The Space Coast Loop Trail includes the Kennedy Space Center Loop Trail and the East Central Florida Regional Rail Trail. The Space Coast Loop is part of the St. John’s River to Sea Loop, which spans 300 miles across five counties and the Coast to Coast Trail that stretches across Florida from the Atlantic Ocean to the Gulf of Mexico.
Preliminary Engineering Report (PD&E) for the East Central Florida Regional Rail Trail
In April and May 2015, 150 participants hiked or biked a 7.1 mile segment of the East Central Florida Rail Trail. Enjoy a video recap from one of the participants or view the event slideshow.
Brevard County’s section of the East Central Florida Regional Rail Trail stretches from Canaveral Avenue to the Volusia County line. Construction of this trail is expected to begin in the fall of 2015. The paved 12 foot wide multi-use trail will connect with 52 miles of rail trail in Volusia County and is part of the larger Space Coast Loop Trail and Coast to Coast Connector Trail. The Coast to Coast Connector travels 270 miles across the entire state. Approximately 75% of this safe, multi-use trail is already completed or funded for development.
The Kennedy Space Center Loop Trail will travel across the award-winning Max Brewer Bridge and through the Merritt Island National Wildlife Refuge and the Canaveral National Seashore. A preliminary Design and Environmental Assessment was completed in 2013. Learn more by visiting the project website.
