“CAN'T GET THERE FROM HERE!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

We are visiting the Siesta Key/Sarasota are for a week. We were looking forward to bike riding along the Legacy Trail. GOOD LUCK! After searching several sites on line including Trip Advisor reviews,and calling bike rental shops,it seems impossible to rent a bike near the trail. WHAT A WASTE IN A TOURIST AREA. Seems a local bike shop would have picked up on this by now. NO COMPARISON TO SANIBEL ISLAND BIKING. COME ON SARASOTA, IS SANIBEL BETTER THAN YOU?

“Can be relaxing or a great workout”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2014

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.

“I wish I lived close to Legacy trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014

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.

“2014 ride”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

We rode the Legacy Trail, end to end, then continued onto the Intercoastal waterway trail. Awesome day. Very nice trail with water, biffys, tables and benches along the way. Thank you FL for this very nice trail. Toured the Train station too, small, but very interesting.

“Biking experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 28, 2014

I just discovered Legacy trail after riding it from Venice depot to South Sarasota. Personally I would recommend trail to any bike lover. Its beautiful and goes through park for most part, very few crossings where you have to slow down and stop if you see traffic but overall nice, clean, beautiful and easy parking/access.
In the future it will be extended to downtown Sarasota, can not wait!!!!
