1295 Shady Hollow Blvd., Naples, 34120, FL
Grab your mountain bike/hybrid and meet me at Bird Rookery Swamp Trail. This Bike Ride is recommended for intermediate riders! This is not for beginners as there will be some rough terrain.
Maybe we'll see some lions and tigers and bears.....oh my! Well, it's doubtful, but we'll most definitely see a gator or two and some other wildlife. This is definitely a hidden jewel in Naples.....a must see!!
This trail offers 12 miles of bike and hiking trails which are basically cut grass, including an 1800-ft boardwalk. A 1/4-mile crushed shell path leads to an 1800-foot boardwalk, then the trails become ground level, dirt/sandy/grassy, relatively flat berms with swamp on both sides. Biking can be a challenge on the grassy/sandy trails, but quite rewarding. This is why this would be considered an intermediate ride and you must be in good physical condition to do it. "Not for Beginners"
Recommended to bring:
*Helmet, water, snacks/lunch (we'll snack at the midway point), sunscreen, hat, and more **WATER**
Please check out the website for more information of this awesome swamp area!
I look forward to seeing you there!!
