My Saturday run
Plenty of canopy cover

Not a terrible trail, there are points where you can get lost but it’s easy to get back on track. Your going to be walking through a lot of marsh and plains when on the trail but you soon enter a forest which is by far the best point on the trail. Terrain was not hard at all however I did get my feet wet from walking in unavoidable marsh water. Overall good trail but nothing that’s going to blow you away.

Nice trail, saw Fox, Snakes, a Rat, Crabs , luminous green lizards! View of river from viewing deck. Not possible to do track with a stroller

Trail was not marked well. Made some wrong turns. Using map on this app helped get back on track. Followed markers and it still sent us in wrong direction. Lot of open grass and sand trails in the sun. Not much in trees.

Small-ish parking, couple picnic tables under cover. Trail starts at north end of picnic area. West end is closed for trail repair (hurricane Erma??). Open grass to walk through tree canopy, to very open LARGE grass area, turned right about 1/2 mile in tree line with a creek crossing. Choose LEFT after you clear the trees, trail leads on to the woods. You have the option to go straight OR turn right for a half loop (did the loop). Either way you will end up in a marsh area which leads back to the woods.

Great trail although I got a little lost But would definitely visit again !!!

beautiful more natural trail with plenty of turns. the observation deck was worth a stop

Hiked this as part of the Hillsborough Hiking Spree. It is a great little trail with the only drawback being it is so short. So, I looped it twice and enjoyed the experience.

Really captures allot of the Florida landscapes in a short beautiful hike.

Double path pretty much the whole way. Almost no shade besides the last half mile stretch. Very sandy trails at some point. Feels like you’re walking at the beach. Not very much to look at. Only saw birds. Very boring trail in my opinion.

This is a beautiful trail. Fun, easy run.

Triple Creek Nature Preserve, 13305 Balm Boyette Rd, Riverview, FL. A little hard to find, no sign at entrance. Sign is at the back of parking area. NO paper maps, so take a photo at display. Walking through old growth timber to marsh to old growth timber to timber farm to scrub and on and on.... Did the trail as a figure "8", made a right after passing through the first tree canopy. LOT of sand in bottom half of "8". After you make the cross over the trail gets GREAT! This part isn't a service road trail. Has a down tree, BUT it's a easy duck under!

Surprise trail!!!! PRIMITIVE not a truck/service trail, you have to duck plants as you hike. Has a nice well built boardwalk for a good Alafia River view. I-75 noise was a bit much BUT the wind was from the south-west.

Second visit was just as good as the first. Plants have been trimmed back some. Does NOT change the views!!!!

I hiked this as part of the Hillsborough Hiking Spree and training for an upcoming section hike. It is a wide flat, clearly marked, out and back trail that features marshland, pine scrub and prairie. It is quiet and a nice getaway for those in the area. I would have rated it a little higher than 3 stars but not 4 stars yet.

I'm very new to hiking and I've been dying to try an unpaved trail. my dogs and I loved this trail. A few times I was worried we had taken a wrong turn as the trail got a little narrow and we had to cross a few ditches but there were markers every so often that put my mind at ease. There's a beautiful view of the river as you come toward the end of the hike and it's a great place to catch your breath. It did seem like longer than a mile to me but I guess that's because of the terrain. I look forward to working up to longer hikes on rough terrain.

Surprize trail!!!! Not opened up to allow truck on to maintain! You have to duck plants as you hike, PRIMATIVE >> AND that makes for a GREAT hike!! Has a nice well built dock for a good river view. I-75 noise was a bit much BUT the wind was from the south-west. This is 1 of 20 trails that are part of 2018 Hiking Spree in Hillsbough County FL

1 of 20 trail for 2018 Hiking Spree by Hillsbourgh County, FL. Trail is wide enough to drive pickup truck on without touching plants!!!! Once you get done with the short bit of old blacktop road it get more primitive. Basic A to B and back walk. Included the QR (in photos) for trail(s) map.

This is nice little walk. I wish we’d had a little more time, we would have done circuit twice. Saw no one else. Well marked two foot wide dirt trail. Get your boots dirty if it is low tide wandering the flats of the River.

Was. Nice short hike. Walked the dogs here, some parts on the trail were a little overgrown but we didn’t mind to much :)

This is a great application I always wanted something like this I run for my heath and always looking for new trails to run at thanks

It was a small community park. The trail wasn't marked clearly so we ended up getting lost and having to walk all around the neighborhood trying to find the park.
