A paved trail that goes from Fraser to Winter Park Resort. This is also a favorite walking and roller blading trail. Hint: it is uphill from Fraser to Winter Park Resort.

This is the easiest ride in the area, with the least amount of physical exertion and skill. The trail from Fraser to Winter Park parallels the meadow, then goes through the town of Winter Park. Cyclists have a choice of either riding on the sidewalk (either side, carefully and yielding to pedestrians) or riding on the highway (following the same rules of the road as a driver of a motor vehicle.) At the traffic light at Vasquez Road, the trail crosses from the west side of the road to the east. You are now back on the bike path. This is the best part The trail winds along the river and through the Idlewild campground, (where toilets are available), under the highway to Trademark Drive in Old Town. Veer right to Winter Park Drive. Turn left at Winter Park Drive, right at Old Town Drive and follow to Winter Park Resort. Picnic tables and benches are located along the trail.
