Had a great bike ride on Morris Bridge Bike Trail today. The weather was great, though hot. The trail is through some stunning landscapes, varying from pint scrub to oak forest and cypress swamp. Most of the five miles of the main trail we did was dry and easy, though we hit some rough and muddy patches. Lots of evidence of feral pigs rooting near the trail, but we didn’t see any.

Beautiful trail by the water. Has options to other connecting trails.

Awesome trail. Wide, paved and offers plenty to do from eating, river watching (dolphins) and exercise.

Great running trail!

Close to home and a great place to come walk the dog or go for a stroll. They could renovate a few of the trails and the huts but other than that it's a great place to bring the family for a picnic or a walk.

Being a skater and a runner, this is one of my go to spots. The views are just spectacular and get ready for some beautiful sunsets if you come that late. The pavement is flat and new.

I love what the city has done with this trail. A scenic tour of Downtown Tampa with a very modern design. Great for a stroll or a jog. I come out here at least once every other week.

Great flat paved trail perfect for running, biking, skating, you name it. The views are nothing spectacular but then again it was made mostly for running and cycling.

Great for a morning or evening jog with beautiful views of Tampa Bay. I've run various distances along Bayshore and it's always a pleasant run.

Both loops and the spur are open now, with minimal water on the ground for all the rain we just had.

Only the preserve loop is open right now as of April 2018. So that is the loop on the right. It is marked on the map in the parking lot. Also the trail head is kind of hidden but it is also marked on the map. Did the whole loop today, it was about 2 miles starting from the parking lot and back. The trail is marked well. Didn’t run into any wildlife either. It was actually pretty peaceful. Nice little walk.

As other reviewers have noted, yes this is right next to the dump. Aside from the smells, there is trash littered throughout the unpaved trails, including a lot of broken glass and what appeared to be soiled tissues. This trail also is right near what I believe is a Tampa Police Department training area, I heard lots of sirens and rapid acceleration/deceleration. But there is an observation tower on the Southwest side of the peninsula.

extremely nice trail..

Very easy trail... started at Cypress Point Park.... to Clearwater and back... Total 22.21 miles. Good thing it was a cloudy day... no shade. Differently and early morning or an evening trail.

Another beautiful downtown path right on the water. Perfect for walking/ running/ biking/ roller blading

Beautiful walking/ running / bike path in downtown Tampa.

Perfect 7mi loop to run and bike on

Beautiful scenery and things to do along the way. Great for people of all ages and abilities, pet friendly. The trail could definitely use more trees for shade. It’s only April, but the sun was really hot by 11:00 am.

It’s next to a landfill worst park I have ever been too will not go back!

Just a long sidewalk but an amazing view

It’s a good little stroll combined with the other trails that are nearby in the same park. There was a bench overlooking the water. That was relaxing. Was able to sit down and read a little while. Very private. Bring bug spray!

Gorgeous run along Tampa’s Riverwalk. Beautiful views and beautiful people. There were also many military informational plaques and Memorial’s along the route that I thought were very impressive. If you do a run, enjoy it... but try and go back later for a leisurely stroll so you can see and read all of the history along the Riverwalk. I sacrificed some of my run just so I could stop numerous times and read the history.

Nice area but trails could be a little better marked. Saw an armadillo. Fun!

It was a good and well-taken-care-of trail, but it would be great for there to be a few toilets out on the trail in case of emergencies.

Very clean, nice boardwalk with lots of shade. Saw alligators, armadillos & a variety of birds.
