At the risk of sounding picky, the Legacy Trail follows the path of the old Seaboard COAST Line Railroad (not the Seaboard Air Line Railroad).
We bought new electric bikes while vacationing in Palmetto, FL. It was a very nice long trail to try them out. Can’t wait to go back.
I bought a condo a fifth of a mile off the trail so I can ride everyday without using my car.
Fun, easy ride along waterway. Last time we visited we saw a manatee. This trail also connects to the Legacy trail to create a long ride. Well used trail.
We rode this on our Ebikes Jan 7&8,2023
Day#1 Parked at Oldsmar Sports Complex and easily picked up the trail. First part along water and then through and by parks. Lots of shade. Really a great trail. A few boardwalks over swampy areas. We took the leg of the trail down to Mobbly Bayou wilderness. You do wind through two neighborhoods as part of the trail but very enjoyable and no traffic. The Mobbly part is about 1.5 miles of super hard packed sand and nature. Along the way there is a zipline that was busy both days. Total miles 14.5
Day#2 Again parked at Oldsmar Sports Complex. This time at R.E Olds Park on the map we turned north to the Cypress Lakes Preserve. First part is on sidewalk along streets with 2 signal crossings. Some won't like this but did not bother us. Worth it to ride through the Preserve. Saw an alligator in the pond. (From AZ so we are still excited to see these guys). Then when the trail ended instead of turning around and retracing our path we rode down the sidewalk on Race Track Road to pick up the trail again and repeat the Mobbly Park section and then back to the Sports Complex. Race Track Rd took us right past the Oldsmar Flea Mkt which is open S&S.. Total miles 19.5
Good trail - well marked and wide enough for pedestrians and cyclists- it was really fun exploring these trails during our visit to Tampa - a great way to see Tampa
We felt very safe on this trail during our ride from Courtney Campbell Trail to downtown Clearwater and onto the beach. It was well marked.
This trail provides a beautiful view of the ocean for nearly 10 miles - loved it!!
It has been getting really bad for a while now, people on bikes are traveling to fast. Now electric bikes are making this a very dangerous place to walk
Unfortunately I think that they only way to resolve this is by adding cameras and banning electric bikes
Thank you concerned resident of Dunedin
At the time of writing - December 2022 - the trail actually runs from downtown St Petersburg on 1st Avenue and 1st Street to just beyond East Lake Road beyond Tarpon Springs. At this point the marked trail ends, but cycle lanes are available albeit on the edge of multi lane roads. In total about 45 marked miles from St Pete to East Lake Road. Do not believe any of the other numbers put out there on the web - and no, this is not a 75 mile marked trail today.
From downtown St Pete the trail goes past the stadium, through the warehouse district, St Pete suburbs, through Seminole, Largo, Belleair, Clearwater, Dunedin, Palm Harbor and onto Tarpon Springs. Downtown St Pete has well marked (and separated) cycle lanes, Seminole has lots of bridges - and yes, these add quite a lot of effort to the ride. Water fountains are plentiful along the way at this end of the trail, less so as you head north. The best bits are through Dunedin with breweries and restaurants on the trail and up on to Tarpon Springs where the trail runs down the center of the street.
The trail can be ridden on road bikes or anything more durable and has a 20 mph speed limit for ebikes.
We rode this trail in sections over 3 days. Stayed in Palm Harbor Airbnb Cheerful Coastal Cottage, very close to trail. Not crowded. Breweries and restaurants and wildlife and old Florida scenery. Nice and flat. Leaving St Pete were several overpasses requiring effort from this 67 year old. I drive a Trident Fat Trike, no power assist! 5 stars!
Do y'all know what a loop is? It's where the beginning and end meet back together. No where in this trail can a person complete a loop.Is there a different kind when it comes to trails?
