Trail to Clearwater beach & luncheon with friends

January, 2021 by claire.speir

Completed the largo to Clearwater section and detoured to the beach for lunch. We drove from Bradenton and parked at Scott Taylor park -It had bathrooms and connects to the trail. Will definitely do this again but wanted to share how to get there because I looked for others that might have detoured to the beach for lunch and didn't see exactly how to do it. Follow the trail from Largo to Clearwater and take a left at turner street. You will see the sign that says "to beach" follow that! ( we didn't do that and ended up riding with traffic) It has a paved sidewalk with a yellow strip on the side with signs to show you the way. You also mostly stay off the road this way. Also--this will keep you away from traffic on this side that goes over the Clearwater bridge. When you get to just before the roundabout- use the crosswalk to walk over to the right side of the road and take the roundabout north. We wanted to have lunch right on the beach at frenchys Rockaway grill. You are on the sand with umbrellas! It was magical. Turns out there are several frenchys restaurants - so go for the "rockaway grill". There was also the Palm Pavillion restaurant but it has a patio and you aren't directly on the sand. This was a decent ride and the only hard part was the hill up the bridge- we walked some of it. Not that bad but we were out of shape. We originally were thinking we biked about 7 miles round trip. Turns out it was 13 total. We were shocked because it didn't feel that long. The ride is close to one hour each way. Not including lunch- which we spent about 1.5 hours! We didn't want to leave it was so perfect. I hope this helps someone who was like me looking for help to plan a a detour to the beach. Definitely doing this again! bridge.

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. .

Legacy Trail (FL)

Better than expected

December, 2020 by dan.willmann

My wife and I drove in from Orlando to give this trail a try since it had such high reviews. It was straight and flat so I thought it would be quite boring but actually enjoyed it quite a bit as the it was so beautiful and well maintained the entire way. We were particularly delighted to see how seamlessly this trail connected with the Venetian Waterway Park trail which added another 9 miles to our ride. So beginning at the far north parking lot for the Legacy Trail we rode south to the historic Venice Train Station where it then connects to the Venetian Waterway Park. Once we arrived bock to our car it was a 29 mile round trip. We loved it!

Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail

Great urban ride and experience

December, 2020 by dan.willmann

This is a very unique ride as it is so urban. You pass numerous buildings including offices, warehouses, apartments, single family homes, small businesses, etc. There are also several bicycle bridges that cross roads so you don't need to stop for traffic. They were quite cool and a great leg workout riding up so many of them. The other great feature of this trail is its length... it is nearly 50 miles long so for those who love long rides you have plenty of trail to explore.

Boca Grande Bike Path

Yes it's short but I loved this trail. I also rode the neighborhood to see all the houses on the island. Public beach on end is also nice. Cute downtown let's you know you are on vacation

Venetian Waterway Park

Nice Trail - Do Again

December, 2020 by jenmahoney101

We loved that we were by the waterway the whole time. We opted to start at the Historic Train Depot and then cross over the S. Tamiami Trail drawbridge to go on the West side of the trail so we could cut over to Caspersen Beach at the end of the trail. Nice 8.5 miles down and back. We did it on longboards. Were we prefer smooth asphalt trails or at least longer sections of concrete before each crack... this was not a deal breaker and will be a do again. (Explanation: The sidewalk had small sections of concrete, separated by cracks vs larger sections of concrete before the crack. The cracks were slightly larger than other trails we've been on so it made for a little bumpier ride - again we are on longboards, bikes probably would not feel the difference.)

Pine Island Bike Path

Lame

November, 2020 by kz7669

Simple, it’s lame. Nothing to see here on the island. In spots the path is poorly maintained. Take the time and go to Sanibel Island.

Sanibel Island Shared-Use Paths

A must when in SW FL

November, 2020 by kz7669

Parked at the light house on the south end, rode up to the wildlife preserve, paid the $1 entrance fee and took full advantage of the one-way road that cars can only trace 15 mph on. It’s a scenic and fast side trip from the regular bike paths. Popped back out on the bike path and continued to Captiva where the road ends. Returned, went as far as Rabbit Rd and took the route along the west side of the island back to the lighthouse.... about 34 miles

Pine Island Bike Path

the staring and end point are cool

November, 2020 by koen.devits.usa

But what’s in between is maybe a bit dull. Long path next to main road. Yes it’s nicely paved so a smooth ride but it does not give much scenic views. So like some already suggested wonder off the path a bit for some more scenic views.

Legacy Trail (FL)

Great 22-mile roundtrip for these Hoosiers!

October, 2020 by timothyrw

Rode this trail with our 9-year old son. We parked right off the trail at the northern end at the Culverhouse Nature Park parking lot. We started in the early afternoon on an 86-degree sunny day. If we had to do it over we would have started later to get a bit more shade as the sun would have been lower in the sky. Having said that, somehow we completed the whole trail. Our previous record was only 11 miles! This trail has lots of stops with cover, which really helped. A handful of port a lets throughout the trail; but seemed to be more concentrated towards the northern half. Just a couple of bridges over some roads that my wife and 9-year old son walked their bikes up. I wasn't super impressed with the Depot. We looked around for a few minutes, hydrated, and headed back.
