Skyway Bridge Trail

Misleading reviews

July, 2024 by dskmd3

One of the other reviews mentions “the views on top” of the bridge. The trail does NOT go up the Skyway Bridge, but stops well short of the beginning of the incline. Do not be misled by that statement.

Nathan Benderson Park Trail

Simple paved trail around the lake. Enjoyed watching the rowing practice and the wildlife (birds). Lots of people biking and walking but plenty of room!

Cape Haze Pioneer Trail

Skating by Manatees !

June, 2024 by brookeypav

Rollerskated this entire trail. The first mile was amazing asphalt quality. It’s gets a little rough, but never intolerable. Lots of amazing views and great nature. Saw iguanas & manatees by the fishing pier at the end. Just a few intersections but they aren’t too busy. A couple clean facilities along the trail with restrooms & water fountains. Very neat trail and would recommend!

Cape Haze Pioneer Trail

Nice Ride

June, 2024 by cjbkmb

We just finished about 14 miles (round trip) yesterday. We really enjoyed it even though we encountered a little rain. Trail is straight, smooth, and well kept. We also rode the Boca Grande, not a fan! If you want a nice ride, ride the Cape Haze.

Courtney Campbell Trail

Courtney CampBell trail

June, 2024 by tiffanyblack5

This was our first time and we came on Fathers Day Sunday and arrived around 12pm and parked at Ben T Walton beach I think it was called and it was perfect spot to unload our e-bikes and ride. Parking was $7 for 4 hrs but we were done in 2 but it was really nice and the breeze off the water kept us cool! We were gonna hit the beach after but we needed to get home but u def could have done both! Also we loved it because there was hardly anyone on it :)

Town-n-Country Greenway (Hillsborough County)

enjoyable

May, 2024 by jesuslorenzana

It might be short and might need more benches but one thing for sure is beautiful and if you walk along the Sweetwater Creek between you can see stingrays and manatees swimming. I recommend it.

Tampa Riverwalk

This section of trial was alive with people and activities on a Saturday evening. Walking was perfect, too crowded for anything else.

Ream Wilson Clearwater Trail

Good for running

April, 2024 by joenad55

Jogged the length of the trail recently in two separate runs. The bay portion very scenic, other parts tree covered and provide some shade. It goes through a couple of parks where there are benches and water fountains.

Duke Energy Trail

Nice trail

April, 2024 by joenad55

Well marked trail. Do have to cross over Drew St and 60, which can be a bit hazardous. Out in the open, no shade. Connects to the Ream Wilson Trail at the ballpark.

Clearwater Memorial Causeway Trail

review from a tourist

March, 2024 by luv_mlb25

So I ran this trail back in August 2023. The pictures submitted here on this site are very inviting, however, not valid. Yes, there is a spiral around the area of the trail, however, it is NOT part of the trail. That being said, I ran the spiral down to what I thought was part of the trail, only to get lost and realize that I had to run back up the spiral to get to the actual trail which then crosses the bridge. The sights, however, are amazing and I can't wait to run this trail again when I return in the fall. Once you get across the bridge and closer to the beach, there is more traffic, so keep your eyes and ears open. Great trail. Lots of sunshine and wide paths and beautiful flowers.

Oldsmar Trail

A WASTE!

March, 2024 by jsb3144

No signs, street crossings are not working! When they are working the cars don’t obey. One has to sometimes get off the bike to push the button to cross the street. Not for kids at all!

Ream Wilson Clearwater Trail

Nice trail

March, 2024 by jpjjt

I just rode this trail and it’s very nice. The one problem is the trail bridge is out so you have to run the sidewalk to cross the 4 line road. Once you cross the road and get back on the trail it’s nice and easy.
