As a Gulf Coast Floridian, it is often difficult finding interesting hikes along Florida's beautiful west coast. Emerson Point is one of the exceptions. Views of the Skyway Bridge & mouth of Tampa Bay from the heavily venerated north shore are terrific. Lightly used even "in season", it feels like being lost in a jungle wilderness.

First FL hike did the north part of the loop with the lookout tower first day did the south loop with the Indian mound the second day. FLOWERS were a blooming!!!

North part of loop along bay, was more primitive than the south part. Parking wasn't a problem at Indian Mound, pickup a map at info board.

My girlfriend and I spent the afternoon walking the trial it was so beautiful. Seen some wild animals there to. The only down side was that there was not enough of trash cans. So people are throwing there trash on the ground. Maybe add a couple more trash cans!!

Totally didn't expect to see so much beauty on this amazing historical trail! Clean restrooms, nice welcome center, beautiful views of the water, educational points along the way about the history of this amazing place and great for dog walking. I highly recommend visiting if you get the chance.

Shaded, flat, and sandy. A nice quiet loop in a really nice state park.
