I've walked the bridle paths twice and I absolutely loved it! Seeing the horses (quite frequently) and other nature is wonderful. It's a bit of a drive but I'd go there all the time if I could.

Led a group of boy scouts on 20 miles inside this park yesterday. It was a great day, best trails were the red, yellow and the Greenbelt (marked by white markers). Green and blue trails were very wide but sandy, saw some horseback riders on them.

this park has a series of trails and a leg of the green belt trail, also a spur of woods locally called Johnston woods that connects with Lakeland county park. this app shows the more popular trail, however there is so much more to explore within this great park including a series of lovely bubbling streams, historic sites as well as the footprints of old houses; foundations, brickwork even artifacts like old wagon parts for the more adventurous of you willing to go off the marked trails a bit.

Loads of great pine needle filled trails. Horse trails get sandy, but the white trail is ideal for running. Guard booth off of Sunrise Hwy to Vets and back is about 7 miles. Bug spray a must in the summer.

Easy trail to walk. Bug spray is a must and pants if its not too hot. Some great views of the river and plenty of wildlife around. Deer, Osprey, Turkeys, Chipmunks are just some of the wildlife to be seen. Some unmarked trails branch off the main trails. The parks recently reopened trout hatchery is also an enjoyable stop.

For someone getting into hiking, this is a great park to start. Very flat with great views of the river. 3 main trails to walk on. Definitely will go back!

Great for walking and hiking, however if you are unfamiliar with the area and the trails you may get lost. We tried to follow the red trail but ended up on the blue trail and then finished on the green trail. A little confusing, but overall great place to explore. Tons of wildlife so it is definitely a beautiful experience!

I was off trail while hiking here and doing some photography I found one tick between me and my girlfriend. Wear long pants and make sure you check yourself over and the ticks won't be an issue. Other then that trails are nice a little sparsely marked but not the worst I've seen. Tons of wildlife out there to see.
