The Oldsmar Trail extends over 10 miles, and links to 10 major parks in Oldsmar, Florida. R.E. Olds Park lies at the center of the system, which is roughly shaped like an upside down T. One south-north branch extends to Cypress Forest Park. The other branch stretches west to east from the Oldsmar Sports Complex to Mobbly Bayou Beach Park. The trail is mostly concrete but there are unpaved sections, particularly in the section going through the Mobbly Bayou Wilderness Preserve and heading into to Mobbly Beach.
The different parks and segments of the trail offer different things to trail users: some parks are places for fitness and sports, others for nature exploration and wildlife watching. Whichever direction one turns, there's something on the Oldsmar Trail for everyone.
Parking can be found at the parks and trailheads including:
This trail is pretty. However, we road until we encountered crossing a 5 lane road needing crossed at a light. The intersection was very busy. We didn’t feel it was safe to cross. We couldn’t get a “walk” signal to work for us and turned around.
We rode this on our Ebikes Jan 7&8,2023
Day#1 Parked at Oldsmar Sports Complex and easily picked up the trail. First part along water and then through and by parks. Lots of shade. Really a great trail. A few boardwalks over swampy areas. We took the leg of the trail down to Mobbly Bayou wilderness. You do wind through two neighborhoods as part of the trail but very enjoyable and no traffic. The Mobbly part is about 1.5 miles of super hard packed sand and nature. Along the way there is a zipline that was busy both days. Total miles 14.5
Day#2 Again parked at Oldsmar Sports Complex. This time at R.E Olds Park on the map we turned north to the Cypress Lakes Preserve. First part is on sidewalk along streets with 2 signal crossings. Some won't like this but did not bother us. Worth it to ride through the Preserve. Saw an alligator in the pond. (From AZ so we are still excited to see these guys). Then when the trail ended instead of turning around and retracing our path we rode down the sidewalk on Race Track Road to pick up the trail again and repeat the Mobbly Park section and then back to the Sports Complex. Race Track Rd took us right past the Oldsmar Flea Mkt which is open S&S.. Total miles 19.5
Trail is long enough with a mix of paved and gravel trail. Next to the ocean, not busy, Recommended.
Pretty nice trail. Except for one strip, it’s probably more suited for walking than riding as it has some sharp curves
Very nice ride around Oldsmar. Take some time to learn history of area and connection to Oldsmobile. Lunch stop at Jack Willies was icing on the cake.
The Oldsmar trail is a beautiful trail that takes you through many parks and provides many waterfront views. The trail is well manicured and gives the rider/hiker a variety of beautiful landscapes.
Had a really nice ride. Jack Willie’s Bar & Grill is an awesome place to eat!
