A wonderfully scenic river walk with plenty to see and do along the way. There's a couple of children's playground on the way so kids will love it. And at Curtis Hixon Park, there's even a public water fountain that will sure to delight children. There's plenty of river front bar and cafe along the way as well.

I’m sure I would have rated it a 5, but the issue was in Dunedin. We were heading north and There is a bridge that is close off; so have to take a sharp turn onto the sidewalk and cut over grass as well. Well my fiancé took the turn too hard and took a bad spill. Broken wrist, sore ribs and some road rash. Basically the area needs to be marked better with the turn onto the sidewalk. Beware if you are headed that way.

Thanks to all those that stopped and assisted, especially the nurse from St Pete and the woman that transported us back.

Took the kids and grandparents on a nature trip with Dave as our guide. Dave was amazing and so knowledgeable about all the fauna and wildlife. I can’t wait to return in the winter and actually hike the trails!

I walked the friendship bridge a week ago, it was nice and quiet. In the afternoons it's gets so busy, it's best to go in the morning.

Holy hot! Wear sunscreen and a hat, bring bug spray and lots of water, and you'll have a great hike! Can get muddy in some areas. Look out tower is on the first boardwalk if you park at the history building. The area deemed "look out point" on the map is a pretty walk but not much of a look out.

Well-maintained and kid friendly wide trails

Top notch

Don't be mislead. This is no hiking trail. This is a paddling adventure only.

Great trail with easy access throughout. Wonderful for hiking, walking, or biking. It is wide, paved and well marked. A real gem in the Clearwater Dunedin area.

Took this trail to work for several years working in downtown Dunedin. Great for commuting, scenic at times, and awesome for biking to many different breweries. Plenty of places right on the trail to stop and eat or drink. Runs from Tarpon down to St Pete!!

A very peaceful place to come for walking, jogging and serves for some amazing photography. A perfect place to have a picnic or walk your dog with plenty of space.

Close to home and a great place to come walk the dog or go for a stroll. They could renovate a few of the trails and the huts but other than that it's a great place to bring the family for a picnic or a walk.

I love what the city has done with this trail. A scenic tour of Downtown Tampa with a very modern design. Great for a stroll or a jog. I come out here at least once every other week.

peaceful place.. fishing, kayaking

As other reviewers have noted, yes this is right next to the dump. Aside from the smells, there is trash littered throughout the unpaved trails, including a lot of broken glass and what appeared to be soiled tissues. This trail also is right near what I believe is a Tampa Police Department training area, I heard lots of sirens and rapid acceleration/deceleration. But there is an observation tower on the Southwest side of the peninsula.

Incredibly beautiful! Saw 3 turtles, huge bird on a branch watching everything. Probably an Osprey. Saw another huge bird fly over carrying an 8” fish! Must have been an Uber bird, or an Eagle. Very well marked, plenty of benches, great hike!

Beautiful scenery and things to do along the way. Great for people of all ages and abilities, pet friendly. The trail could definitely use more trees for shade. It’s only April, but the sun was really hot by 11:00 am.

It’s next to a landfill worst park I have ever been too will not go back!

Easy loop nature trail. Well marked and nicely placed wildlife identification signs. Good show of the dynamic ecosystems of coastal zones that rebound quickly after disturbances.

Huge disappointment! Deeply saddened we didn’t find a perfectly preserved washed, rinsed, and dried prehistoric shark’s tooth right on the trail! Seriously though, AllTrails has the map of this badly botched. It’s a fine park, nice hike, dog liked it a lot. Saw NOT ONE bug.

Gorgeous run along Tampa’s Riverwalk. Beautiful views and beautiful people. There were also many military informational plaques and Memorial’s along the route that I thought were very impressive. If you do a run, enjoy it... but try and go back later for a leisurely stroll so you can see and read all of the history along the Riverwalk. I sacrificed some of my run just so I could stop numerous times and read the history.
