We rented bikes in North Venice at Real Bikes and drove the trail south to the end. Very nice route along the Intercoastal Waterway. Lots of room. Very pleasant.

This re-purposed rail line makes a wonderful biking/walking from the gulf through Venice and on to Sarasota. Great for a quick ride, or a day trip. Lots of stops and scenic lookouts along the way, and plenty of opportunities to detour through adjoining neighborhoods and...More

Great for bikers, walkers and runners. Wide and off road to avoid car traffic. Maps are available. I love this idea for encouraging people to be more fit and enjoy the outdoors in safety.

The trail is paved end to end and is wide enough to accommodate bicycles, roller blades and runners going each direction. There are mini shelters about every mile and there are porta-potties and water available at several stops. There are several parking lots close to...More

peaceful (although getting more crowded) trail for bikers, runners, walkers, skaters etc., and unfortunately dog walkers. (I love dogs, but don't love "stepping in them"). Many birds, bobcats, river otters, Osprey, eagles, owls on occasion etc. The great growing Sarasota "getaway" for the athlete and...More

Great place to ride bikes, walk, skate, jog. Trail runs over old railway row. Flat and very well maintained. Over 20 miles from end to end. Down side, can get a little boring and not many places near the trail to get food or water.

This is a fabulous biking trail and not terribly crowded. It is a beautiful ride along what used to be a train track long ago, and the Venice historic train station has been recently renovated and has bathrooms available. (The train station has no trains...More

A nice widely paved trail from Sarasota to Venice and beyond! This trail is very scenic along the way with numerous wildlife sightings.
