Any time in Florida is a good time to explore our stunning natural landscape. Get outside and explore! This gorgeous Legacy Trail Extension was completed in partnership with Sarasota County on September 9th and serves as an essential driver of regional economic growth.

Whether you’re a cyclist, runner, or hiker our trails are a major asset to an ecotourism destination like Florida.

“The opening of this connector is the beginning of more great things to come to our area. Ultimately, The Legacy Trail will connect to the Florida Gulf Coast Trail, which is a 338-mile trail from Pinellas and Hillsborough County down to Collier County,” said Charles Hines, Program Director for the Florida Gulf Coast Trail with the Public Land Trust.

“Being within this statewide trail system will bring great economic opportunities to the North Port area. It will also bring health and quality of life benefits through access to the trail. The Trust for Public Land is committing resources to help accelerate the completion of the Florida Gulf Coast Trail.”
