Florida has many beautiful and well maintained parks. This particular park has a beautiful 7seven mile bike trail. Water stations are well stocked. Clean, pretty, worth the trip.

Walk, ride, skate, run, birdwatch to your heart's content. Plenty of open space keeps you from tripping over each other.

Flatwoods is different for many people, although no motor powered vehicles allowed. Perhaps most would use the 7 mile paved loop, accessed via either a 0.6 miles, or a 2 miles section to the two parking areas. This is frequented by runners, cyclists, roller skaters,...More

It seemed like a lovely park. My husband and two dogs went for a walk there on Tuesday. The weather was nice. The park was clean. My only complaint is the "trail map" is completely useless. My husband took a photo of the posted trail...More

Excellent place for biking. Long, hilly runs and flat as well. Asphalted throughout. Some sections under water after heavy rains. Full of wildlife!

We have only used the bike trails at Flatwoods. I think there are several hiking trails in the area. Look up Hillsborough State park. I know they have lots of hiking trails. Not sure about the dogs.
