Skyway Bridge Trail Description

Panoramic views of Tampa Bay: That’s it, that’s the pitch for this recreational path at the southern tip of St. Petersburg. For uninterrupted views of the bay accessible by bike, this trail is hard to beat. The trail extends south from Pinellas Point Drive, paralleling Sunshine Skyway Lane. It then climbs until its alongside I-275, separated by a fence, and you get your first taste of stunning sea views. The paved pathway then diverts from the highway and enters Skyway Fishing Pier State Park. While at intervals, the ocean is screened by thick rows palm trees and other vegetation, the trail opens up again and again to expose the jewel-toned waters of the bay, with freight vessels dotting the water and the iconic curves and cables of the Skyway Bridge in the distance. The trail ends in a parking area and beach access point within the park.

Note that there is an entrance fee for all people entering the Skyway Fishing Pier State Park. Consult the official website for current rates.

Parking and Trail Access

You can park at Maximo Park near the north end of the trail (Pinellas Point Drive S & Sunshine Skyway Lane) and then carefully cross under I-275 and then cross Pinellas Point Drive to the start of the trail.
