This is a trail the travels through the woods and hammock swamp between homes and I-95. You don't need a map - this "trail" is a built up boardwalk over the swamp with a railing - you can only go North or South.... But it...More

Walked the whole trail this morning, all nearly 6 miles. It's really nice, very wide and well constructed, and a surprising amount of shade at 8 in the morning - might not be as much shade in midday with the sun overhead, so that may...More

Nice boardwalk for riding or walking. We enjoyed a walk back into "old Florida" perhaps. Saw rabbits, a pair of hawks, otters and birds. Potential is there to see an array of wildlife. We only went 1.5 miles in from the North end and back....More

This a wonderful experience for families and an opportunity to see some local wildlife. It's wheel friendly, newly expanded & accessible from Pineda causeway! Be prepared, it is a bit warm in mid afternoon.

Top ranked place for a walk or bike ride. Extension is now open and the trail is 3 miles each way. Great scenery, some signs telling what you see. Friendly people, never crowded. Check the weather it gets hot here.

The extension to the Linear Trail is now open. It’s a six mile round trip trail on an easy walking terrain - majority is an elevated boardwalk, with some asphalt patches mixed in. Distance markers are conveniently placed along the trail. More sunny spots than...More

This a a great place to walk or jog through swamps, trees and Florida scrub right in the midst of the Suntree and Viera hustle and bustle. At 3 miles, it's a little short for a bike ride but even that make for a relaxing...More
