The Hardy Trail is a mile long walk or ride in the heart of Dade City. The trail sits on a converted railbed, and travels south from Church Avenue. Residents love using the trail to run or jog or walk their dogs. It is an easy walk - flat, paved and shaded and equipped with water fountains and dog waste bag dispensers. There are plans to extend the trail north from Church Avenue to Lock Street.
Park on Church Avenue. Be sure to follow posted parking regulations.
My sister in law and I decided to go for a walk on this trail. Not knowing where to expect we were very pleasant surprised. The pathway is pretty shaded and certainly wide enough to do social distancing. There is an abundance of beautiful flora and even some fauna- an armadillo walked out in front of us, spotted a beautiful red cardinal, a large red tail hawk and quite an abundance of butterflies. Some people walking, some biking but definitely not overly populated. One feels as if they’re “out in the country” while being right in town. Would highly recommend this if you’re looking for a shorter walk
