Auburndale TECO Trail... Florida

Bike Trail Connects to Van Fleet State Trail at Polk City Trailhead

The Auburndale-TECO Trail runs 6.5 miles from the South Trailhead in Auburndale (Denton Avenue) northward and connect to the Van Fleet State Trail (a FL Top 10) at the Polk City Trailhead. Flat and straight, but stay alert - open vistas and fewer people make this a poplar extension for fast road bikes. Fitness stations are located along the trail, which also passes Auburndale's Lake Myrtle Sports Park. Much of the trail is along TECO power lines with little or no shade, so be prepared with sunscreen and water. (Map link and photos below.)

Biking on Auburndale TECO Trail

Auburndale to the Van Fleet State Trail (from south to north)

Starting from the Auburndale Trailhead (parking, restrooms), the trail is away from the road, running north through a partially shaded area until passing Lake Myrtle Sports Park. Shortly past the Park, the trail starts to follow TECO Energy power lines, less shaded depending on time of day. At C. Fred Jones Blvd. it goes roadside along Berkley Road (though set back with a wide buffer), mostly unshaded. The trail passes under I-4 and still along the power line it enters a tree-lined, shadier section, ending at the Polk City trailhead (parking, restrooms, picnic).
