North Colonial Linear Park Description

The North Colonial Trail is a 2.5 mile multiuse trail in the Florida city of Fort Meyers. The trail begins on Colonial Boulevard, near the intersection of that road with 6 Miles Cypress Parkway. It sits on the north side of the boulevard, but rather than curve with the road, it continues heading west, tracing the edge of the Eastwood Golf Course. You'll come to the first of the street crossings along the route - Province Park Boulevard. All crossings are at grade but they are well-marked. Still, always proceed with caution. 

As you continue west, the trail parallels a canal but soon it starts to wind, repeatedly taking you away from the water's edge, into the forest, and back. Across Veronica Shoemaker Boulevard is the Trailhead Neighborhood Park, where you can park your car, or pause to rest. A further 0.7 miles brings you to the trail's west endpoint, on Old Metro Parkway.

The North Colonial Trail is paved and accommodates uses such as biking, walking and in-line skating for folks of all ages. It's proximity to both the canal and the forest make it a good location for bird spotting and a dock along the route provides an ideal fishing spot. 

Parking and Trail Access

Parking is available at the Trailhead Neighborhood Park (3980 Veronica S. Shoemaker Blvd.
