I love it !!!

Just got back from this trail. Both loops are flooded, but nothing more than ankle deep. The mosquitoes are horrendous. My nine year old was almost carried away by them. We fully sprayed ourselves down before getting on the trail and they laughed at us.
Well maintained trail, $6.00 at the gate, easy parking if you go early. Nice walking by a river. Take a weight belt so the mosquitoes can’t carry you away!

Had a great hike with the kids there. Saw gators, turtles and a hawk. The rapids are beautiful, bathrooms & playground are nearby.

fun but don't go on this trail in the hot weather

fun but don't go on these trails when it's in the 90'

Really shows you what a wild Florida looks like. The rapids make for some great photography and as you make your way through the trail you really do feel one with nature, especially to be so close to home.

Great trail with awesome views of the river and "Florida rapids!" I also did the Baynard trail. Great park!

My favorite area to hike around Tampa so far. Very few people typically. Definitely avoid the trails to your right as you enter the area after rains. Can get VERY muddy back in there. The palmetto field at the north end is beautiful on a cooler morning.

I did this along with the Baynard and Seminole trails and it was very worth it! Great scenery and good wildlife. The rapids view is very unique to the state and was extremely relaxing to be around. I highly recommend this trail.

Excellent trail! It was well-maintained and very scenic the entire way. I loved walking along the river, which gave some of the best scenery on the entire trail. Saw a few gators and lots of turtles and birds. Definitely a 5-Star trailand I highly recommend this along with the river rapids trail.

I would go back. Make sure to take someone with you if your walking. (To remote).

This trail is great for bikers, hikers, rollerbladers, and runners who want miles of training on smooth paved road. There’s off the beaten paths too if you want to explore.

Great long runs. Mostly flat singletrack trails. Excellent way to get into mountain biking for all skill levels. Excellent way to build up your biking health and shape.

Trail bridges are closed on the paved portion and trees have fallen and blocked the path through the woods... very disappointing

was a nice walk until we found out the bridge was closed till further notice so turned around only got 2 miles in

Well maintained narrow trail- beautiful path right up next to the river. Lot's of sawgrass. Saw some wildlife.

We came here on a Saturday morning in February hoping to see some wildlife. The hike was nice but pretty boring after awhile. The path winds along the river giving you glimpses of the water and occasional kayakers. The scenery along the river was nice - dark water and jungle-like banks. We didn't see any wildlife but saw ample evidence of their presence - feral pigs had rooted through the whole area, churning up the sandy soil. We did hear that there is a 15 ft alligator named Moe in the area but we didn't see any signs unless the absence of wildlife attests to his predatory appetite!
We were not bothered by mosquitos. The road to the trailhead may make you think that you made a wrong turn!

Beautiful scenery as the hike runs right beside the river.

Awesome trails for walking or biking.

Almost 6 miles on the Barnard And Seminole portions of the Florida Trail. Great hiking and real nice Shots of the upper Hillsborough River. Tested the new hammock as well for my upcoming section hike on the AT. Trail is in good condition and very little mud.

Glad I had running shoes on for the longer, duller stretches through the woods. Beautiful stretch along the river and past the rapids. Take your shoes off and enjoy the river, just check for gators first.

nice river for a kayak trip....up to Hillsborough state park or down to lettuce lake park. Trail is nice also for a short hike

This was my first solo hiking trail. I did the Seminole trail (moderate). i was a bit nervous whether i would be able to find the trail and follow it. i was very pleased. the trail was clearly marked. there are lots of roots on this trail so make sure you pay attention to where you're walking. I came across a whole nest of large birds (not sure exactly what they were) and spotted a small gator down by the end of the river! the part of the trail along the river is a beautiful hike, the part inland is a bit boring. most of the trail is well shaded. I'd definitely go again!

Great place to ride. Deer, pigs, great place to see wildlife.

Kid friendly and stroller friendly.

Loved this trail! So nice and easy and nature filled with a beautiful river!

Awesome little trail with a beautiful landscape and wildlife!

trail has some down trees in multiple areas would not go after rain has a lot of lower areas that hold water and pretty muddy

Went recently. Seminole trail was a very enjoyable, moderate hike.
