Duke Energy Trail Description

Pinellas County has embarked on the impressive task of creating a 75-mile chain of trails, to be known as the Pinellas Trail Loop. When complete, Duke Energy Trail will be a 22.5 mile link in that chain, connecting to the existing Pinellas Trail and Weedon Island Trail at its northern and southern ends, respectively. The route utilizes power line corridors for most of its extent.

Currently, trail users can access 4.1 miles of multipurpose pathway in two disconnected sections. The southern segment begins at another path, the Ream Wilson Clearwater Trail, and travels south along Old Coachman Road for 1 mile until it crosses the Gulf to Bay Boulevard (Route 60) and moves away from roads. It continues south along the power lines for another 1.5 miles until ending at Belleair Road.

The northern segment begins at Sunset Point Road and travels north 1.6 miles to Enterprise Road, including a pedestrian overpass of US 19.

Parking and Trail Access

For the southern trail segment, parking is available adjacent to Spectrum Field (601 N. Old Coachman Road). Another option is parking in the nearby Northeast Coachman Park (1120 Old Coachman Road), along the Ream Wilson Clearwater Trail; restrooms are also available in the park.

For the northern segment, parking is available off Sunset Point Road, just east of Skyline Drive.

Closer to Completion

This morning, I was on the Southern section of trail, which was open, and saw workers at the North gap installing the lighting system at the intersection the trail has with Countryside Boulevard. The work on the trail has been slow, but steady.

As others have correctly said, this trail is not the prettiest, but a few natural plantings could easily change this. Also, there is no shade under the powerlines, but this trail is great for exercise and commuters. Best of all, the trail acts as a connection to the Pinellas Trail, the Ream Wilson Trail, and other trails, heading North and East allowing the N.E. parts of Pinellas County to connect with the C2C, Florida’s Coast-to-Coast Trail from St. Petersburg all the way to Titusville.

So, all things considered, it beats the heck out of riding alongside cars. Expected completion is scheduled for Fall, 2022.

Very Confusing

We’ll-groomed trail but very confusing ( and not we’ll-marked) after you pass under Rt. 19. Watch out for the disc golfers! ¿

This trail is underwhelming compared to other trails in the area. But as a connector trail on a route, or as a commuter trail it is fine. Just not worth going g out of your way for

Best place in my neighborhood for a walk

I can't wait for the Countryside Blvd to Enterprise Rd trail to be completed! I have a back problem and the crooked sidewalks around my neighborhood just kills my back, I have started taking the trail from Enterprise road to Sunset Point road. All together it is about 6 miles round trip. The trail is beautifully constructed and the bridge over Rt 19 is nothing short of amazing. Well done Duke Energy. The portion of the trail that goes past Top-of-the-World golf course is just a wonderful view. I can't golf right now, but seeing everyone out there enjoying themselves gives me hope. The handicap parking and access at the Sunset Point road location is very well done. I have no idea how many people get to use it, but it couldn't be any more well done. I think it is a real tribute to Duke Energy for participating with Pinellas County to bring this community asset to our area. God bless everyone who is involved in these projects.


More of a connecting trail

If you are looking to add millage connects to Reems trail then bayshore trail. Not cover on this section under power lines.

not much to see

There wasn’t much to see on this trail. Of the beautiful trails in this area this was my least favorite.

Duke Energy signage.

Be aware that some signage on the Weam Wilson trail refers to this trail as the ' Duke ' energy trail.

Good for getting to ballgames

The trail which is wide and in good shape leads directly past Spectrum Field where the Threshers play and in March you can catch Phillies spring training games. Also very convenient for commutes to St. Pete College. The path is broken up by frequent cross streets with adequate signage and a signal at Gulf to Bay, but riding some portions at night would not be advised due to poor or little lighting. More suited for casual rides, walking or skating.
