Thank you Pinellas County for making this trail awesome... the only thing I can recommend it is more signish to the local bike shops in the area... why not charge the bike shops and pay the staff of Pinellas County

“Great Bike and walking Trail”
Reviewed April 25, 2013

You can walk or ride on this controlled access trail. You can go approximately 36 miles with lots of rest stops, nearby places to get snacks, and some water fountains along the way. You have to slow down when the trail crosses a street, but it is totally safe with no car traffic on the trail.

“Awesome biking”
Reviewed March 29, 2013

Biking in general in FL is awesome. We were off and on the Pinellas trail in different cities the whole time we were in Florida on a week long vacation. Highly recommend it even for families. Our 6 year old loves biking and this flat paved trail was perfect for him. I saw a couple bathroom facilities along the trail and passes thru cities for when u need to stop for lunch.

“Nice urban bike trail”
Reviewed March 13, 2013 via mobile

This trail is an old rail line, so there are only bikers and pedestrians, no cars to put up with. We rode the northern part from Dunedin to Tarpon Springs. It is level with lots of green. Mostly you are seeing back yards, not beautiful views of the Gulf. But there are places you can veer off, like to Honeymoon Island where you get looks at the water. The trail goes through Denedin and there are services there. It is also a cute town. Mostly there are not a lot of services along the trail. We got hungry and had to Yelp a restaurant, then pedal off the trail to find it. Overall, this is a very nice bike ride. We ha fun.

“Great trail by cycle or foot in Pinellas County for folks of all ages”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

It is a brilliant idea to convert out-of-use railroad tracks into nicely paved and marked trails for walkers and cyclers of all ages. The county's Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail has some sections through shaded areas, a great feature in the hot summer months. Road crossings are clearly marked, with the trail traffic getting the priority at many crossings. Emergency telephone numbers are marked on the pavement at regular intervals. During my hour plus walking on the trail, all users were courteous and abiding by the rules of the trail, which are clearly posted. It passes right by the Wall Springs Pinellas Park in Palm Harbor where one can rest and use the toilets, parking and other facilities. To get users across major thoroughfares, there are even elevated sections gentle enough for bicycles to use. I was told that this trail, leading to Saint Petersburg, is some 30+ miles long.
