Ormond Scenic Loop & Trail
Byway Length: 34 Miles
Designated: July 9, 2007, National Designation 2009
FDOT District: 5
The Ormond Scenic Loop & Trail traverses some of the most beautiful and diverse natural scenery remaining in all of northeast Florida. There is ready access to the Atlantic Ocean, North Peninsula, Tomoka and Bulow Creek State Parks as well as numerous city and county parks. Vast expanses of ocean, back water tidal creeks and natural Florida scrub vegetation create scenic vistas waiting to be enjoyed.
Visitors seeking cultural and/or historic experiences will find museums and historic homes along the corridor including the remarkable Casements Mansion in downtown Ormond Beach. Recreational opportunities abound with parks and trails that offer boating, fishing, hiking, swimming, bicycling, beach walking and much more while the “Loop” is a favorite for motorcyclists in the cooler months of the year because of its canopied covered roads along parts of North Beach Street, Old Dixie Highway and Walter Boardman Lane. The long stretch of undeveloped beach along the Atlantic Ocean is an exceptional feature not found elsewhere on the Florida coastline, offering views of Northern Atlantic right whales and Humpback whales during migration season, and Loggerhead, Green and Leatherback sea turtles that use the region’s sandy beaches for nesting in the spring and summer months.
The Ormond Scenic Loop & Trail is a one-of-a-kind experience of state and national significance.
