I just discovered Legacy trail after riding it from Venice depot to South Sarasota. Personally I would recommend trail to any bike lover. Its beautiful and goes through park for most part, very few crossings where you have to slow down and stop if you see traffic but overall nice, clean, beautiful and easy parking/access.
In the future it will be extended to downtown Sarasota, can not wait!!!!

A great way to see the quite and green side of the Gulf Coast. Great views of the back bays with ample greenery.

Trail was well maintained. Very long trail, ride the whole thing, I think 20+ miles and was absolutely relaxing. Has many outlets near restaurants and shops for break time. Has many more spots to just hang and enjoy the scene.

It is surprising that this was a railroad track. The trail is wide a paved. People are biking, walking, roller blading. It is a great place to enjoy the outdoors.

Only a couple road crossings in 14 miles. Nice Oscar Sheer State Park about midway on the trail. Safe to ride. See eagles, gofer tortoise, scrub jays, gators, snakes and iguanas. Past the Train Station on the South end of trail turns into Venation waterway trail for 3miles along the intercostal and followed by a nice loop trial in shamrock park .
