This 42-mile trail parallels the Suncoast Parkway from Lutz Lake Fern Road in Hillsborough County, through Pasco County, to Hernando County (US Hwy 98). It's part of the Coast-to-Coast Trail between the link to the Starkey Wilderness Trail and (future) link to Good Neighbor Trail at SR 50. Most stretches along the highway are not particularly interesting rides, but others run through natural areas. Mostly remote and unshaded with few facilities nearby (check at trailheads and intersections), bring sunscreen, water, snacks. (Map link and photos below.)

The Starkey Wilderness Trail meets the Suncoast Trail after about 7 miles. From this point, the trail is part of the Florida Coast-to-Coast Trail until it reaches SR 50, where it will eventually connect to the Good Neighbor Trail in Brooksville.
