This is a nice paved trail. Make this ride almost twice as long by turning north (left) at Ortiz and go about 2 more miles north. We park at the trailside park on veronica shoemacher drive ..just north of winkler road. I like these paved trails that are not right on the road... much safer and wide enough to ride at least 2 bikes side by side.. About 8 miles total...up and back....
Nice views of the waterway. Ride on both sides for a change of perspective. Add to the Legacy for a nice long local ride
We Pay $6 for Toll but worth Excellent Experience Safety,Enjoyable , The Track Smooth, Few Places to take a break and Nice Ocean View. Relaxing Place.
I can't believe I waited so long to come to Sanibel and ride the trail. The ride is a mixture of residential, nature, business and waterviews. Plenty of places to stop for a bite to eat or park the bike and continue on foot. I will return.
Nice ride that has plenty of room for other bikers and walkers. There is some shade along the way which is a welcome break. The trail and the canal are well cared for and there was a maintenance person cleaning debris from the trail the day we rode. Felt very safe. We didn't see any restrooms but there were a few covered areas to rest and enjoy the surroundings. There is a fair amount of road noise but not enough to detract from the ride. We took a small detour along the way and rode in the Pine Villas neighborhood. It was filled with lush landscaping and beautiful homes. Enjoy!
Made a nice day trip out of this by going past the airport to Baker's park. From there a few blocks into Naples to Gulfshore Blvd and then north to Lowdermilk Park and had lunch and refreshments at Rita's there at the beachside pavillion. We reversed that course and made it a 14.5 mile round trip, but found later that if we would have went north from Lowdermilk towards Doctors Pass, we could have wound up just a couple blocks from the parking lot back at Gordon River Park. Also could have had some beach time at Lowdermilk if we had brought our swimwear! Very nice beach facility there. Highly recommended trip!
A nice change, riding along the canal watching boats cruise by and planes take off from the airport. The concrete trail passes 3 parks on the east side. We parked at the Patriots park, which is actually on the Legacy Trail and rode the pedestrian bridge over Tamiami highway towards the train Depot. There the waterway park begins.
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..
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.
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.
Parking can be expensive and scarce on sanibel. Park for free at the Ding Darling visitors center, pay $1to ride through the refuge and spend the rest of the day biking around the island
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!
