I live fairly close to the trail so ride it often on weekends. It's a well paved biking trail but can get pretty crowded on nice weekend mornings. Though it runs alongside the Suncoast expressway, it's fairly shaded on the upper portion and seems quiet-...More

We walk here a lot, probably every other weekend for much of the year. Every single leg of the trail has something to offer, I would suggest you explore all of it over time.

I have biked here and enjoyed it plenty. I have had two different friends deal with thugs when the Town and Country trail was nearing dusk. So, I suggest traveling on the trail when it is busy. Drink plenty of water.

This is one of my favorite traits for a quick run or bike. Nice variation on terrain with small elevation changes, curves, shaded in areas, water and clean bathrooms. I use this Trail regularly for training. Weekend mornings can be busy with families and kids,...More

Upper Tampa Bay Trail offers a well maintained asphalt trail which takes you away from traffic and urban noise. Trail offers both shade and sunshine, and also provides a degree of undulation. The trail is always kept clean and is well marked.

The section from Van Dyke Road to the Suncoast Trail is wonderful. You can continue on the Suncoast if you want.a longer ride. Winter is always better unless you ride at 7 am in the summer.
