One of the City of Orlando’s main priorities is creating a safe and comfortable environment for all users of the trail network. Please view the information below about safe trail usage techniques.
Be Respectful and Courteous
All users of the trail should be respectful and courteous to each other. Be aware of your surroundings.
Slowing or Stopping
When slowing down or stopping please move off of the trail. Be sure other users of the trail are aware of your movements.
Ride in a consistent and predictable manner. This helps reduce the chance of an accident.
Keep to the Right
Stay on the right half of the trail while riding, except when passing.
Trails Are Not for Racing
The way the trail network was engineered/designed it creates travel speed limits. If your travel speed exceeds these limits you have become a danger to other trail users.
Obey All Traffic Signs and Signals
Follow the rules of the road and be cautious while using any trail.
Pass on the Left
Pass other trail users on the left. Before passing give the proper hand signal to alert users that are behind you. After signaling verify there is ample room for you to pass and return to the right side of the trail. When passing children or animals give extra room due to unpredictability.
Use Lights and Sounds
Use lights whether you are riding or walking on the trail. Lights make you more visible to other trail users and help reduce accidents.
When passing another user give a signal by using your voice, bell or horn before passing. Be sure the user you are passing has acknowledged your warning.
Wear a Helmet
Properly wearing a helmet when cycling on the trail network can save your life. Always remember to wear a helmet when riding your bicycle.
Be Considerate of Private Property
The trail network is public property, however adjacent to the trail is private property. Please respect the rights of private property owners and be good neighbors.
Alcohol and Drug Use is Prohibited
Do not use the trail if you are under the influence of alcohol or drugs. Any use can impair your judgment and cause injury to yourself or others.
Do Not Litter
Please do not leave plastic, aluminum cans, glass, paper or any other garbage on or near the trail. There are various trash receptacles along the trail.
