Great trail for biking or walking

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

We found this great bike trail in the middle of nature. There are two main entrances. On off of Morris Bridge Rd and one off of Bruce B Downs. There is a $2 parking fee, which helps maintain the restrooms and water stations. It is well worth it to have facilities to use. The main loop is 7 miles long.... More

There's not too much to write up. It's a great place to bike or hike. The courtesy stations are clean and well-kept, and at a two-dollar fee (on the honor system) it's a great value.

This is a biking and walking park. Nice hiking trails through the woods where you are likely to see deer and pigs. The paved trail runs from both entrances and provides great distance and lap oriented biking throughout the park. There are offroad trails as well. Walkers need to be aware and stay to the sides or at least move... More

This is a must for bikers. Lots on road for road biking and endless trails for mountain biking. Must much shade for road biking but still fulfills your need. Lots of wildlife and nature to enjoy.

I love going out here for bike rides. The paved part of the park is great for serious bikers and also for casual weekends riders like me. This past weekend we saw several deer, a bobcat, a couple alligators and lots of pretty birds. The paved loop is great since the park system provides water stations if you need it.... More

Never realized the park was as large as it is. I decided to bike ride from the entrance on Fletcher Avenue. The "Main" trail paralleled I-75 and is not paved, but is very smooth. I crossed over the dam, and headed to the primary loop. After driving the loop, I reviewed the map a little closer and found a few... More

A really nice park to go for a walk or a bike ride. Many trails and paved areas to explore. I have spent many hours with friends and family exploring the park.

With a seven mile paved loop and no cars to worry about this is a great place to roller blade, cycle, jog or walk in Hillsborough county. There are also four water stations strategically placed to make sure you stay hydrated in the Florida sun! The park has two main entrances one located off Bruce B. Downs to the West... More
