While many people visit Indian Hill by foot or car, there’s nothing better than hopping on your bike to explore the area. From the wildlife to the natural surroundings, there’s plenty here to keep you excited about your ride.

Indian Hill is a bit more challenging than other paths, thanks in large part to its hilly terrain, but there’s nothing wrong with a challenge!

Located in close proximity to Marco Island, Shell Island Road provides everything you could ever want as a cyclist. In addition to a parking lot, the path is surrounded by nature and many types of wildlife.
