Description
Waypoints (0)

This level paved multi-use trail has some beautiful views of the bay and neighborhoods along the way. Accessibility: There are multiple designated handicapped-accessible parking spaces in the lot off of 1st Ave SE (southern end of the route) with multiple striped access aisles. The trail surface is paved concrete and typically at least six feet wide. The estimated grade is flat (all 1% or less) so the route will likely be traversable for most wheelchairs/mobility equipment or strollers.

Pavement is relatively smooth and good for inline skating. Must be extra vigilant when there is high traffic, most walkers are looking down at their cellphones.

The North Trail is a disappointing trail and I doubt I would ride it again. It’s not well marked (Shame on you Pinellas Co. & the city of St. Pete) and the trail alternates between city roads ( some city bike lanes were wide and well marked and other lanes were very small) and a wide paved bike trail that is crowded. There are some beautiful views of the bay and houses along the trail but it’s not marked well. But it’s part of the adventure, right?

If you go to the parking lot according to directions there is a fee. Google directions to the north shore aquatic center which is 1 mile away and parking is free

Nice view of the Bay. Can be a little crowded and you share the path with bikes

Ok. So I’m truly a mountain girl at heart. This was really a nice trail but after being in the mountains I want hills, rolling, rocks and views. This was lovely for flat landing it!

I ran a 5 mile section in the downtown St Petersburg/coffee pot bayou area. Nice concrete path. The area can get a little crowded. Serious runners will want to go in the earlier hours.

First to Review

A large paved trail with fantastic views of the Tampa Bay, great for a walk or a ride on your bicycle! Great sites on the trail: downtown st. Pete; 2 large Banyan trees; several parks; human sundial; Vinoy Hotel; Snell Isle neighborhood plus many more. A great write-up on this trail can be found here http://www.gutterpupadventures.com/the-north-bay-trail-along-the-st-petersburg-shoreline/
