Tarpon Springs, Florida Map

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.

small little nature trail not even a mile but nice views over tarpon lake and a quick easy walk.

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.

This was a fine area, and we took our dog, but there were way too many bugs near the water. They looked like tiny bees and we're just everywhere. Does anyone know what they are called?

Biked on this trail a lot when I lived in the area. My friends and I would often start at Taylor Park in Largo and go up to the Dunedin causeway and back. One of the nicest bike/hiking trails I've seen.

This is my home trail. I have ridden as much as 60 miles on it one day. It's great for distance training and offers accesses to several local sites of interest like Ft Desoto also listed as a trail site. It is a fully paved trail so any bike can be used but you'll get the most out of with a road bike. Bring lots of water since it's a county trail there are no amenities and it gets up to 93 degrees here. Recent additions have been opened from the Skyway trail link giving access to two more beaches.

I enjoyed this trail. Is large and easy and the Dunedin area is very nice. there is a nice place where you can find natural smoothies and delicious muffins and tasted it while you take a rest. Is a little purple house beside the trail near to Dunedin downtown.
