Started at Fort Cooper area (off 41) and headed North toward Inverness. Great ride! Inverness is a quaint little town nestled right on the Trail and Waterfront. Farmer’s Market, water stops, restaurants in Inverness Square, David’s World of Cycle on the Trail, and beautiful Florida landscape and natural habitants
Beautiful waterside drive. Parked at maximo Park. Wandered around there a little bit and then hit the trail. Some of the trail , the water is hidden. Conditions were great. Very smooth trail. Enjoy
I only wish it were longer. About 7 miles round trip. We parked at Maximo Park. Be careful crossing underneath 275.
We went during the even to watch the sunset and see the skyway lights. I’ve biked this trail twice in the evening (7-9pm) during the week. If you choose to park at the rest stop just be aware that you will have to bike on the road to get to the trail. That area is quite busy on the weekends with people fishing, kayaking and doing water sports, so we preferred to go when it’s not as HOT and with less traffic. The trail is close to Maximo Park. That’s the closest parking to the trail in the South side or you can park at the rest stop off of I-275. Maximo Park closes at sunset although they seem to keep the gates open later than that. We road from Maximo and a little further than the map indicates and it was almost a 10mile ride round trip. There are 2 bridges and from one of the bridges you can see the skyway. Beautiful scenery as the trail is a long the water half of the way. The only downfall is the trail is right next to I-275 so it can get pretty noisy.
Lots of things to see including primates! You can make extended trips by going to parks, beaches, out to lunch or on the sponge docks of Tarpon Springs. Great trail!
Fantastic ride, even on a hot summer day. A stop in Dunedin for lunch and gelato at the bike store made it even more enjoyable. Not as much scenery along the way but lots of great stops in the small towns.
My fiancé and I liked this trail because it was a change of scenery for us. We typically go to Flatwoods trail. The breeze from the bay and wide open spaces looking over the bay between Hillsborough and Pinellas was really nice. There are two bridges you have to go over. One much bigger than the other. They offer a nice midway challenge. We parks at Ben T Davis and went all the way to the other side and back. At total of nearly 16 miles.
I have been going to this trail for years. A while back, it was free to enter the park other than a small toll to get there ($0.35). I started parking at the baseball facility a couple of miles before the park entrance and rode my bike in for free. The path into the park is as good as the path in the park and adds some mileage to the ride.
Trail follows 301 like an old road. Feels historical but noisy due to traffic did not get into wooded part was closed. Not long enough for good ride w/o that section.
Covered trail with lost of side places to stop. A few bridges over roads as well they need to connect the South and North sections and will be it would be great..
Across the bay trail no cover. Expanse views of the bay cars speeding by. Did the trail from Pinellas side and combined Bayshore and Reems trail to get 24 mile loop. Stopped at Rocky point and had lunch nice day!
If you are looking to add millage connects to Reems trail then bayshore trail. Not cover on this section under power lines.
