Go for a walk, a run, a hike or a bike ride on the Legacy Trail. The trail is well maintained, so you don't worry about tripping or tumbles. Nature is all around you, so one can even meditate as one walks.

Great place for walking, running or cycling. If you don't have a bike you can rent one for a resonable price.

We love the Legacy Trail. It goes straight from Sarasota to Venice. Very nice and flat and goes through a beautiful Nature reserve. It is ten miles long with markers every 1/20 of a mile. Never too crowded. The little train stops along the way...More

This trail is designed for both bikers and walkers, families and loners. It is well marked with plenty of parking alone the way. More miles than your typical walk but a good strong bike ride. Pet friendly, kid friendly and good for young and old....More
