In April of 2011, President Obama launched America’s Great Outdoors initiative that saw the Department of the Interior selecting the Shingle Creek Trail to receive national recognition in a document titled “America’s Great Outdoors Fifty State Report.” This multi-use recreational trail is being developed through cooperation of local governments including Orange County, Osceola County, City of Orlando, and City of Kissimmee.
The Orange County portion of the Shingle Creek Trail (SCRT) is approximately 12.1 miles long including an existing 1.1 mile section in Hunters Creek. The trail continues north through the City of Orlando for 4 miles and south through the Osceola County and City of Kissimmee.
The trail is split into 3 phases, with phase 1 being split into multiple segments.

Phase 2: Taft-Vineland Rd to Town Loop Blvd.
Phase 3: Town Loop Blvd to Osceola County Line
- Segment 1: Sand Lake Rd to Destination Pkwy
