Legacy Trail (FL)

nice easy ride

April, 2021 by vikkb34

We parked at the train depot, pretty flat except 2 over passes, but u can ride around them.( You will have to cross the streets)It was pretty nice, can get busy.We rode into the venetian waterway park trail, which connects. That part follows the river.

Cape Haze Pioneer Trail

cape haze trail

Been riding this trail last couple of weeks and have seen several gopher turtles and snakes but this morning just east of Rotunda Dr. a cougar ran across the trail right in front of me..

Sanibel Island Shared-Use Paths

Sanabil

March, 2021 by ffemtchild

I recommend parking at the Sanibel Community Park 2231 Periwinkle Way it’s a hidden spot, also has bathrooms. I would recommend going through JN Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge. It’s $1 dollar for bikes and you have to check out the bathrooms on the second floor very cool murals.

5 Star Trail

March, 2021 by rzrbknil

5 star trail! Smooth & flat (except for 2 fairly steep but short overpasses). Plenty of areas to stop & restrooms along the way. Shady for about half the trail. Fairly busy for a Wednesday morning but one of the best trails I’ve ever been on.

Pine Island Bike Path

If I'm nearby I might ride again but wouldn't go out of my way. Right by busy road. I wouldn't bring my 10yo again though.

John Yarbrough Linear Park Trail

Great Trail!!

February, 2021 by patdaviau6

Started trail from Colonial Boulevard and completed entire trail. Nice wide, flat paths that cross the canal with bridges along the way. Water is crystal clear, no odors; did see lots of turtles, herons and ducks. A great trail between two very busy streets for a tranquil ride. Not very many people on the day we went. If you're in the area, just do it!

Pine Island Bike Path

33 miles Round Trip

February, 2021 by jeff.bellairs

Path has been repaired so it is in good condition and mostly smooth. Path parallels busy road but it's nice to have a long stretch separated from traffic. From the community pool it's 7.5 mile to Bokeelia to the north and 9.0 mile to St. James City to the south. Ride to the north was more interesting, passing by numerous nurseries growing a variety of palms and tropical fruit trees. Water view in Bokeelia was short but great!

Legacy Trail (FL)

enjoyable ride

February, 2021 by gdavis3751

Really nice bike trail, polite people on the trail, and not too crowded today. The amenities were very nice to have for quick pull over breaks.

John Yarbrough Linear Park Trail

Canal ride

January, 2021 by llimko

Took off early afternoon on a cool sunny Saturday. Trail was very nice, crossed over the canal on a few bridges, saw lots of waterfowl. Minimal traffic on trail with a few busy road crossings with crosswalks. A very enjoyable ride total 12.6 miles or so.

Pine Island Bike Path

Not a Bike Trail

January, 2021 by jimtucc_tl

This is a side walk and it’s mostly in disarray. At some points you can only travel 70 ft before slowing or stopping at driveways. Not recommended

Boca Grande Bike Path

Nice path but not crazy about the golf carts!

January, 2021 by z6sk5kezmd

A pleasant ride. We were there New Years Eve. It may be because of the holiday but there are many golf carts with under age drivers. Only one cart announced their presence when passing. I recommend it but you better keep your eye on your mirror. South Beach is a good restaurant for lunch. .
