First Completed Segment of Coast-to-Coast Trail Opens in Pinellas
When complete, the Coast-to-Coast Connector Trail will extend 250 miles across Florida from St. Petersburg to the Cape Canveral area.
PINELLAS COUNTY – Officials here are officially opening this morning (July 20) a five-mile segment that will eventually become a part of the Coast-to-Coast Connector Trail.
The Pinellas segment is the first in the Coast-to-Coast to be completed. When the entire Coast-to-Coast Connector Trail is complete, it will extend 250 miles from west to east across Florida. It will start in St. Petersburg and end at the Atlantic Ocean in the Cape Canaveral area on the east coast. The biking and hiking trail will connect shorter existing trails into the longer route.
This connector will be the first of its kind in Florida and is a major priority within the Florida Greenways and Trails System Plan developed by the Office of Greenways and Trails.
Pinellas’ new five-mile segment will extend the Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail and connect it to future trails in Pasco County. It can be found at the southeast corner of East Lake Road and Keystone Road in Tarpon Springs.
