A new segment of the Courtney Campbell Causeway Trail opened in June, linking Tampa to Clearwater and making it feasible for joggers, cyclists, skaters and pedestrians to safely cross from city to city and take in the breathtaking view of Old Tampa Bay. Designed and constructed by the Florida Dept. of Transportation, the new 4 mile segment links Tampa to Clearwater, where it ends at Clearwater’s Bayshore Blvd.
The new paved roadway on the Courtney Campbell Causeway’s should side provides a safe path on which to exercise and unwind. The trail is also fully accessible to persons with disabilities. Sightseers and people exercising will enjoy the picturesque scenery of Old Tampa Bay. The trail is part of a comprehensive set of trails that in the future will help connect trails to the Ream Wilson Clearwater Trail and eventually provide trail access to the Gulf of Mexico. It will also help make trail connections to the Pinellas Trail and the Duke Energy Trail, which will allow trail access to north and south Pinellas County.
