Skyway Trail

Whether you choose to ride your bike or prefer a leisurely walk, the Skyway Trail promises an enchanting journey. Cyclists will relish the smooth path, with occasional shade from the swaying palm trees. For walkers, there are numerous benches to pause, breathe in the salty air, and marvel at the natural beauty around them.

This multi-use path is renowned for its accessibility and safety, making it suitable for walkers, joggers, and cyclists of all ages and skill levels. The trail offers ample opportunities for enjoying Gulfport's stunning coastal views and immersing yourself in the local flora and fauna.

The Skyway Trail is shorter than the Pinellas Trail for sure, but the secluded boardwalk feels safer and more peaceful than navigating vehicle traffic and constant stops along the paved over railroad tracks of the Pinellas Trail.
