Local Events and Activities Promoting Health and Wellness in Trinity

While we love to see you at Your Journey Health Club, complete wellness extends beyond the walls of a gym. That’s why we’re suggesting some activities in Trinity Florida to connect you to nature with healthy and outdoor adventures.

Whether you like walking, a swim, or a cuddle with a goat, here’s what to do in Trinity if you want to connect with nature and unplug for a bit.

1. Coastal Anclote Trail

The Coastal Anclote Trail is a 4.5-mile multi-use path that offers a safe and picturesque route for walking, running, and biking. It’s designed to connect trail users to local parks, providing a continuous greenway in southeast Pasco County.

The trail includes a longer route with three spurs, each leading to different recreational areas.

Key Features and Highlights

  • Key Vista Park: Located at the north end of the trail, Key Vista Park offers stunning views of Anclote Key and the Gulf of Mexico. It’s an excellent spot for bird watching, picnicking, and enjoying the natural beauty of Florida’s coastline.
  • Anclote Gulf Park: This park features a popular fishing pier, a dog park, and a scenic boardwalk that connects to Key Vista Nature Park.
  • Anclote River Park: Further south, Anclote River Park boasts a swimming beach and boat launch. The park’s amenities make it a versatile spot for family outings and recreational fun.

The trail is almost entirely shrouded in tree cover for a cool walk even during the hotter months. It covers diverse landscapes from coastal views to wooded areas and open green spaces.

A range of wildlife makes it a great spot for nature observation and photography. Bird watchers, in particular, will find the trail rewarding, as it hosts many native and migratory birds.
