Florida SUN Trail
The Florida SUN (Shared-Use Nonmotorized) Trail is a statewide system of paved trail corridors for bicyclists and pedestrians.
What will the Cape Coral SUN Trail look like?
The project will create a pedestrian and bicyclist connector between Del Prado Blvd. and the Burnt Store Trail. It will run along Kismet Parkway, then south on El Dorado and west on Van Buren to Burnt Store Rd. The trail will be 12 feet wide with at least two feet of the clear zone on either side. The trail will fall entirely within the City-owned Right of Way.
SUN Trail is a statewide system of paved trail corridors for bicyclists and pedestrians. In 2017, the City of Cape Coral received a $1.8 million grant from the Florida Department of Transportation to design a new bicyclist and pedestrian pathway.
Construction Phase I: Work Started on May 17, 2021; Anticipated Completion – Winter 2022
Runs from Van Buren Parkway at Burnt Store to El Dorado, then up to Kismet and east to Nelson Rd. Phase I is 3.5 miles of trail. As of March 2022, construction has made it to the intersection of NW 11th Court and Kismet.

Construction also includes new storm drains, repaved driveways and sidewalks, and installing sewer and water sleeves for future utilities.
