ConnectLee: Current and Proposed Lee County SUN Trails Network
BERT will ultimately become a vital part of the Florida Gulf Coast Trail spanning the entire length of Lee County, a strategy for filling the trail gaps we refer to as ‘ConnectLee‘.
Bonita Estero Rail Trail
BERT has many points of interest along the route that includes parks, commerce locations and natural resources. Below is a map of BERT along with a few of those points of interest.
Paradise Coast Trail
Collier County is a few years ahead of Lee County in its proposed trail network: Paradise Coast Trail. This map shows the connection at the Lee/Collier county line to BERT. It’s represented as Seminole Gulf Rail. BERT will connect to 70 miles of multi-use trails to the south.
Florida Gulf Coast Trail
The most ambitious of projects connects trail networks from Tampa to Naples: Florida Gulf Coast Trail. BERT is represented here as well! Trust for Public Lands is spearheading this project and it’s important Bonita Estero Rail Trail is included. This project will bring access to the Gulf Coast parks and attractions, as well as an economic boost and jobs.
