Local who uses the legacy trail during the cooler months and enjoys it. Cruiser bike or touring, everyone can enjoy this experience. Did the whole trail from Sarasota to Venice with a restaurant stop and it was great.

Pleasure to bike along the trail, with water toilets every mile or so, entrances to National parks and car parking every few miles. Short trip or serious workout - your choice.

A great way to see the quite and green side of the Gulf Coast. Great views of the back bays with ample greenery.

It is surprising that this was a railroad track. The trail is wide a paved. People are biking, walking, roller blading. It is a great place to enjoy the outdoors.

This is a fantastic bike trail, you can go in either direction, we took the waterway trail. It is paved, wide and flat. You could go for a longtime, one hill over the bridge.

From S. Sarasota, Fl. to Venice, Fl, this trail is perfect for both cycling and walking. Busy but not crowded, normally.

Well paved trail with rest stops and water. Long, straight and flat. Our favorite ride is to ride to Venice, have lunch and ride back to the Palmer Ranch trailhead.
