About ten miles from the Neapolitan Cove RV park, which is on the south side of Naples off Tamiami Trail (highway 41 S.) there is a community park called Eagles Lakes. It's got the usual softball fields, picnic areas and tennis courts, etc. And then, it's got this:
There is some incredible biking/walking/hiking on the back side of the park. A 2.5 nature trail is yours for the walking along with a one mile paved trail as well...nice wide paths for riding a bike, so that's what Sparky did today...There are benches along the trails, and even a gazebo to stop and look out over the marshes. It was beautiful!
Here is the view from beyond the gazebo platform.....
Wish more cities would find a way to be more bike friendly. It is such a wonderful way to see the world ;o))
We may need to check out that area as a winter retreat!!!
Sounds like a great area for biking. Too bad it's so expensive to stay there.ReplyDelete

What's the closest state park? Wonder if I could bike from there?
Collier State Park, it's a LOT of miles but you could bike straight in from the state park. No idea how many! But you're up to it, I'm sure! :-)ReplyDelete
