Orlando Area Water Activities

Blue Spring State Park

Discover the largest spring on the St. Johns River for yourself as you paddle, swim, fish, snorkel and scuba with friends or family. Remember to take a break from the water to walk the accessible Pine Island Boardwalk Trail as well! Picnic pavilions, boat rides and self-guided tours of an historic 1872 house may also be available. Learn More.

Wekiva Springs State Park

Spend time at the start of the majestic, 72-degree Wekiva River for all kinds of exciting water-based activities, from swimming and snorkeling, to canoeing and kayaking. Thirteen miles of wooded trails surround the water, offering plenty to see and do from dawn to dusk! Learn More.

Silver Springs State Park

Experience a true Florida wonder — a glass-bottom boat ride at Silver Springs! In addition to stunning underwater views, the park itself offers several different areas for swimming, picnicking, hiking, biking, kayaking, canoeing, horseback riding and bird-watching. An ornamental garden and delicious restaurant round out the long list of reasons to make this natural wonder a priority. Learn More.

Three Sisters Springs

Visit during Manatee Season for the opportunity to swim with these gentle giants in Crystal River, Florida! As one of the only places in the entire state to offer this opportunity, these springs are worth the drive. While snorkeling and swimming are permitted year-round, diving and paddle craft are only allowed after March when the manatees have departed. Learn More.

Orlando Area Hiking & Biking Trails

The Florida Trail

Be part of something bigger than yourself — 1,300 miles bigger to be exact! This National Scenic Trail spans our entire state, including Central Florida and Kissimmee. Part of the same trail system as the famed northern Appalachian Trail, this beautiful true-Florida route is maintained by proud community volunteers. Learn More.

Spring to Spring Trail

Walk, jog or bike along this scenic asphalt and boardwalk trail, spanning Orlando to Daytona. Along the way, you’ll pass plenty of native wildlife, majestic trees, tranquil lakes, historic neighborhoods, and even a few State Parks. Be sure to check the map to chart out your path in advance, as a few of these gorgeous trail segments have yet to be connected. Learn More.

Orlando Urban Biking Trail

Enjoy this asphalt path on a leisurely ride through the heart of the city, passing lakes, museums and the downtown area between Loch Haven Park and Gaston Edwards Park. Learn More.

Santos Mountain Bike Park

Join riders of all levels as you navigate everything from wide, flat trails to 20-foot drops! For even more springtime fun, check out the Ocala Mountain Bike Association’s Santos Fat Tire Festival (3/9—11) which will feature a group ride, special performances, and the chance to test drive some of the newest bikes on the market. Learn More.

Alafia River State Park

Put Florida riding to the test! This trail system and its sister — Boyette Scrub Preserve — are widely considered to be the best spots for mountain biking. Carved out of old phosphate mines, both offer the kinds of steep drops and hilly climbs even veteran bikers crave. Learn More.
