This is a day use trail through Florida’s most populous county, used by residents for exercise and commuting.
From St. Petersburg north to Largo, the surroundings are very urban. It’s not until you’re north of Clearwater that the corridor has a visual buffer of green space around it.
Hotels are within a mile or two at several points where the trail crosses major highways, and a few adjoin the trail in Dunedin.
There are numerous parks that serve as trailheads with water and restrooms. Camping, however, is not permitted. One commercial campground is trailside in Ozona.
The Pinellas Trail also serves as the westernmost segment of the Florida Coast to Coast Trail, a state-spanning route more than 200 miles to Titusville on the Atlantic Coast.
