On Jan. 21, members of the Volusia County Council, other local dignitaries and a hundred cyclists who had participated in a ride that morning, cut the ribbon for the newest segment of recreational trail — a 2.9-mile trail stretch that runs from Benson Junction Road to West Highbanks Road at Rob Sullivan Park.
With this new segment, Volusia County has completed 23.9 miles of the Spring-to-Spring Trail. When complete, it will stretch 27.2 miles from DeLeon Springs State Park to Green Springs Park.
The Spring-to-Spring Trail is part of the partially completed 260-mile St. Johns River-to-Sea Loop, which travels through Volusia, Flagler, Brevard, St. Johns and Putnam counties.
The trail segment was overseen and completed by Volusia County and was built with $282,613 in Volusia ECHO funds and more than $2.8 million provided by the Florida Department of Transportation and SUNTrail grants.
