Good pavement. Partially shaded. Rest shelters every couple miles or so (they've come in handy during sudden downpours). Polite cyclists, skaters and pedestrians. Bridge over Laurel Rd should be completed in latter 2018. Restrooms available are kybos.

It was a very secluded trail so not much traffic to deal with. We met some people at the end of the trail and found a pub about 2 miles away and had a beer. The Pinellas trail is a little nicer if you are...More
