Pinellas Trail Closure
A detour remains in place on the Pinellas Trail just north of West Bay Drive due to maintenance work. Pinellas County continues work on repairing a stormwater pipe that passes under the trail. Trail signage marks the detour, which follows sidewalks along 4th Avenue NW, 11th Street SW, and 8th Avenue NW.
Pinellas Trail Maintenance
Maintenance continues on the Pinellas Trail, from Rosery Road to Ponce De Leon Boulevard. The trail will remain open at half width through the end of September for trail users' protection. Please be aware of posted traffic signs and travel slowly through the area.
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.

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.
