Logan Blvd. Trail north and south connects all the way from Bonita Springs to East Naples. This ample paved trail is isolated and runs miles from Bonita Beach Road south into East Naples. Most sections are paved and isolated. Besides bike rides, Logan is also great for rollerblading and walking. Vanderbilt Beach Rd. starts in the Naples estates and goes straight west all the way to beautiful Vanderbilt Beach in the heart of North Naples. Bike Lanes and side walks chase along both directions almost the entire way. The perfect bicycle ride for a sunny day at the beach!
The Gordon River Greenway is a beautiful, natural isolated paved trail that connects Golden Gate Parkway with the picturesque Baker Park. While bike-riding, you'll cross multiple bridges over the world-famous Gordon River and enjoy a loop around the Naples airport with its observation deck that's open to the public to watch takeoffs and landings.
The Rich King Memorial Greenway is a paved, isolated bicycle trail that runs from Rattlesnake Hammock Rd. in East Naples all the way north to Green Blvd. A round trip on this trail is just over six miles, and there are only two road crossings the entire way.
Best Bicycle Riding Locations in Bonita Springs and Estero
The CREW Strand trail that begins at the east end of Terry St. is a fantastic place to take your gravel bike or mountain bike most times of the year--but watch out for gators!

If you feel like a full day of bike-riding, try Three Oaks / Imperial Parkway, a north-south route that runs from Florida Gulf Coast University all the way down to north Naples and beyond. This route offers both bikes lanes and generous sidewalks and will take you past Coconut Point, Bonita Springs High School, and some of the most beautiful greenery in southwest Florida.
Some Adventurous Places to Ride!
The Picayune Strand State Forest is loaded with flat gravel roads to challenge you as you ride your bike. Stiff Florida winds and beautiful scenery will make for a refreshing ride. Keep your eyes peeled for black bears and Florida panthers, too!
If you love gators, try riding at the Bird Rookery Swamp in the Naples estates. This 11-mile loop will keep you on your toes as the gators some right up to the trail to say hello. Be careful and always remember not to taunt or provoke the wildlife.
