    Best trail around. Fun to ride to the end and come back on other side of river

    Live long & Prosper are flooded today. No chance getting in there today.

    Definitely a fun trail system! You can ride both trails, one going out, the other coming back in. Live Long is definitely more technical than Prosper is, but both will serve you well if you've got good endurance! Fun loop :)

    To be clear, the Live Long and Prosper Trail is accessed easily from the Myakkahatchee Creek Environmental Park. Go east over the bridge and south on the power line to another cement bridge that crosses the Myakkahatchee creek. The Live Long Trail runs east on the north side of the bridge and the Prosper Trail does the same on the south side. They connect at the east end when the creek is dry or if you don't mind riding through 8" or a foot of water. If you enjoy tight trails with lots of twist and turns around trees up and over large roots and some fallen trees this trails for you. I enjoyed it but thought it was gnarly. 6" inches out of bounds and you're swimming. Take a first aid kit. I truly had to laugh about inept this trail made me feel. I shall return. BUT......Myakkahatchee Park offers great intermediate trails and the power lines to the east over the bridge are casual gravel and grass with great gator sightings all along the way. 8 miles north on the pwr lines brings you to a Red marked trail that will take you to Carlton Preseave. All this made possible by Sarasota Co. and SCORR.

    Out and back loop runs about 5.5 miles- was running fast today due to recent rain- really great singletrack for the area
