The west end of the West Orange Trail begins at Killarney Station (aka County Line Station), just off SR 50 on the boundary between Lake and Orange Counties. The trail heads northeast passing near the southeast shore of Lake Apopka, and ends in the town of Apopka. The one-way length of the trail is 19 miles.

A connector trail was opened recently, which extends the trail westward to Clermont.

Killarney Station is on the north side of SR 50, wedged between SR 50 and SR 438, and visible (but not acccessible) from SR 50. Access is from SR 438.

Distance is about 90 miles from Satellite Beach. About 1 hr 30 min driving time.

General Info

The trail is about 50-percent shaded, has quite a few curves, some of them right angles, and a few hills (only one short, steep one). It's a smooth trail, well-maintained and landscaped. A lot of people use the trail, but they're fairly spread out. Bikers, skaters, joggers, and walkers.
