“I'll Never Make It All the Way”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

You can walk or bike all the way to Venice from Sarasota. Beautifully maintained paved pathway, plenty wide enough for everyone to share. I still haven't made it all the way to Venice. Maybe one of these days!!!

“Beautiful”

Love riding the trail! Prefer the ride south but either north or south, it is a wonderful, peaceful ride full of nature and scenic views.

“Nice easy ride”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

It's the greatest bike trail I have ever been on. Nice smooth ride with plenty to see. They have restrooms if needed. You can pack a lunch or stop at one of the crossroad businesses. They have trash pails and doggie supply's if you bring the pooch.

“Great place to ride!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2014

Great place to bike ride, multiple areas to park. Very well maintained. Most of the trail is in the sun so be prepared with sun block and water.

“Great day on the trail”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 20, 2014

We began the ride on the south side of Sarasota to the train station in Venice - 10 miles. Easy ride. Mostly flat. It's a two-hour round trip. Well worth the investment of energy to enjoy the scenery and beauty of the Legacy Trail.
