We often use this trail for cycling and running. Really appreciate that water is available at beginning and end of the 8 mile route. One wish is that all cyclists say something like 'on your left' when passing another cyclist or a runner.

This a nice paved trail near the road to Boca Grande. It is a great exercise trail. Not too many other people on the trail. It is worth a visit. There are tables at the trail head and t Publix nearby if you want food.

From 1138 go North on Boundry Bouv. Take first right, and you are there, you can either go left on the trail or right. The trail is actually at the back of 1138 Enjoy!
