Nice peaceful trail. However, there is not much to see. However, good place for walking, running, biking, rollerskating.

If you bike, walk, run or skate, the Legacy Trail is for you if you live in the area or are just passing through. It is peaceful and lovely. It also hooks up with the Venice trail for an extra bonus. We love riding there...More

This is a paved bicycle right-of-way on an old abandoned railroad right-of-way. Easy and scenic ride. This trail is about 10 miles long and connects to another trail at the Train depot for another 4.5 miles.

Having facilities like restrooms , security and fewer spiders needed . Nice on a cool day but in the heat of summer there is no shade . This trail crosses over a bit of road so you must be careful.

We bike the trail about 3 times a week. Absolutely love this trail. It is always clean. Restrooms are available every couple of miles. Wide and flat asphalt throughout.

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.
