Boca Grande Bike Path

Totally worth the drive down from Tampa

November, 2017 by adamswonger

Had a lot of fun biking around the island, lots of great place to stop and check out!!! Highly recommend for the casual rider, I got about 19 miles in, island is only 8 miles long. So more of a scenic and exploring ride than a ride to get a lot of miles in

Venetian Waterway Park

Cruising the waterway!

October, 2017 by coconutbay

This is a nice paved trail that allows you to pedal (or walk) along part of the intercoastal. Seems odd to pedal and wave at passing boats, but there you go.

INSIDER INFO:
1) Saturday mornings there's a street market near Michael Biehl park where you can take your wife to buy produce, plants, or whatever makes her happy. They close about noon I think.
2) The trail goes under a few overpasses, giving you some shelter if you get caught in a drizzle/rain event.
3) You almost certainly will see small planes (today a Lear jet) take off and land at the adjacent airport.
4) The trail ends at the beach if you want to take a dip before going back.
5) No hills- easy-peasy trail.

Legacy Trail (FL)

Super trail

October, 2017 by coconutbay

Since we've bought our recumbent trikes, we've been to this trail 4 times in 6 weeks. It's asphalt, so no problems for those of you with skinny street tires. Walkers, with or without dogs, are common. Folks are usually friendly and wave or "good morning" as you pass them. A bike repair station and some Portopotties are dispersed along the way. You can also enter the Oscar Scherer state park from the trail.

You cross streets only a couple of times, but, no sweat since there are signals to get the traffic to stop.

Squirrels are common, but we saw an otter on the side of the trail once. What a hoot!

INSIDER INFO:
1) Pack a picnic because there are places along the way to stop.
2) On one end is a good sized overpass that spans U.S. 41. Good news is that you can fly coming down, but the bad news is that it can be a test for the knees. More good news- there's a super good bike shop in the shopping center that backs up to it. If you have a mechanical problem, they can fix you up.
3) The Historic Train Depot on one end is a good place to park. Restrooms, water and picnic tables are there.

Fort Desoto Island Park Trail

love

August, 2017 by hasan

love this trail for many reasons

Venetian Waterway Park

Legacy

July, 2017 by missprimrose

The best Trail in South West Coastal Florida. The Complete round trip from Shamrock park is 30 miles. There are few road crossings so it is indeed safe for bicycles. If you ride on the roads in coastal Florida you are literally risking your lives. Route 41 has a small bike lane and it's too dangerous. Sad thing is that after 10 round trips it can be boring. The next good trail is a long drive away from here.

Cape Haze Pioneer Trail

Cape Haze to Boca Grand

July, 2017 by missprimrose

pros; beach access, access to fishing, nice scenes.
cons: Crossing over to Boca Grande on bike costs $3, is dangerous because of the narrow bike lane and many cars. Once on Boca Grande there is a golf cart rental so you have to dodge many carts and road crossings. The cape haze part is 7 miles

Venetian Waterway Park

Nice, peaceful ride along the intercoastal

June, 2017 by dave.ranck

This is a nice, peaceful ride along the intercoastal waterway. The surface is paved throughout the length of the trail. As someone else mentioned, parts of the trail will be in the sun depending on what time you ride. If you ride early in the morning or late in the day (around sunset) I find that most of the year the temperature is OK. This is Florida so riding at 3 in the afternoon in July is going to be a bit um, warm.

If you ride the entire trail out and back you can cover about 40 miles. A nice short ride is to start at Caspersen Beach, cross the Circus Bridge and go south on the east trail to Shamrock Park, returning to Caspersen Beach. That is a quick 10 mile ride (or thereabouts).

Don't neglect at least a quick visit to the beach. You might even want to bring a "Venice Snow Shovel" and search for shark's teeth!

Punta Gorda Harborwalk

Fun ride

June, 2017 by jgoodell67

I enjoyed this ride on a breezy summer morning. It has great variety and took about an hour to the end and back. The only problem is it is still under construction! It will be a 5 once it is complete!

Fort Desoto Island Park Trail

Beautiful trail

May, 2017 by cindycornelius

This is a great park with a well-maintained trail. Not on the road which I appreciate. Beach is just steps away throughout the trail. Beautiful. Note: $5 parking fee, but hundred of parking spots all over the park.

Venetian Waterway Park

Beautiful Ride in Beautiful Venice

April, 2017 by tammyw8

Such a beautiful peaceful ride with a view. I wouldn't recommend it in the full summer months as there isn't much shade. Such friendly people on the trail too!

John Yarbrough Linear Park Trail

nice Trail

March, 2017 by luckyseas1

this is an amazing Trail right through the middle of Fort Myers. we saw a painted turtles anhangia's, white cranes, snowy egrets , great blue herons , tri-colored herons, mallards, ibis, and there were fish on the beds in the creek. only saw five or six people during a two-hour walk from Six Mile Cypress to Daniels and then back. can't believe this nice Trail is almost in my backyard

Sanibel Island Shared-Use Paths

What a great trail!

March, 2017 by stevej371

Biked from Billy's rental to the far end of Captiva and back. Just an excellent trail. On the return trip, near Ding Darling..had to stop on the trail because of a guy parked on it with his car! He was sitting behind the wheel and his wife was outside taking pics of birds in the nearby trees. Not enough room to get around him..I politely told him it was a bike trail...not for cars. He acted as though he didn't understand and we had to take the dirt route around him.
