PINELLAS TRAIL

pinellas trailThe Fred E. Marquis Pinellas Trail is a linear park and recreation trail that became open to the public in December of 1990 and extends over 30 miles from Tarpon Springs to St. Petersburg, running through Largo FL. This abandoned CSX railway corridor has been transformed into a scenic, safe place for outdoor enthusiasts to bike, walk, jog, and rollerblade. The trail consists of amenities such as bike racks, benches, water fountains, and rest areas. Approximately 90,000 people a month enjoy the natural landscaping that shade areas of the trail and connects many of Pinellas County’s most picturesque parks. The trail is a great way to explore Pinellas County Florida as views of coastal waterways, parks, roadways and residential neighborhoods are all lined along the route. Eight overpasses were built with safety in mind, allowing trail-goers to cross major intersections easily with no need to stop. The Pinellas Trail allows residents and visitors to exercise and enjoy the outdoors at a place amazingly close to their own front door. There are many homes and subdivisions in Largo directly on the Pinellas Trail. Owning a home on the trail is a great investment.
