Carefree Bicycle Trails for All Riders

For a low key sightseeing trip, ride your bicycle on the multiuse trail following the Halifax River, an excursion with stops at Ormond Beach city parks and one of our best-kept nature encounters, beautiful Tomoka State Park.

Don’t have a bike? Many local bicycle shops rent them by the day or week.

In Ormond Beach, a good place to start is the parking lot on the southwest side of the Granada Boulevard Bridge (SR 40). To the south, a shared use bicycle trail passes through neighborhood parks with swings for children, gazebos to sit and watch boats passing by and anglers fishing from piers. The mix of sidewalks and paved segments allow you to ride as far south as Mason Avenue between Holly Hill and Daytona Beach.

To the north from Granada Boulevard, follow the sidewalk on the west side of North Beach Street. You’ll ride through an Old Florida neighborhood with large trees that form a tunnel of branches to keep you cool. At Inglesa Avenue a new 1-mile paved path through oak hammocks leads to the entrance of Tomoka State Park. You can explore all of the hard-packed, shady trails in the park on your bicycle, stop for refreshments at the Outpost and even rent a canoe to paddle the Tomoka River.

Tomoka State Park:  Admission for walkers and bikers is $2 per person; cars $5 for 2-8 people.  Information: 386-676 4050.  Canoe Outpost rentals: 386-673-0022.
