“Miles of easy beautiful cycling”

The Courtney Campbell trail is an unparalleled cycling route. You cruise right along or above the bay on a safe beautifully maintained trail.

If you get there early, you can park at Ben T Davis Beach on the Tampa side of the causeway. If not, finding a parking spot can be challenging. We usually start at Cypress Point Park which is a couple miles south along the shore, but it also connects to the trail via a safe cycling path. And now they've added a trail over on the Pinellas side that goes right up to Safety Harbor. What better way to reward a cycling trip than to stop for Ice Cream, or Coffee, or a Good Meal, or a myriad of other Safety Harbor treats.

We love to do the causeway on inline skates. Eight miles across from Clearwater, Whiskey Joe's or Gaylords for lunch, and a nice blade back. The pavement is smooth, the bridges provide a little more exercise and nice views for a water break, and the bay provides endless vistas.
The only problem is the construction on the Tampa side. They are repairing hurricane damage and adding drainage under the road, and the trail devolves into pavement patches with scattered gravel for about 1/2 mile. The 12' trail also narrows to about 4' in places. It's OK if you go slow, but, I hope they finish soon and put it back to the way it was!

We came upon info about this pedestrian/bike trail while researching places to get some walking in. It is quite unique in that it is dedicated to non-vehicle traffic and it goes over the bay! We started at Ben T Davis beach where there were restrooms and parking and we walked about 2 miles out and two miles back. We could have kept going for hours but the hot mid-day sun and our 60 year old joints wouldn’t allow it. Some shade along the way would have been appreciated but my sun visor helped a lot. I recommend wearing lots of sunscreen and clothing to cover your neck and shoulders to avoid sunburn.

... and water all around! We were driving from Clearwater to Rocky Point, all the way on Courtney Campbell Causeway, along which the trail runs. Stunning views of the sparkling blue waters of the bay. The trail is very well designed and maintained, with some nicely kept rest areas, benches, etc. It is quite an open area, no big trees or shade. Must be rather safe to exercise on it, we just saw several determined bikers there.
