Fun Things to do in Rotonda
Cape Haze Pioneer Trail Park – This nearly 8-mile trail gives you the option to walk, hike, bike or even skate. This park was once home to livestock, locally grown crops as well as the phosphate industry. The Charlotte Harbor & Northern Railroad operated here until the end of the 70’s. As time goes on there are plans to extend this trail South to the Gulf. This will connect this park with the Boca Grande Bike Path that is located on Gasparilla Island. When this expansion happens, this trail will span two coastal counties, Lee and Charlotte. As of right now the trail is a mostly straight and somewhat flat path that provides residents of the Rotonda and surrounding areas a peaceful retreat when looking to get away and take a long walk or bike ride.
