Event Date(s)

Volusia County residents and visitors now have 20 more miles of trails on which to walk, jog, skate, bicycle and commune with nature.

The Volusia County Council will cut the ribbon for the newest Volusia County trail phase at 8:30 a.m. Friday, Sept. 21, in the trail parking lot at 2200 Cow Creek Road, a half mile south of State Road 442, Edgewater.

The 20.2-mile phase includes two segments: one that runs from Gobblers Lodge Road to Maytown Spur Road, and another that extends from the Brevard County line north to Cow Creek, where it connects to existing trail and the pedestrian overpass on State Road 442.

With the completion of this segment, Volusia County has 58.7 miles of trails that stretch through cities and rural areas. This $16.1 million project, funded by the Florida Department of Transportation, is part of the East Central Regional Rail Trail, the Coast to Coast Trail, and the St. Johns River to Sea Loop.
