Great trail. I enjoyed it greatly.

I’m sure I would have rated it a 5, but the issue was in Dunedin. We were heading north and There is a bridge that is close off; so have to take a sharp turn onto the sidewalk and cut over grass as well. Well my fiancé took the turn too hard and took a bad spill. Broken wrist, sore ribs and some road rash. Basically the area needs to be marked better with the turn onto the sidewalk. Beware if you are headed that way.

Thanks to all those that stopped and assisted, especially the nurse from St Pete and the woman that transported us back.

Great trail with easy access throughout. Wonderful for hiking, walking, or biking. It is wide, paved and well marked. A real gem in the Clearwater Dunedin area.

Took this trail to work for several years working in downtown Dunedin. Great for commuting, scenic at times, and awesome for biking to many different breweries. Plenty of places right on the trail to stop and eat or drink. Runs from Tarpon down to St Pete!!

Great trail. We rode from Dunedin to Clearwater to grab some Italian. Nice easy ride.

The reviews looked good. people mentioned it's a great place to take dogs so we thought we'd check it out. Turns out, dogs are not allowed on the trails, although I can't imagine why. Well, I'm a rebel at heart so we took a chance. We did the Flatwoods trail and it turned out to be about 1.6 miles. The trails are marked well and if you download the map from the Brooker Creek website, it's very easy to follow the markers on the trail you want to take. I'd like to go back and do the full four miles when it's not so late in the day. It's a pretty good hiking experience overall. The trails are wide and for the most part, you travel under the trees with light shining through but there were a lot more areas in direct sunlight than I had anticipated. if we go back, I will definitely put on sunscreen. it's worth mentioning that as we were coming back out to the parking lot, someone was heading toward the trails with a dog as well so based on that along with the previous reviews, I'm guessing the no dogs rule is overlooked for those who clean up after their pets? One can only speculate but I do wonder if there is a fine if caught.

Gorgeous trail - quiet and well marked. One of my favs.

Huge disappointment! Deeply saddened we didn’t find a perfectly preserved washed, rinsed, and dried prehistoric shark’s tooth right on the trail! Seriously though, AllTrails has the map of this badly botched. It’s a fine park, nice hike, dog liked it a lot. Saw NOT ONE bug.

Great biking trail.

About 50 percent are under water in Feb ( dry month ) and one trail is in total disrepair. Zero trail maintenance since opening. If you're looking for 1.5 mile hike, maybe you can accomplish. To bad this place has not been maintained

My favorite trail and this area! There's plenty of offshoots from the main trail to explore. Lots of people walk their dogs here - my dog loves it too!

I’ve hiked this trail maybe 30 times. It’s close to home and is very easy and short with minimal people. Lots of water views but I have to say that 80% of the time you get swarmed with the WORST bugs I’ve ever encountered hiking in Florida.

Typical Florida scrub trail. Not too much was happening when I went through. Try early morning to see any birds or etc. The trail is very wide and can be watery during rainy seasons.

Beautiful trail!

I will definitely come back but next time having covered myself in insect repellant. There are a great many sections teaming with deer flies so be prepared. It is a pleasurable hike with benches scattered throughout. Several spots are open to the waterways. It looks to be a great place to fish and bird watch.

This is a great trail for a beginner, very easy to navigate; it's clean, pretty, very enjoable.

A beautiful hike!!!

I practice load adjusting my pack, and start training my legs and ankles for trailing here. Be forewarned the back part of the loop may have pockets of knee deep water during the rainy season, and soft mud in places. All said though this a great trail walking experience. Loved every minute of it and there are some of the best, most animal knowledgeable guides I have seen.

Lots of wide trails.

Great trail

The area I was in was nice but I wish the trails for hikers was longer. The long trail is a horses trail and not for hikers. If you are doing anything besides horseback riding then you will get a ticket and from what I understand it's an $80 ticket for anything besides horseback riding on that trail

The Wilderness trail was closed. We tried it but it was impassible due to high water. The Black Water Cutoff trail was listed as open but it too was too muddy and wet to use. There were warning signs that said trails may have standing water in rainy season May to October. I guess we were still in the rainy season although the weather was fine. Maybe further in the winter eould work better

Really excellent trail for all purposes linking Tarpon Springs to the north to downtown St Pete to the south. I have ridden all sections and the stretch from Clearwater north to Tarpon Springs is definitely the more scenic and has much more of a tree canopy when the sun is hot. Dunedin is particularly nice. The stretch from Largo to St Pete is great for covering the distance but more functional rather than touristy. Also the trail goes through some areas best not to be in when darkness falls. Overall really great paved trail only encountering traffic at crosswalks.

It's not much of a hike. It's more just a path around the picnic areas.

Great trails to run.
