Pinellas Trail Courtesy Campaign
Pinellas County is running a Pinellas Trail Courtesy Campaign this fall. It is aimed at encouraging safe and friendly behaviors that make the trail inviting to everyone. Keep any eye out for temporary signs along the trail and weekly posts on Pinellas County’s social media pages.
Mural painting may partially close the two Pinellas Trail tunnels in Palm Harbor and Tarpon Springs from Sept. 13 through mid-October. The Trail will remain open, but users are encouraged to use caution when traveling through the work zone. Signage and cones will be in place.
We appreciate your patience as we care for your trail.
The Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail is a linear trail currently extending from St. Petersburg to Tarpon Springs and is a multi-use trail everyone can enjoy. The Trail, created along a portion of abandoned railroad corridor, provides a unique, protected greenspace for walking, jogging, skating, and biking. Pinellas County Parks & Conservation Resources is responsible for the Trails maintenance and operating costs.

Basic rules to help everyone enjoy the trail:
Florida Statute 316.20655 Electric Bicycle regulations – E-Bikes are classified as bicycles under Florida Statues.

Emergency Assistance Markers
Nearly 700 markers are affixed to the pavement at 200 to 300 foot intervals along the Pinellas Trail from downtown St. Petersburg to Tarpon Springs. Each marker has a unique, easily readable number which trail users can give to a 9-1-1 operator in case of an emergency to identify their exact location along the 47-mile trail, allowing for faster response times.
