Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail:
The Pinellas Trail is one of the most popular urban trails in Florida. It stretches 38 miles from St. Petersburg and goes north to Tarpon Springs. The trail was created along an abandoned railroad corridor. It is now a protected green space that provides the many communities along it with places to ride bikes, run, walk and skate. It’s open during daylight hours and while horseback riding is prohibited, pets are not as long as they are leashed.
Ream Wilson Clearwater Trail:
This trail currently stretches from Tampa Bay to the Gulf of Mexico. Parts are still under construction, and once complete will connect more than 20 parks. Currently the trail connects Carpenter Field, Cliff Stephens Park, Del Oro Park, and Cooper’s Bayou Park, and goes to Safety Harbor.
Fort Desoto Island Park Trail:
This trail is a paved path that stretches along the entire offshore key. This trail connects military remnants, two piers, beaches, picnic and camping areas and the ferry to Egmont Key State Park. It’s known as an entry to the Great Florida Birding Trail. The Great Florida Birding Trail is part of a collection of more than 500 locations in the U.S. where there are protected bird habitats.
Courtney Campbell Trail:
This trail provides runners, walkers and bicyclers safe access to the Courtney Campbell Causeway, which links Tampa and Clearwater. The trail has amazing views of Tampa Bay and actually connects Cypress Point Park, Skyway Park, and Ben T. Davis Beach.
