We started in Sarasota and turned around in Venice, after doing a little of the Waterside Park trail there. On a Saturday afternoon it was not too crowded. The wind made it a good workout on the flat, straight rails-to-trails paved path. Loved the 10'...More

Usually get out here every weekend rain or shine. Many pull offs with tools for minor repairs and there are places where you can refill your water bottle. You see people of all abilities with all kinds of bicycles on this trail.

A great trail for walking, biking, skating, or whatever. Very well taken care of. Safe and beautiful. Will soon be extended, with the voter's approval, to downtown Sarasota. This will be a fantastic way to get downtown without the traffic and noise. Can't wait!

We had so much fun bike riding down the trail! Most of the trail was shaded which was great considering how hot it was. There are plenty of places to stop and sit as well as some bathroom and water break areas.
