“Bike path for the serious rider”
Reviewed 12 August 2014

The Legacy Trail is a bike path along the former railroad right of way. Unfortunately this is almost entirely in the sun with little shade from trees. If you are an average 10-12 mph rider you may be intimidated by the 18+ mph riders who come up behind you and pass in a flash. If you don't think you would like to drive on the German Autobahn, you may not like biking on the Legacy Trail.

“I'll Never Make It All the Way”
Reviewed 22 July 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!!!

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”
Reviewed 9 July 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!”
Reviewed 28 June 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.
