Trail goers may think they're miles from civilization along some parts of the Pinellas County Fred Marquis Pinellas Trail, as they travel through deep glades of live oaks, trailing Spanish moss, tidal streams teeming with wildlife. The Trail also leads to a number of County, City and State parks along its route.
Pinellas Trails, Inc. exists to support, enhance and protect the Pinellas Trail now and for future generations.
All members of Pinellas Trails, Inc. are volunteers. Specific questions regarding the organization or its membership, should be directed to any board member at firstname.lastname@example.org.
