Double path pretty much the whole way. Almost no shade besides the last half mile stretch. Very sandy trails at some point. Feels like you’re walking at the beach. Not very much to look at. Only saw birds. Very boring trail in my opinion.

Triple Creek Nature Preserve, 13305 Balm Boyette Rd, Riverview, FL. A little hard to find, no sign at entrance. Sign is at the back of parking area. NO paper maps, so take a photo at display. Walking through old growth timber to marsh to old growth timber to timber farm to scrub and on and on.... Did the trail as a figure "8", made a right after passing through the first tree canopy. LOT of sand in bottom half of "8". After you make the cross over the trail gets GREAT! This part isn't a service road trail. Has a down tree, BUT it's a easy duck under!
