Trail appears mostly pavement or sand. Hard to find. Lines don't match well.

Loved it! Lots of wild life! Plus theres many trails to get into

If you drive to the side across the water that part of clam bayou has a nice hill and is more open

Fun little 4 mile walk.

Nice park in the middle of the city. Easy walk and a good place to see some wildlife (gators,turtles and birds)

Good mix of boardwalks and sand trails. Lot of doubleback trails that lead to "lookout" points. Low bug factor, not crowded. Good for early morning hikes in warmer weather.

Nice place to walk, and there is a lot of nature,there are no trails for hiking and trail running

Took the kids and grandparents on a nature trip with Dave as our guide. Dave was amazing and so knowledgeable about all the fauna and wildlife. I can’t wait to return in the winter and actually hike the trails!

Holy hot! Wear sunscreen and a hat, bring bug spray and lots of water, and you'll have a great hike! Can get muddy in some areas. Look out tower is on the first boardwalk if you park at the history building. The area deemed "look out point" on the map is a pretty walk but not much of a look out.

Fun trail for learning about Florida coast wildlife.

Easy trail. “Hard” rating is way off the mark.

Light hike, but very scenic. We’ll kayak it next time.

I ran a 5 mile section in the downtown St Petersburg/coffee pot bayou area. Nice concrete path. The area can get a little crowded. Serious runners will want to go in the earlier hours.

Nice boardwalks and plenty of wildlife. Fairly busy place the day we went even if it was a week day.
Only negative is the high noise level coming from I275

Nice boardwalk. Short but well maintained trails. Also an observation tower is located on South side of the park. Can rent kayaks across the street from the main parking.

Fantastic board walk thru the mangroves. The whole Weedon Island facility is first rate.

Great outdoor walk in Pinellas which is hard to find.

The kayak trail through the mangroves that really makes this place unique. Depending your pace and tides, and if you want to spend time in the deeper bay waters, one of the many fishing holes, or stop at the sandbar for a swim, the trail ranges between 2/6 hours to paddle.

It's excellent for critter spotting. A wide variety of birds, dolphins, rays, fish, and crabs inhabit the groves and on land you'll be sure to see a raccoon sneaking about, maybe even an armadillo.

It's a St Pete gem that offers enough of a scenic relief, you can forget the city is just over your shoulder.
