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

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.

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.

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.

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

We came here for a short hike and wanted to see some wildlife. We were here on a Saturday afternoon in February and it was busy but didn't feel too crowded. It was a nice walk around the lake on a boardwalk and allowed for an interesting point of view. We did see an alligator, lots of birds, turtles, and some fish. We also heard two Barred owls calling to one another.
A nice introduction to Florida's wilder side.

Beautiful scenic trail. Lots of people jogging and walking dogs and enjoying life. I will do this again constantly!

This is a great ride. Watch the wind.

Fantastic!

Fun, great place to take pictures.

Very nice run this morning. Easy trail but you should pay close attention to the many trail markers.

we entered through the wilsky access point and traveled north on the trail. it was a nice walk. not lot of opportunity for unpaved hiking and what was available was a little questionable as when you get off the paved trail, there is some trash and liquor bottles. not really sure what you'd find if you went much further into the woods. on the trail was ok. wherever we go, we hope for very little traffic as we have a very nervous dog that is not able to enjoy the day with too much going on around him. Here, there was a LOT of bike riders that don't think twice about passing by as close as they can get even though they see us walk as far as we can off the trail to allow a wide berth. it was somewhat stressful at times for our pup. We are still on the lookout for a more secluded off road nature hiking experience.

It was amazing
