Easy ride. Low water levels, so a bit smelly from rotting vegetation. Saw some birds. Not much to see today, but a nice ride all the same.

Well groomed trails flat trails Id call it a walk not hike large parking lot very dense marsh area not a lot to see but great for runs or biking or walk if you don’t mind similar views

10/10 would recommend. Lots of cool trees and birds and butterflies. There were markers all around telling you about the ecosystem. Lots of shade. Also a bit of mud and mosquitoes so be sure to wear bug spray. The parking was free, I asked a lady at the office.

really nice. forgot to record time but its nice to go by yourself and get lost for 3 or 4 hours. saw a raccoon and some turtles even though it was a bit cold so that was a nice perk! will be coming back.

Nice ride with plenty of stop points. Restaurants, beaches, shops, even drinking fountains and bathrooms. Beach side trails are through aces road to resorts and residences so it is narrower and close quarters passing traffic from opposite direction riders and walkers.

Starts off as a boardwalk then becomes a dirt path. Interesting look into mangrove estuaries.

Very nice beach with white sand and a wonderful place to look for seashells. The views of the gulf are great.

Great place to see tropical vegetation and wildlife.

Great way to see the swamp

Nice morning beach hike.

This trail is actually a bike path/walking path on Sanibel along the main road. There is no clear start. There is a CVS shortly after where the start is shown on this map, which is where we parked. If you go 2.3 miles following this “trail” you get to the Ding national wildlife refuge. We took this instead of following the bike path (the trail on this map.) We took the Indigo trail 1.9 miles one-way through the refuge which allows for birdwatching (saw plenty- very interesting), crocodile watching (saw none), and walking through more interesting terrain and wildlife than just walking along the road on the bike path. Total round trip from the CVS was 9 miles.

Very easy paved trail

We did a kayak tour of this water trail, and it was fantastic. We paddled through the mangroves, with roots full of oysters. We passed a variety of gorgeous birds resting among the trees. It was peaceful and shady for much of the trail. We went on our own, but passed the kayak tour group, and it sounded like that would be interesting to do sometime to learn more about the surroundings. I’m already planning to repeat this adventure next year.

Biked the trail from Gulf Breeze cottages and back. Great trip!

It's $1 per adult to walk this trail. It's 4 miles round trip. Half of it is in a service road and the other half is on the main paved road through the refuge (where the cars are). It's a bit of a boring hike (and we are avid hikers). We did see some wading birds, but that's it. Not a great hiking trail. We biked it the first day, hiked it the second. Biking it is much more pleasant than hiking it.

Belle randonnée en vélo mais sans vue sur la mer et très souvent exposé au soleil...peu de resto ouvert pour le lunch donc prévoir un pique-nique pour bonifier votre randonnée

Une belle randonnée que nous avons effectué en vélo à la tombée du jour. Nous avons vu des oiseaux un crocodile un crabe et un raton. Il faut penser au chasse moustique à ces heures pour profiter de la balade sans se faire dévorer

This is a road where you can walk, run or bike. All flat and well maintained. Easy for anyone to get through. It made for an entertaining morning, but I do prefer unpaved hikes.

went to the look out and back

This is an access road linked to a paved drive. Its great for a flat trail run.

Very nice walk but I prefer trails with no car accessibility. Lots of places to look at water and bird lookout is amazing in the evening!
