The trail was safe and a beautiful experience! When you get to the top of bridge, the view is breathtaking. Watching the boats pass through and the beautiful water. The breeze feels god and cools you down after a good sweat!
You don't have to cross any bridges. Put this address in for directions:
257 Tamiami Trail North Venice, FL 34285
You will park in the shade under the overpass. This is the trailhead. Proceed on the sidewalk/trail that parallels the water. You will pass Venice High School, then cross some minor streets before turning left to rejoin the view of the water. You will eventually ride behind the Buick dealership on a wooden path. Turn left onto the concrete sidewalk that runs along US 41. Pass the car dealer, boat dealer and go under the bridge. You will see the airport, and eventually the end of the trail where there are restrooms and shade. Walk over to Caspersen Beach and ponder why you didn't do this great trail earlier.
Go back to where you started. You will pass places to grab a bit if you're hungry. Enjoy!
The two parts of (the northern section of) this trail could not be more different. From Eagles Nest Park to Millenia is along busy roads, crossing streets, poorly paved, unmarked, and unmaintained. But then starting at Artegon, over to Sand Lake Rd and finally to the current end at Destination Pkwy, is absolutely beautiful. Quiet, serene, and meticulously well kept, with signage and trail markers a plenty. I hope Orlando or Orange County will consider improving the first half of this section as they also advance plans to create the next phase of the trail, connecting it to its other part in Kissimmee.
I like the pompano air park for inline skating. As mentioned in previous reviews, there is a particular length of the trail that is rougher than smooth. The softer the wheel, the better the feel, though. If you’re not super experienced with skating, you might avoid it, as there are several holes in the concrete in some areas of the rough patches, but otherwise, it’s quite doable for those of us more accustomed to urban skating. This trail is enclosed from any car traffic — a huge plus that you don’t need to cross any streets to continue on the trail at any point. There are several driveways for the air park that cross into the trail, but seldom is there traffic in and out of them. I give the trail 4 stars— missing a star for the rough patches, but overall, definitely worth the 20 min drive it costs me to get there.
This morning, I was on the Southern section of trail, which was open, and saw workers at the North gap installing the lighting system at the intersection the trail has with Countryside Boulevard. The work on the trail has been slow, but steady.
As others have correctly said, this trail is not the prettiest, but a few natural plantings could easily change this. Also, there is no shade under the powerlines, but this trail is great for exercise and commuters. Best of all, the trail acts as a connection to the Pinellas Trail, the Ream Wilson Trail, and other trails, heading North and East allowing the N.E. parts of Pinellas County to connect with the C2C, Florida’s Coast-to-Coast Trail from St. Petersburg all the way to Titusville.
So, all things considered, it beats the heck out of riding alongside cars. Expected completion is scheduled for Fall, 2022.
Awesome trail! Well maintained, well marked, new asphalt surface, entire route now open.
Nice shady short ride
Parked at the most southern trailhead. Bathroom facilities were clean and stocked with soap and paper towels. Quite a few roads to cross in the beginning. While not difficult it’s aggravating. Afterwards trail cruises on. Nice people on trail and I felt safe. Would ride again.
One of our favorite trails, well maintained and it offers opportunities to get some serious miles. What it doesn’t have is an abundance of shade. But an early start at the roadside park on US19/98 in Fanning Springs, using the sidewalk to connect to trail and then heading south toward Chiefland offers good shade. We usually turnaround at NW 120th Street just outside of Chiefland and visit Charles Strickland Park which has restrooms and covered pavilions. Next to the roadside park is Fanning Springs State Park and a great swimming hole.
If you’re up for an adventure and are comfortable enough riding with tractor trailers, speeding traffic, and trucks towing huge boat trailers, this is the ride for you. I did it in September 19-20, 2020 solo, starting at Dagney Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park. My husband supported my ride and had a cooler full of water, Gatorade, and cold towels soaked in icy water. I rode it in two segments, stopping in Marathon for the night. Although day 2 was less mileage, the stretch from Sugarloaf to KW was a killer with no shade, and a confusing and disjointed trail. It was of course blinding sun and scorching heat—and even by my standards (I am from Florida and used to the heat). I made it and was no worse for wear. Just did it again this weekend. 5/28/22
From Barna east to the end at Kathy Trail is a very nice trail! It's plenty wide, well used and surprisingly not flat. The entire trail goes through nicely sized natural area.
The much shorter portion of the trail through Wuesthoff Park is nice and does include some exercise stations. The very final section of that short trail going west is clearly not used as much.
While down here visiting family I've enjoyed the trail a few times because it's so nice and very convenient to ride my grocery getter over to the nearby Publix for provisions.
This is by far one of the prettiest rides I’ve ever done. The scene over the water is like something out of a movie. It is a little confusing when you get down into Biscayne key because I didn’t know I was still on the path. Nevertheless there’s a bike lane and is still very pretty and feels decently safe.
