Legacy Trail (FL)

fun ride

February, 2023 by ihler.hydroseed

Wife and I came to visit our son and his family for a week and found out that there were a couple rail trails in area. So we found a local e bike rental shop and rented two bikes. Took 4 hours to cover the entire Legacy Trail and enjoyed a fantastic lunch at local business right off trail. Lot of kind and friendly people using Trail. Enjoyable ride. Worth taking the time and money to rent bikes and ride the Legacy. Friends from Malad Idaho

Sanibel Island Shared-Use Paths

Great Day for a beach Ride !

January, 2023 by bigbarnbrewing

We are so thankful for the folks who have cleaned up and cleared the bike trail through Sanibel Island. So sad to see all the destruction from Hurricane Ian but many people working hard to clean up and restore . We did find a beach open for a cool swim!

Legacy Trail (FL)

Correction

At the risk of sounding picky, the Legacy Trail follows the path of the old Seaboard COAST Line Railroad (not the Seaboard Air Line Railroad).

Fort Desoto Island Park Trail

Great biking trail

January, 2023 by pennyburruss

We bought new electric bikes while vacationing in Palmetto, FL. It was a very nice long trail to try them out. Can’t wait to go back.

Venetian Waterway Park

beautiful waterway

January, 2023 by dan263

Fun, easy ride along waterway. Last time we visited we saw a manatee. This trail also connects to the Legacy trail to create a long ride. Well used trail.

Oscar Scherer State Park

November, 2022 by marcia.halpin

We do not tow a car when we camp and look for state parks where we can get by just with our bikes. We rode south from the campground to Venice and found grocery stores, drugstores, restaurants, and much more within a mile of the trail on Venice Ave. There is a major intersection to cross but there are lights and if you watch out for cars turning right on red you are fine. We enjoyed the trail itself, especially overpasses so we didn't have to navigate busy roads while actually on the trail.

Bayway Trail

short but sweet

November, 2022 by chzlueez

Nice, short ride. Close to the water so there was a great breeze. Very easy ride.

John Yarbrough Linear Park Trail

Open After Hurricane Ian

October, 2022 by kellam

Two weeks after the hurricane the trail is open. All sections wide open.

Punta Gorda Harborwalk

Very Relaxing Ride

August, 2022 by geneza1973

This is a very relaxing ride along the Peace River and Charlotte Harbor. We rode this paved trail on our recumbent bikes and there was plenty of room for us and the other people/bikers - nice wide path and boardwalk! We parked at the trailhead across from the hospital and rode to Fishermen’s Village and continued down the Linear Park, turned around and rode back. Next time we’ll stop at one of the restaurants

Punta Gorda Linear Park

Short but Nice Trail

August, 2022 by geneza1973

We rode this paved trail today on our recumbent bikes. Short but well maintained and includes a bike tool station and several areas to stop and exercise. Many areas with benches and shade. We made this trail part of our Harborwalk ride.

Skyway Trail

One of My Goto Trails

July, 2022 by robandlisa

Near my FL home. Easy to ride and enjoy multiple environments from parks to nature preserves. Perfect on-ramp for the Pinellas Trail.

Skyway Bridge Trail

Amazing views! great workout

July, 2022 by jeanettelopez02

The trail was safe and a beautiful experience! When you get to the top of bridge, the view is breathtaking. Watching the boats pass through and the beautiful water. The breeze feels god and cools you down after a good sweat!
