The City of Kissimmee is in the process of creating an expansive trail system for walkers, bikers, and runners. What makes our trail system unique is that it combines routes through the urban core of our City with stunning segments that run through seemingly untouched parts of our natural surrounding. The two main off-street paved trails in the City of Kissimmee are the Kissimmee Loop Trail and the Shingle Creek Regional Trail.

Kissimmee Loop Trail

The Kissimmee Loop Trail is a six mile off-road path that circles around the heart of the City of Kissimmee. This trail connects a large stretch of residential neighborhoods with Downtown Kissimmee, the Kissimmee Medical Arts District, and the Shingle Creek Regional Trail. The Kissimmee Loop Trail runs along canals, tree-lined pathways, forest covered areas, and the John Young Parkway Pedestrian bridge.

Shingle Creek Regional Trail

Shingle Creek is at the headwaters of the Florida Everglades and is designated as one of America's Great Outdoors by President Obama. The new linear eco-trail is the result of 25 years of planning and purchasing pristine parcels of land adjacent to the beautiful Shingle Creek.  

The Shingle Creek Regional Trail is part of a trail network in partnership with Osceola County and Orange County. The trail offers a beautiful, natural environment for cyclists, pedestrians, canoeists/kayakers, bird watchers, and nature lovers. The first phase of the Shingle Creek Regional Trail is finished with construction on the remainder of the project being worked on in stages. Once complete the trail will connect Kissimmee Lakefront Park to Shingle Creek Regional Park, and then into Orange County. What makes this trail so unique is the way it runs through densely forested parts of our City. With a route that follows Shingle Creek, much of this trail feels like a natural get away from the busyness around us.
