Anclote Coastal Trail Alternatives Analysis Study
This recently completed study was a Pasco County MPO sponsored planning study to investigate alternative alignments and identify a preferred route for a multiuse bicycle/pedestrian trail segment to connect to the future extension of the Pinellas Trail that currently ends north of the Anclote River in Tarpon Springs, to Pasco County’s Anclote Gulf Park, Anclote River Park and Key Vista Nature Park. The final public open house was held on June 17, 2015. Click here for a map of the preferred alternative presented at the meeting.
