“Paint the Trail” was a project started by local Florida artist and carpenter Jeff Sonksen. It is over half a mile of paintings along the Wekiva Trail – some painted by members of the community and many painted by Jeff.
Sonksen, a Longwood resident, has lost count of the number of paintings he’s contributed to his Paint the Trail project, but he estimates it’s a thousand now. Most give a nod to pop culture icons, from Bob Marley to Judy Garland to Elsa from Frozen. All have a positive message.
The bicycle trail is always growing and changing.

Fun Fact: Every painting is for sale before it goes on the trail. Once it’s on the fence, Jeff doesn’t care if you have a million dollars, it won’t be for sale.
