Great ride. Mostly shaded with lots of natural habitat to see. Would definitely recommend.
Started at John B Sargent Park and rode north up into the Hillsborough River State Park mostly through wooded trails. The first few miles are paved and follows along the east side of Hwy 301. Once you cross back over to the west side of 301, it's unpaved the rest of the way. I veered off the designated trail at Dead River road and headed west to the river and then north on a path that follows the river for a good ways. I eventually found my way into the park. The trails are very beautiful and secluded. It is a low lying area, so it's best to take this ride during a dry spell when it has not rained for a while. I did it on a hybrid bike with 32 cc tires without any problems. The entire trip was 25 miles and took me about 4 hours. Highly recommended!
Did the 46 miles and truly enjoyed it. Did it in three different sections. Will do this trail again soon.

Wonderful riding experience through the "real Florida". Trail is in great condition and well marked, with frequent benches and rest areas. Scenic throughout with much wildlife viewing. Bluebird boxes have been placed along the length of the trail and are being well used by the birds. The area along the water near Inverness was a particular highlight, but the entire length of trail is worthwhile for repeated trips.
I've ridden all over this country and the Pinellas Trail ranks with the best of them. Great variety of features to see along the entire length of the trail. I always appreciate seeing the community embrace a trail with artwork along the way, and this trail constantly entertains. Very wide in most places allowing for separate lanes of travel for bikes in both directions plus walkers. Most major road crossings featured bridges keeping riders safe. Plenty of access to connector trails throughout to extend your ride across the Tampa Bay region.
This is a worthy destination trail and one I would welcome riding again.
Trail is mostly a wide sidewalk paralleling the road, so not much for scenery, but a welcome connector to better trails on both ends. Used the Druid Road trail to ride between the Duke Energy / Wilson Clearwater / Courtney Campbell Causeway trails to the Pinellas Trail. Easy to find and navigate and a welcome alternative to riding on the road.
This may be the longest stretch of trail over water in the country, which made for a very unique ride. The entire trail parallels the highway, so expect noise the entire way. Even though the trail is well used, I had no issues riding at a good pace on a weekday, but I would expect weekends would be much more crowded. Easy to connect to the Wilson Clearwater Trail and Druid Road Trail to extend your ride as part of the Pinellas Trail loop.
This is a nice connector trail to the Courtney Campbell Causeway. Easy to ride and follow, but don't expect to go fast.
Trail is in good condition and I'm grateful to have a safe alternative to road riding, but do not expect much in terms of scenery. Majority of the ride follows the right of way underneath the power line towers. This is an efficient trail to reach better destinations.
Rode from Dunedin to the Courtney Campbell Causeway, then returned to Duke Energy to loop back to the Pinellas Trail.
Began at Green Pond trailhead, mm10. Was surprised to find the lot completely full by 10am on a Monday, but the holiday probably had much to do with this. Was advised they allow overflow parking along the shoulders of the parking lot and trail and I had no issues doing this.
Rode north 19.5 miles to the end at Mabel, then turned around back to Green Pond. Straight as an arrow & flat as a pancake the entire way. Only one real road crossing in that entire stretch. Very scenic throughout, although I thought the section between mm20 to mm25 north of Bay Lake trailhead was the highlight. Plenty of wildlife to keep you entertained.
I experienced none of the surface issues mentioned in other reviews. Some minor tree root bumps, many have been marked. Some filled potholes and a couple new sinkholes that were easy to avoid. I've ridden on much worse. Averaged over 14mph on the entire 39 mile ride & I typically consider anything over 12mph a fast ride.
We started at Weaver Park in north Dunedin and rode north through Palm Harbor and Tarpon Springs. We then headed east to East Lake and the north end of the Duke Energy Trail. We rode south to John Chestnut Sr. Park. Our return trip was the opposite back to Weaver Park for 39 miles total. I know I will return to this trail again. Lots of opportunity to stop at breweries and restaurants.
