We did a couple of trails. The ones we rode were flat with shade. If your looking for hills and treacherous paths, try Alafia. If you ride street bikes this would be a nice place to go. Lots of bikers and families.

Relatively flat paved loop. Great place to burn off some energy when you don’t have all day to explore all the trails in the area. Quiet ride, and everyone is friendly.

Nice trail for all levels, just bring plenty of water there’s none on the stations because of Covid.

Easy paved trial. I went on a cloudy day and it was fine but if you went on a sunny day you would want some sun protection. Lots of bike traffic, but the path ia wide enough noso its not a problem.

Excellent trail. Was visiting Tampa and was looking for a rural run. Crushed rock path beside the bike path was easy on the legs and feet. Highly recommend. 3 or 4 water stops too to help on hot days/times.

This is a great paved trail loop! We rode there on 12/27/19 and a bridge was flooded so we had to walk around on the pedestrian bridge to get out to the main trail loop. We saw wild turkeys and a a lot of deer! There’s always something new to see! The recent rain has left it wet so the mountain biking trails may be wet. We ride this trail often and sometimes ride out to the levee and up to the Bruce B. Downs entrance to get some extra miles in.

Our first time hiking the full loop and it left us crazy sore after! Didn't walk the asphalt bc we knew that would be folly, but walked the crushed shell path on the shoulder. Also rained off and on for the whole trip which it was NOT supposed to do (10% chance of rain as we set out) but it was welcome and cooling. Side areas were well mowed which was great for hiking along side of the trail. Saw a white tailed doe cross the trail ahead of us, but other than some birds it was pretty devoid of wildlife activity in the rain.
