This is one of the nicest parks in the Tampa Bay area. It's got paved portions, boardwalks over pretty tidal creeks and marshes, lots of birds and fish, and expansive views of Tampa Bay. The length is great for hiking or jogging and it looks awesome for hiking.

It was gorgeous! Easy to walk and really neat bridges!

Very well kept trail. Saw plenty of birds and one tortoise. Plenty of shaded stops to stop and drink water.
The only downside is it being so close to the drag strip. I came on a Saturday afternoon and the noise took away quite a bit of the "nature" atmosphere.
Great trail for families. Very clear, designated paths. We took our 3 children and dog around the 5 mile loop and it took us about 2 hours. Very beautiful! We've been twice on the weekends and it hasn't been overly busy at all. Plenty of benches to rest and they even have a drinking fountain for the dogs at the Victorian house entrance. Will be going here regularly.
