Short Trail (.3 of a mile) Unveiled In Tampa Heights

I suppose technically it's a trail. But at three-tenths of a mile it takes about three minutes or so to bike it. It's a new trail that intersects Palm Avenue in Tampa Heights and runs along the shadow of a I-275 exit ramp into downtown Tampa. The trail leads into a neighborhood that kinds leads into the edge of downtown. The nice thing is that the trail does lead north to a gorgeous community gardens in Tampa Heights. On one hand it's Tampa, so a foot of paved trail is nice and a pleasant addition to the local landscape. On the other hand, we need to have higher expectations than celebrating a trail that runs less than a half-mile. Tampa needs a trail system that allows people to travel from one section of the city to another. Let's just Tampa has a whole ways to go before we can throw a parade.
