To the reviewer moaning about e-bikes you should grow up, stop spreading ridiculous ideas about them and get over yourself. E-bikes are a 40 billion dollar industry which is projected to be a near 120 billion industry by 2030. Florida classifies e-bikes exactly as any other bicycle. They’re not electric “motorcycles”. I find that “regular” cyclists seem to be salty for the sheer fact that there’s now just more bikes on the roads and paved trails which because of their self entitlement they believe are theirs alone. Get a grip, get a life and most importantly make love to the idea of e-bikes because you’re only going to see more of them. I’ve seen people, couples and even families put enjoying trails and riding exactly the same as other cyclists. Go out and enjoy the Pinellas Trail. It’s fun and gets you out of the house.
It is with very mixed feelings that I am leaving a negative review. We have been riding the Legacy Trail for 3 years, every April. In that time the danger has increased with the greater presence of fat tire ebikes ridden at top speed with no concern for safety or courtesy. The riders are using their ebike as a motorcycle and riding with no assist whatsoever at top speed. Many of the bikes are so quiet that they are upon a regular cyclist or walker/runner before you know it. There is NEVER a call out or signal with a bell or slowing . The lack of respect for other trail users is appalling as well as a huge safety issue. At the suggestion of a Legacy Trail maintenance person I have also written the Legacy Trail directors asking for them to look into this issue. I hope others will express their desire for implementation of the safety rules posted along the trail.
Used this trail from clearwater and hopped off to get to caladesi. Amazing best trail I’ve ever riden, lots of cute shops and restaurants along the trail for pit stops.
Beautiful relaxing ride along Charlotte Harbor
I didn’t see another way to provide this feedback. We parked a little further down Lutz Lake Fern and rode from there to the endpoint on VanDyke. Enjoyed the ride other than we lost a couple miles not parking where we originally wanted to.
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!
The proliferation of e motorcycles (some still call them e-bikes) on trails (such as Pinellas Trail) is making many of the trails unsafe for pedestrians and bicyclists. There are sections of Pinellas Trail where it is safer to bike on the street then the trail. A Clearwater police officer told me that some of the increase is motorists who have lost their licenses i.e DUI’s are using e-motorcycles to get around. around.Someone
TrailLink needs to update this trail.
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.
