Spring to Spring Trail
DeBary Hall to Lake Monroe Park

Part #2 of 2

This segment of the Spring to Spring Trail is one of the most scenic portions, which traces the northwestern shoreline of Lake Monroe.

It begins at the trailhead at the DeBary Hall Historic Site, an 8,000-square-foot estate that offers exhibits, multimedia programs and guided tours where you can learn about the history of the St. Johns River region and the individuals that worked at the house and grounds during the late 1800s and early 1900s.

Back on the trail, you'll make your way through tree-lined and canopied areas to Dirksen Drive and travel westward to Gemini Springs Park, a picturesque 210-acre park named for its freshwater spring where you can stop for a picnic or take a stroll on one of its nature trails.

A little further west on Dirksen, Memorial Park provides additional parking and access to the trail. From there, the trail drops southward to Lake Monroe Park, where you can access the water from the park's boat ramps and fishing docks.
