The Chain of Lakes Trail is a 3.2 miles (5.1 km) paved multi-use path that runs from Lake Alfred to Winter Haven in Florida, past many of the lakes that compose the Winter Haven Chain of Lakes. The trail runs along the abandoned route of the South Florida Railroad's Bartow Branch (which was later part of the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad). The southern terminus of the trail is near Lake Howard at Avenue E Northwest near the bus terminal and city hall. The trail travels northward past Lake Silver, Spring Lake, Lake Ida, and Lake Conine before coming to an end at Lake Rochelle and US Highway 92.

Additional extensions to the trail are planned.
