Pedal, Paddle or Amble Along: NSB’s Trails and Blueways

Peppered with wet and dry trails, the New Smyrna Beach area is a haven for outdoor enthusiasts. Roll or walk along the East Coast Regional Trail, a paved 12-foot wide path that will one day span 52 miles. This wooded trail is a great place to spot area wildlife, like deer and birds. Pack a lunch to enjoy along the way or make a slight detour for some down-home cooking at Osteen’s Diner.  If you prefer water over dry land, rent a kayak and explore the Mosquito Lagoon paddling trail. Perfect for first-time paddlers, this blueway is just over 2 miles long. Be sure to keep your eyes peeled as you weave around the mangrove wetlands—manatees and dolphins call this area home. No matter if you’re on water or dry land, you’re always on the right path with an outdoor adventure in NSB.
