The Bonita Estero Rail Trail project could transform a 12-mile portion of Seminole Gulf Railway into a recreational biking trail spanning from northern Collier County to Alico Road in Lee County.  

The Friends of the Bonita Estero Rail Trail volunteer citizen group in partnership with nonprofit Trust for Public Land continue to push for the project. A feasibility study was approved by the Lee County Metropolitan Planning Organization on March 17. 

While local cyclists advocate for the project, residents in communities and properties where the trail will run through said their concerns are not being considered.
