The Suncoast Trail is a 42-mile paved trail that stretches from Hillsborough County through Pasco and ending in Hernando County. The shared path is owned by Florida Department of Transportation, Turnpike Enterprise, and operated and maintained by the three counties’ Parks and Recreation Departments. The majority of the trail is in Pasco County which is 21.6 miles long.
There are trailheads located at SR 54 and the Suncoast Parkway with grass parking spaces and paved handicap parking spaces. There are benches along the entire trail and some sheltered tables as well. You will find two wildlife viewing areas on the Pasco section of the trail. Current access to the trail is available at all crossing of public roads. Additional parking is available at Crews Lake Park in Shady Hills. There are watering stations along the path that our staff fills on a daily basis.
You will find certain amenities at some of the intersections such as a port-o-let, restroom, public telephone, water supply or cooler and four information kiosks.
