This is a good place for trail running, etc., but Balm Boyette Park is best for mountain biking. The single-track trails are for bike use only. There are maps posted all over the place, so it's hard to get lost. Be sure to bring plenty of water!

I ride this trail system about 3 times a week ,if you hit all the trails you can do about about 15-20 miles so I don't know where they get only 3.5 . The best trail all the way in back is Ridgline and is closed during the rainy summer but plenty of others out there that are great . Great place to train since there is plenty of flat double track and difficult trails for a good mix. Contact the local swamp club to go on a group ride tour around the park since it's a big place and easy to get lost.

Awesome trails - took the kids & they handled the green trails no problem. It's a 2 mile ride on a dirt road from parking lot to trails entrance. Go to swamp mountain bike club website for trail maps . Def do again !

This was a nice find during a business trip to the Tampa area. I was looking for a trail and AllTrails prompted me with this one, I wasn't disappointed, and at the time I went, near sunset on a weekday, there were very few others on the trails.

There are about 3 entries for the Balm-Boyetter natural area here. This series of trails offers dirt roads, miles of open scrub and swamp land as well as several single track mountain bike trails throughout the area. Good for trail running or hiking too. I saw 5 cyclists while I was there. Lots of room to get away out here.

Nice group of trails suitable for trail running, or better yet, mountain biking. No real hills, but lots of open space for riding or running.
