nice clean flat dirt road. scenic and quiet. also a paddle trail on the creek with good signs showing rout.

Easy trail, the APP was helpful. Beautiful trees and interesting history on canoes.

We all enjoyed it! Very tranquil walk

gate was locked so we couldn't drive to the trail head

my favorite trail in central florida...lots of miles, nice straight runs, lots of twists, plenty of wildlife, well marked, great facilities with bike station, restrooms, shower, benches, water.... i love it

ride this trail twice a week...well maintained, nice twists and change of speeds.....wish it had some longer runs or some more mileage.

very clearly marked and clean.

Went for a run here on a cloudy December day while staying at nearby Hog Pen Landing. It was nice run, although covered in water in some places and we didn’t do the last .2 miles to Ocean Pond because the trail was all water. Didn’t see any wildlife but heard some birds. Nice for a short run.

Beautiful park, trails marked very well. The only downside was the amount of ticks. I go on many trails with my pups and make sure to check them before getting back in the car, they have never had more than three ticks collectively and today after a 4 mile walk I found 8 ticks on them, and we stayed on the trail. Aside from that it was very pretty, and volunteer at the front was friendly and helpful.
Update: I lowered to three stars, I have found several more ticks, be careful on these trails and check yourself thoroughly after.

This was an incredibly good surprise. Well marked trail and not challenging (although probably more difficult in summer). In three hours, I saw three Florida Black Bears (there’s only about 4,000 of them left) and 6 gators. The bears were extremely close, bringing into play your bear awareness training for sure. Beautiful wetland and forest scenery - and more wildlife than you will imagine. Don’t let anyone tell you Florida hiking is not worth it...

Many of us run this trail very often, it's really varied with some hills, views of lakes and wildlife.

Awesome hike! Our dog loved it. Would be great to mountain bike.

Easy, lots of twists and turn, not as flowey, but none the less fun. They are adding new additions all the time

Fantastic for a short, quiet walk. There is a tower here that goes up a few stories so you can look down at the mangrove forest below. Ends at a gorgeous waterway off of the Caloosahatchee River. Great little gem in the Cape.

due to weather the boardwalk has been tornapart and you can only walk a quarter mile out.you will see part of the boardwalk in the lake and the observation tower you cannot reach.

We originally were going to rent bikes and ride the trail, however ended up taking a 2 hour tram tour. We are so glad we did. The guides were knowledgeable and shared so much information about what we were seeing. We saw so many types of birds and many gators!!

Wet in a few areas. Ran out of phone battery unfortunately, so didn’t record full trail. But beautiful—like walking on the moon—completely alone on the beach and trails. There’s an incredible beach access near topsail hill.

a nice 3 mile trail in Lithia. several side trails lead to some nice places by the river. saw a lot of animal tracks, wild flowers, and beauty berries. the county rates it as strenuous but it is easy.

Loved the walk. The beach is beautiful. My only complaint is that it could have been longer.

very nice got to see a few snakes. definitely single track my dog didnt want to walk next to me but had a blast as well.

I hiked this trail yesterday, Nov 28th.

It may be rated as easy, but it definitely is not at this time! Most the "trail" is in ankle to knee deep water. It is hard to find where to go in many parts.

Once you reach the beach it is amazing! Shells everywhere and mostly untouched beach as it is so secluded. Definitely worth the trip if you are adventurous!

Pretty well marked. a lot of sandy areas make walking a little tough. true florida trail with a little bit of everything9

Dec. 2018. I stumbled on this place just after 5 pm and spent about 45 min watching TENS of THOUSANDS of white ibis flying in to roost from all over the swamps. Most amazing thing I've ever seen. The observation tower overlooks the rookery and was a short hike from the parking lot. If you're camping at Collier-Seminole be sure to hop over here!

Great walk through lush cypress and palm jungle. Lots of birds. Saw egrets, herons, a bald eagle and several large woodpeckers, plus a red-shouldered hawk close to the boardwalk.

The walk was nice despite a little red tide that made me cough occasionally. The trail ends in an area of mangroves that we walked through to an inlet waterway. The area toward the end of the hike is a wildlife preserve.

great hike for Hillsborough county. It's not fancy or awe inspiring, but a great Preserve for local Flora and fauna. if you take both red and yellow trails, it's 6.4 miles.

We could not locate a hiking trail. This may just be a kayaking location and if so, looks lovely for that.

Always a great hike

Nice, easy, boardwalk trail through a thick forest. Listen to all the sounds. This place is alive!

Lovely trail. If it has rained recently, wear your boots!
