Keep reading to learn more about three of our favorite cycling trails near St Pete Beach.
Fort De Soto Park
The 6.4-mile Fort De Soto Park Trail is easily the most popular place to cycle near St Pete Beach. Not only does Fort De Soto Park have a wide variety of on-site bike rentals, but this key is also among the most beautiful isles along Florida’s Gulf Coast. This paved trail meanders along this skinny key with easy access to multiple beaches, snorkeling locales, and even a busy fishing pier. There are several convenient parking lots located along the island, so we urge our guests to bring along your own bikes.
For active cyclists and those looking for a day-long bicycling excursion, we recommend the Pinellas Trail, an extensive, peaceful 34-mile trail that swings from St Petersburg all the way up to Tarpon Springs. Pinellas County began transforming this once-abandoned railroad into a tranquil, well-paved bicycle trail. You can easily pick up Pinellas Trail near Circle Park in Pasadena. Head north from Pasadena to explore many tropical communities along the Gulf Coast. The trail also features a lengthy bridge that cuts across the mouth of a large bayou which connects with the Gulf of Mexico. If you need a bicycle rental, visit Lenny’s Surf Shop, also known as Beach Cyclist Sports Center, located in downtown St Pete Beach. Lenny’s is a short, pretty cycle from Pasadena.
Exploring the lively community of Pass-a-Grille Beach is already one of the top things to do in St Pete Beach, so why not enhance the visit with a peaceful bicycle ride? There is a convenient 1.1-mile bicycle lane along Pass-a-Grille Way that features fantastic views of the serene waterways, unique architecture, a yacht club, seafood restaurants, and eclectic shops. Swing over to Merry Pier for an inexpensive hourly St Pete Beach bike rental.
