“NIce paved ride”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

We enjoy the flat paved ride with out all the car traffic. Theres some boring spots and some interesting spots along the way. Just make sure to take water and a snack as there was not much in the way of replenishment.

“Great Trail for Walking, Running or Biking”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

The Legacy Trail from Venice to Sarasota is a great, protected way to exercise whether it be walking, running or biking. The pathway is smoothly paved and even takes you over Rt. 41 in Venice so you don't have worry about crossing a busy highway.

“Relaxing walk”
Reviewed March 25, 2013

We walked the Legacy Trail to see if it was worth the expense of renting bikes to ride the full trail. What a wonderful expeirence. The trail is groomed ad easy to walk or ride. It is wide enough to accomodate passing foot or bike trafficand there are parks with restroom facilities well spaced along the trail. Packing a snack or lunch is not necessary since there are enough exits on the northern section (north of Venice) to take a break to get a bite to eat. A bike shop with rentals is located on the RT.41 bypass and it is convienent to entering the trail.

“Riding my bike”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Love the Legacy trail, a great ride about 16 miles I think and paved and great serenity ride. You can go south and go along the intercoastal or ride north to Sarasota and be with nature. Wish we had more of these in Ohio.
