The Pinellas Trail links Pinellas County from St Petersburg all the way to Tarpon Springs and was created specifically for bikers, hikers and skaters!
In 1983 Fred Marquis helped form the county's Bicycle Planning Committee. Mr. Marquis's son was killed in a biking accident and he was passionate about the county having a safe place for bikers. The abandoned CSX railroad corridor offered 34 miles from the southern town in our peninsula of St Petersburg all the way to Tarpon Springs in the northern end of the county. This was the perfect location for a trail dedicated to bikers, joggers, hikers, skaters and kids on their skateboards!
Today it is estimated that well over 80,000 people use the 47 mile long trail EACH MONTH! Yes, it is now longer than originally planned, which is wonderful for those who love the outdoors and don't want to worry about automobiles. It is patrolled by Pinellas County's Sheriff's Department and local police departments, as well as Pinellas County Park Rangers. Depending on the area of the trail, you see officers on bikes and in golf carts riding the trail to keep it safe.
The Pinellas Trail is just one more reason people love living here in beautiful Pinellas County Florida. From St Petersburg, through Clearwater, Dunedin and Palm Harbor, all the way up to Tarpon Springs, people love using the Pinellas Trail!
