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 and Weedon Island Trails at its northern and southern ends respectively. The route utilizes power line corridors for most of its extent.

Trail users however, can currently access 2.5 miles of multipurpose pathways. The trail begins at another path, the Ream Wilson Trail, and travels South along Coachman Road for one mile until it crosses the Gulf to Bay Boulevard and moves away from roads. It continues south along the power lines for 1.5 miles until ending at Belleair Road. Another segment is currently under construction, beginning at Sunset Point and connecting to the US 19 pedestrian overpass. This segment is expected to be completed in Spring of 2017.

Parking and Trail Access

While trail has no dedicated parking, there are a number of businesses along the route with available parking, as well as a public library and Spectrum Field (601 N. Old Coachman Road) near the trail segment's northern end.

Duke Energy Trail Reviews

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

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.
