The trail was built primarily for the many people who use electric golf carts to get around the island. This means that it is smooth and with few road crossings until you reach the Town of Boca Grande. There is little to see on the ride except for the lighthouse and the pretty town, but it’s a nice way to spend an afternoon
The trail is primarily used by the residents who get around the island in their golf carts. For cyclists the trail is flat, straight snd mostly without shade. There are fields and a few tree farms and occasional buildings to look at, but the Gulf or the Inner Coastal cannot be seen. There are lots of intersections in some parts, so watch out for cars and carts.
The Pine Island Bike Trail is not identified on Google maps, thank goodness for TrailLink. But that’s not surprising since the trails primary use is a cart path for the golf carts that many residents use to travel around the island. We parked at the community center on Sesame Road and rode south on the cart path that parallels Stringfellow Road. There are many road intersections as the road is the only north/south artery on the island, fortunately in most cases vehicle drivers were courteous and allowed us to cross in front of them. There really isn’t much to see. The Gulf is out of sight in the west, the inner coastal is out of sight in the east. Fields and palm tree farms and the occasional building and and fumes from vehicles on the road a few feet away.
If you like watching airplanes, this takes you behind Page Field in one direction and peaceful ride along the canal the rest of the way.
There's been about a half mile section of this trail closed between Province Park Blvd and Veronica S Shoemaker Blvd for at least three months. It appears as if no work is being done on this section. Anyone know when it will reopen? The trail is short enough as it is...Thanks.
Twice we have made the drive to Pine Island from Port Charlotte to ride this trail, both times going from pain center north to the end of the trail near Bokeelia. And I the surface is very well-maintained and smooth. Some reviews complain that it’s nothing more than a sidewalk, but it is plenty wide and is an outstanding ride if you just want to log 14 miles. There are enough sites of interest along the way such as a couple of palm tree farms and some fruit farms. We took a safe ride over to the Alden golf course and were greeted by extremely pleasant people as we sat and watched golfers and enjoyed a cold drink at on the patio. The little park in pine center has a couple of shaded picnic tables where we’ve eaten our lunch each time. All in all this is not a spectacular ride but it is a very worthwhile ride.
It was well worth the $6. We rode Feb 17 12 miles had lunch in town. Sat on beach afterwards. Beautiful day Cindy Pennsylvania
Parking is indeed a serious problem for this trail access. The lot in the description along Daniels is on the NORTH side of Daniels near Metro and not the south. Very nice short ride on the JY, just wish parking were better and also better restroom access.
I first rode this in late December and it was closed from about a mile in from the east end at Ortiz all they way to the western end at Veronica Shoemaker. I checked yesterday and the west end still had road closed signs up.
Parked off of Pine Island Road and only had time to go north or south since it was the end of day near sunset. Decided to go south to St. James. Most of the route was well paved but we had to be alert near most intersections, especially closer to stores near Pine Island Road. Not much to view but the sidewalk was paved the majority of the route. Biked 17 miles there and back. It was a pleasant, easy bike ride.
We drove 1.5 hours e/w to ride this trail. Had a wonderful day,l! This rating is for our overall experience, not just the trail. Even though it was a sunny Saturday, it was not crowded. We drove over in a 25’ Class C motorhome, Bridge toll to island is $6 for cars and $11 for RVs. Found a free place to park around 18th. Later saw RV/Bus parking signs around 5th. Rode our e-bikes down to the state park, through downtown, past 2 lighthouses, stopped to sit on the beach. $2 per person for bikers entering state park. Sunset drinks followed by dinner at South Beach Grill which was great. Beach/restaurant not dog friendly so we left our pup in the RV, but the trail and overall experience were great and one of our faves so far!
Started at Pine Island Rd NW and Stringfellow. All-way stop but narrow escape from being hit by a car. Rode south to St.James City. Lots of intersections requiring almost full stop because of obstructing landscape.
