The bike ride is worth the look for it. It is not well marked to find at trail head. The path is newly paved, wraps around and under and over roads, gets hilly with little shade. I did glimpes a bear in field were pheasants flew up. Its best to ride in fall and winter.

Nice tree covered in most areas, winding curvy paths. would like to have more painted on the path markers. it's worth the stop and ride!

Great trail for Bikes, hiking it is a bit challenging due to length. Its paved so it gets hot. A lot of gators, thats a main attraction. Also great for bird watching. A lot of tourists. If you have an everglades yearly pass you can use it. Bike rentals, guided tours and office with vending machines.

It is very popular.

trail running

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.

Beautiful views along Tampa Bay and from peak of bridge. Lots of nature to observe or go for a dip. Wide trail, flat except bridges. Opportunity on east end to visit Skyway Park and trail annex or Cypress Point Park and Tampa U Path. On the West end you can take option of Reams Wilson Trail or double back.stop to observe water fowl, spot manatees, walk in the sand and surf, picnic or bbq along the way. You can het ski and more
Parking at Ben T Davis park. Dining options of Whiskey Joe’s on trail near Ben Davis or cross left at Ricky Point light to Bahama Breeze or turn right at Rocky Point and follow to end for finer dining at the Rusty Pelican.

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!

The trail itself is a meandering one that’s poorly marked and often overlaps with the disc golf course. There’s a dock that extends out and overlooks a small lake with scenic views and there are plenty of shaded trees to string up a hammock and relax.

It’s not strenuous or even remotely difficult and has facilities so that’s a plus. The downside is the trash in the water and on the trail. If you can ignore the constant sound of airplanes overhead, you’ll enjoy this light outing.

Easy for all levels. Clean bathroom facilities in the parking area. Signage is easy to follow. We had a very enjoyable 2.5 hr walk, saw lots of wildlife ( gators & birds) & very few people during our afternoon hike.

Well kept, clean, beautiful.

Beautiful scenic trail.

Gorgeous nature trails and scenic areas.

The sign is gone at end of trail telling you when to cut in to beach,it's marked with two sticks with red and green cloth. To make it to beach you actually have to cross a little marsh. Camped at beach in 50 degree weather with a nice breeze, so no mosquitoes. Lots of shells on beach. Definitely doing it again. (Trail map at park doesn't reflect map shown on this app)

Biked the trail from Gulf Breeze cottages and back. Great trip!

This was a really nice trail for road biking. Pavement was smooth and even and there were lots and lots of alligators along the way. We quit counting at 50. Tons of wildlife to see including various birds, turtles, etc. etc. Halfway down the trail is the observation tower. It is really nice to look out over the area. However, be aware, you must leave your bike at the entrance to the tower. Do not leave anything with zippers. The crows have learned how to open the zippers and they will take whatever is inside your zippered pouch. When I got back to my bike they had opened my zippered pouch and were pulling out my bike tool kit. I stopped them just before they flew away with it. They are very, very smart. The second half of the ride back is a little boring, not as much wildlife but a nice smooth ride nonetheless. You will enjoy this ride. I would not recommend it in the summer, but the temperature was perfect for a January ride. Also, it was pretty crowded at 10:30 a.m. on a Saturday and we had to wait at the entrance for about 15 to 20 minutes to be let in to get a parking space.

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.

This is definitely a place for mountain bikers of all skill levels to visit. The trail is great.

This is an awesome trail that I would recommend for anyone. The best time to go is in the the morning as you will see more wildlife and it’s not as hot. The one downfall is that there isn’t much shade so I would recommend bringing a hat and sunscreen.

It's an okay trail if you are jogging, walking or rollerblading...there are to many streets to cross for biking. We did a 10 miles out and back and we had to stop every quarter mile to cross a street. Not much to look at on the trail besides the backs of businesses and a few parks. I would only ride my bike on this for miles...definitely not for speed.

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.

Lots of alligators esp in the winter. The return side is kind of boring.

Began this hike around 4pm (in January) which was perfect for some cool scenery of the sunset. This area would be perfect for riding trail bikes. There is a wide range of wildlife to view.

great trail

Rented bikes in Winter Garden, rode to the Oakland Nature Preserve and back. Definitely worth the time and money. Cant wait to explore in the other direction next time :-)

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.

It was a great walk to be done the first day of the Year.

A lot of little trails that go around the area. Not very scenic. Lots of trees. But really peaceful and has a few little creeks running through it which are nice

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.

We saw an otter and when we saw turtles we kissed. I got lots of kisses that day.
