Photos of Alafia River State Park Nature Trips Trails

If you're going for a ride, this place is ideal. Unfortunately for us hikers they didn't leave a lot for us. There is only one hiker only trail I found, and to their credit it was a great little trail. About as challenging a hike as you can find in the very flat state of Florida. Also a ton of off shoots with nice little prizes. The problem was that trail was short. I completed it in about a half an hour. Every other trail available to me was a horse trail. Most of it was not under the canopy, rather wide, with no challenge or view. Every time I saw a trail I wanted to walk, it was bikes only. After walking on a trail that ran under power lines for a couple miles, I turned back and went home. Wanted to like this park, but it felt like hiking was an afterthought for them.
