5 miles before heading back. many more choices from there... Google maps is your friend. Happy running.
Seminole Wekiva trail in the Longwood/Lake Mary area!
You should check out AllTrails if you haven’t before! You can see photos, reviews / ratings, length, etc. and there’s a filter for trail running.
Mead gardens has a pretty decent paved walking trail. I love Mead gardens so it’s hard for me to recommend it to people because I hate it being crowded.
West Orange Trail might be a bit over 30 minutes for you, but it's a active, paved trail that stretches 20+ miles from Claremont to Apopka. The parts running through Oakland and Downtown Winter Garden are beautiful.
Black Bear Wilderness is a great one up in Sanford. It's a 7 mile loop but it's almost all in the shade. Got a lot of tree roots and what not to get around so it's a bit more of a challenge than just a paved one or normal trail if that's what you're looking for.
Feel free to share your recommendation here!
