not much like "trail running" but it's a beautiful paved sidewalk along the water and makes a great run!

Great local hiking spot. We go often. With beach, dunes and forest trails, it offers a lot of variety for it's size.

Went on a 2.5 hour hike at Grayton Beach State Park. Jan is a great time to hike this trail system. Temps in the high 50's, cool breezes and no bugs. Our dogs enjoyed the forest and we only saw 4 other people on the trail.

Went in January when the mosquitos weren't that bad, nice breeze on a sunny day. There's a few short trails that makes the drive even more interesting, you'll see gators, birds, fish, turtles, and more.

A fun place to visit for a little while. We were down for vacation and planned to hike for a change from the beach life. Glad we did. Yes, there were spiders and lizards, but nothing unmanageable. It was great to see a different side of Florida. (Hiked: May/2015)

was a great easy run with nice views

Used the coast bikes app to rent a bike from downtown Tampa and road it along Bayshore! Definitely a nice view and it has inspired me to bike more. This was my first biking trail and it was comfortable the entire way!

Beautiful trail. Short walk but very scenic.

Gorgeous nature trails and scenic areas.

I have a 3 month old and am trying to take him hiking once a week. I grew up visiting Oleta Park but mostly for the kayaking, this my first time hiking the trails!

We really enjoyed waking in the park. There are a few trails that are possible to do with stroller near the beach.

The mountain biking/hiking trails cannot be done with a stroller. These hikes were fun but we did get lost a few times so just stay aware :)

There is no water on the trail so make sure to bring your own!

I've been on this trail a few times. Started in JD, backpacked to Kitching Creek, camped, and finished the next day at Riverbend Park. This is a great intro backpack trip, especially if you're backpacking for the first time and you're not sure if the sport is for you.

The second time was a three day / two night excursion through Corbett and Dupuis. The trail was underwater the entire first day. It's one of the more miserable hikes I've ever done.

very pretty and easy walk. lots of beautiful views over the water.

A quick easy hike.

We enjoyed 6 miles of trails today. Due to heavy rains over the last two weeks there was a good bit of water across several spots that made it a little challenging to navigate. The trails north of the tram path were a little too close to Hwy 98 for our liking, but the trails south of the paved path were peaceful. Not a lot of shade, so cooler weather is your friend here.

Love this trail. One of my favorites when visiting Florida.

Nice trail. Entered on North end of the park and took service road to make it closer to a 4 mile hike. Nice water views. Saw a beautiful gopher tortoise along the way. Worth a try.

Some small rolling hills but felt relatively flat (we’re from N.GA). A few options to add on loops. We stopped to see the fort at the halfway point which was a nice break.

The trail does run near the road back to the fort (and sometimes the trail IS the road back to the fort) and other reviews are right - it is a bike trail as well, and a pretty narrow one, at that. Bikers can only go one way, and as a hiker you can pick if you’d like to face them or not, but you still have to be mindful and sometimes it’s hard to find a place to jump out of the way.

Has many flooded ruts that can be bypassed if you don't mind taking the sawgrass around them. lots of mosquitoes so bring spray. It go get to the north end at low tide you can walk through the sand of the mangroves that connect to the intercoastal water.

Really enjoyable hiking trail! There is a small fee to park but it is worth it. You can also purchase a ticket to see the fort if you want to add on that portion. The trail varies in elevation quite quickly so be cautious. The mountain bikers approach at a fast speed so be aware and perhaps start on the other side of the loop as mountain bikers so you can see them coming. It can get quite hot and you might run into afternoon thunderstorms in the summer so be sure to go in the cooler months.

The stroll along the beach is wonderful on a breezy sunny day. There are incredible trees and shells to see. The part in from the beach can get quite warm, so perhaps shoot for a cool day. Overall a great trail.

Had a great time looking for gulls, terns and ducks. It was particularly fun seeing a couple Common Mergansers that have been hanging out here recently.

Impassable in one section due to water overflow (heavy rains lately), but we were able to cover almost 9 miles. Scenery is beautiful, trails are well maintained. Ran into only a couple people until we were back on the paved section. We came back among the ocean to make it a loop, as official beach access is available between Morris and Campbell lakes.

Haven’t hiked this trail yet, just recently visited Kauai, Hawaii and enjoyed every minute of it hiking the mountain trails and waterfall trails. Want to explore more of my home towns hiking trails and this seems like a challenge for me!!!

I was dropped off at the pay booth and took the hike today then walked all the way back down the causeway to the main road. My highlight was videoing an armadillo rooting around in the weeds. Bring bug spray. Even with the bug spray, when I stopped to take a photo, they caught up to me. But they are part of the ecosystem as well. It's their home that I was visiting!

Still been remodel trail is not well mark, trail head it’s before you enter the parking area, little confused at the beginning but it gets clear.it rain and you walk thru some water, but it’s a ok trail, no wildlife

New, well maintained. Too hot to hike in summer. Wide path, shady rest stops along the way or take a detour for a swim in the ocean. Gopher turtles are frequently spotted.

One of my all-time favorites! Hiking and Trail Running :) Beautiful Bone Yard Beach - A lot of jellyfish washed ashore recently with the full moon.

I did the Cedar Point Loop (blue) trail only, and was disappointed. I was expecting better views of the marsh and creek. Lots of dead leaf accumulation, downed branches. Even on a cool December day, it felt muggy in there.
