As the above map shows, the planned route along the existing railroad right-of-way will pass near the communities of Oakwood Manor and Pinecraft. In addition, the extension would create the potential for a connecting route to Nathan Benderson Park and the The Meadows trail system using the existing Circus Trail.
Friends of The Legacy Trail will be presenting a program on The Legacy Trail at the Oakwood Manor Home Owners Association (map here) at 1 PM on February 13th, 2016. This presentation should be of particular interest to residents of northern Sarasota County because of the planned extension of The Trail through this area. Everyone is invited to attend. Although this is a gated community, the guard will allow you entry for the presentation.
