FL Coast-to-Coast Updates
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 the Good Neighbor Trail at SR 50. Most stretches are close to the Parkway, much road noise, almost no shade, not a particularly interesting ride, except for road bikes looking for speed. Some sections run more away from the Parkway with occasional tree-lined spots. Few facilities nearby (check at trailheads and intersections), bring sunscreen, water, snacks. (Map link and photos below.)

At the south, the Suncoast Trail starts at the end of the Upper Tampa Bay Trail at Lutz Lake Fern Road.
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.
