This trail is a local nature preserve. It is a mild trail with only one small hill. It is a great place for young riders to develop bike handling skills. Ice water stands are provided around the preserve. It is a good look at what natural Florida looks like. For some reason they don't advertise you can bring bikes but since I live 4 blocks from the entrance it is a favorite spot for me and my Grandkids. There is also a museum, gift shop and playroom, as well as a playground and picnic areas. It's great for a birthday party or family outing.

Easy trails that cover pine and scrub lowlands, as well as boardwalks over Lake Maggiore. A gorgeous respite in the middle of St. Pete
