Spent 3 hours exploring this trail and the surrounding area. What a great ride! There are many water views, great beaches to stop at and charming historic downtown Venice to dine and shop in.

Always a pleasure to walk the waterway. Great to start at Shamrock, walk to Circus Bridge then recover in the Old Salty Dog before walking back. The section from Circus to The Train Depot is not as picturesque, but still worth walking. Cyclists can do...More

We found this waterway trail one day when I was looking for a new place to take the dogs out for a walk. Venice is a busy little town with heavy traffic being the biggest complaint, especially during the winter snowbird season. Here, right in...More

Along the Inter-coastal channel. I believe it is handicapped accessible. There are bicyclists however they are courteous. You can go for as short or as long a walk as you want to.

While I didn't recall seeing dogs, it does seem like a good park for walking a dog. It is really 2+ mile walking/biking trail that goes down both sides of the innercoastal waterway. I checked the city website and it does... More

There is a small parking lot between the airport and Tamiami Rd, another at the railroad park by the canal.
