Boca Grande Bike Path

Don't miss this trail

March, 2020 by tadams61

My wife and I rode this trail this morning. We started at the North end, visited both light houses, then rode back from where we started. My speedometer showed 19.5 miles for the round trip so it was a bit longer than we expected but well worth the trip. We had ridden the Cape Haze Pioneer Trail last week and were going to ride it again but with the amount of time we spent at the two light houses and the fact that we had ridden that trail just last week, we decided to skip riding it again. We didn't climb the tall light house but we did spend quite a bit of time in the museum at the other light house. Well worth spending time there.

Cape Haze Pioneer Trail

good for running too

February, 2020 by mtzmail1

I ran about half of the trail for the first time last weekend. There were a few bikers and some walkers with dogs. Path is paved asphalt, pretty well maintained and wide enough so there’s no problem for all the different traffic. Path crosses several roads, but well marked and east crossings. Brush is cut well back from path minimum of 6-10 feet on each side. Very nice.

John Yarbrough Linear Park Trail

Nice Trail in Ft. Myers

February, 2020 by droffatsx3

Nice trail that feels fairly secluded while still near congested areas. Numerous covered picnic tables on path. A good bit of wildlife along the way, plus trail goes right by an airport if you're into airplanes.

There are small parking lots on both sides of Daniels Pkwy at the trail.

Negative- No restrooms. It would be nice if the controlling authority could at least add a portable or two along the trail.

Boca Grande Bike Path

Love it!!

February, 2020 by k.shaw1016

It's always a must when visiting Gasparilla Island to log some miles on this trail.

West Main Trail

Janes Memorial

February, 2020 by john617

Continue up Janes Memorial all the way to the end. It's about 6 miles of dirt road. There you can either take the trail to the right or continue on an additional 6 or so miles of Janes that is now closed to traffic. The trail to the right is an old raised railroad bed and is a great cross country ride through the swamp. At the end is a camp site, lake and fire pit. This place is loaded with wildlife including numerous alligators. You need to be aware that they can be anywhere along the trail. Great ride and it can get muddy and wet after heavy rains. Saw 8 alligators last time on that rail. One was actually across the trail itself and didn't want to move. Had to wait it out.

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST)

LOST trail was a delight

February, 2020 by suem.lamb

We started the trail at Moore Haven, Alvin Ward Park. We headed toward Lake Harbor but there was construction after 11 miles so we had to turn back. The ride there was beautiful. We were up on the levee road with waterways on both sides. The trail was absolutely flat with no elevation. There was a variety of birds to be seen along with alligators. There is no shade so put your sunscreen on and take plenty of water. We really enjoyed this ride and wish we could’ve made it all the way to Lake Harbor.

Pine Island Bike Path

Off the Concrete, Even Better! ¿¿

January, 2020 by aybceo

Is this a somewhat boring concrete path: yes, agreed! However, if you have a cruiser bike, mountain bike, or any fat tire bike, try leaving the Stringfellow Road bike path, for the quiet, green unpaved side roads that run east and west generally.

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST)

LOST Trail

January, 2020 by bonnie.smith_tl

Wasn’t exactly what we thought but was OK. Paved sections were nice but gravel parts can get tough. My wife and I both got flats on an all day ride. We have never both went flat and ran into another couple who had a flat as well. Not sure why or what caused them but both had small needle point punctures in a few places. The lake is not what we expected as you ride on top of a berm and your few is mainly weeds and saw grass. There are parts of the trail that take you well away from the lake as well.Was an OK ride but not one I’d drive to just to do,

Punta Gorda Harborwalk

great walk

December, 2019 by gram06

We parked at Fisherman’s Village walked to the 41 bridge. Lots of bikers and walkers and dogs but the path is wide enough for all of us. We will go back. We went out to eat downtown and then had ice cream at the other end. Next time we will park over there and walk the other way. More parking. Highly recommend.

Pine Island Bike Path

great ride

December, 2019 by fuentejps

Not a lot of shade so I wouldn’t recommend in mid summer but during winter is perfect. We really enjoyed it. We did entire length ended up a bit over 28 miles down and back

Sanibel Island Shared-Use Paths

One of the best for paved trails

June, 2019 by ironborn

Camped overnight on the island and did two days of casual bike riding. Trails are awesome, they even have water fountains.
