trail locations for Florida

great day hike, takes you out to a point that is beach and ocean. it does loop as long on you ver to the right going back toward the parking area. some tall grass, nothing crazy but it is a nice option versus the out & back on same trail.

The Wilderness trail was closed. We tried it but it was impassible due to high water. The Black Water Cutoff trail was listed as open but it too was too muddy and wet to use. There were warning signs that said trails may have standing water in rainy season May to October. I guess we were still in the rainy season although the weather was fine. Maybe further in the winter eould work better

Did some geocaching and biking. A portion of the 5.9 trail is clearly defined. The second part of the loop has not been cut in a while. Used Garmin along the trail. Some very sandy areas. Over all beautiful area with water views.

Great park lots to see . Kids love it , playground is great .....

Great little trail. My dog loves it because it's not too crowded.

Great park just outside tampa. 2 dollars to park but great for dogs! Park manager puts out water and Dog watering stations too! A bit muddy in spots but can easily walk around the muddy areas.

Beautiful Florida trail

Over grown trails, and closed for hunting.

very nice scenery and boardwalks.

beautiful trail

It was so much fun! Tried to do the whole trail combo but got stuck on the purple trail due to the flooding! Can't wait to go back! Saw some wild pigs, turtles, and tons of butterflies!

I visited on Thanksgiving weekend last year, driving from the east entrance all the way down to Flamingo and back. It was a beautiful day, and I got out on the trails in many locations along the park road. Happily, I was able to see lots of wildlife (gators, turtles, deer, egrets, herons, anhingas, osprey and a few huge spiders...and also happily, no snakes). I soon realized that it wasn't far enough into the colder months to significantly limit the often relentless mosquitos, particularly in the southern part of the park. I still was able to thoroughly enjoy my visit however.

I definitely agree with the 'moderate' rating, not for the extreme beginners. despite the minimal elevation change, there was a lot of up and down and obstacles to hike around. I did this hike this morning for the first time and I loved it! A little buggy, but it is still hot season here in florida. I recommend bug spray. I love that the trail is mostly shaded, very fun trail overall!

We love this trail!! It's beautiful, well kept and clean. There plenty of restroom stops and places to picnic. Also a place for kids to play :-)
Two $$ to park

This park was perfect for a family afternoon out! Lots for the kids and adults, but mostly a very beautiful park.

Nice quiet paved trail with tree coverage. Beautiful boardwalks that go out through the mangroves and to the water. Stations with dog bags and trash cans placed along trails periodically.
