The Pinellas Trail goes from St. Petersburg to Tarpon Springs, and is 47 miles (about 75 kilometers) long. Obviously you don’t have to bike or walk the whole thing, but exploring the Pinellas Park area of the trail would be a good way to spend the day. There are amenities along the way, like rest stops and restaurants, and as a “green corridor,” there are accesses to beaches, parks, and other points of interest (see map). Whether you walk, bike, skate, or ride a horse, it’s a scenic trail.
