Be aware that golf carts on this island aren't very friendly to bikers. If you are interested in going at any kind of reasonable pace...take your chances with the road. Overall I felt this island wasn't bike friendly. They'd prefer you stay off the island all together. It is a COMPLETELY flat trail, so no athletic challenge beyond if there... More

Bike, walk or ride a golf cart up and down this pathway that takes you from one end of the island to the other. Boca Grande is lovely, with beautiful homes and gorgeous views over the water. Do pay attention to other people though as it can be busy during high season. Most people are very courteous but I would... More

One of the best features of the island is it's extensive bike trail that runs the entire length of the island. Impeccable maintained.

Plenty of parking, free and a small fee. We brought our bicycles with us but could have rented them in town. This was a great way to see the island. Lighthouse, with gift shop, osprey nests, beaches, and the Gulf.

This island is so darn cute, and riding the trail is the best way to see all the details. We rented beach cruisers from a shop in town and headed south on the trail to the public beach and lighthouse on the southern tip of the island, passing a lot of beautiful coastal mansions along the way. We returned to... More

The trail is nice and although busy with golf carts and many cross streets, no one is moving very fast.

Boca Grande exists because of the bike trail. This trail is the result of the long, thin, flat geography of Boca Grande. Bikes and golf carts define the personality of the island. If you find yourself on BG, rent a bike and ride on this trail. It's a religious experience. And the trail continues another 7 - 8 miles North... More

this bike path winds its way thru Boca Grande Island. There are miles of trails straight down the old railroad right of way. You can ride a bike for miles before the island and then connect with this path once you cross the bridge into Boca Grande. You will see gorgeous water views, beautiful homes and many different types of... More
