In late 2016, the city installed new bicycle-pedestrian trail signs. The signs direct bicyclists and pedestrians to local sites in the downtown Maitland area.
Trails 4, 4A, and 4B get bicyclists and pedestrians to Maitland Community Park, Dommerich Elementary School, and Maitland Middle School. The new trails connect the Dommerich neighborhood to Trail 5 along Horatio and Trail 3 over the pedestrian bridge at Mayo Avenue. A complete trail map can be found at itsmymaitland.com
