I have been going to Starkey Park for over 25 years. Just love the bike path and you get a variety of flats and inclines. You get to see Deer, Turkeys, Turtles, Coyotes, Armadillo and so many birds. T... read more »
Great wilderness preserve. Abundant in wildlife! We spotted Great Horned Owls, I uploaded the image to the map. Also, a few Barred Owl and Common Night Hawks, Sherman's Fox Squirrel, American Alligator, Water Moccasin, Dusky Pygmy Rattlesnake, a Bobcat, baby Armadillo, White-Tailed Deer, a bunch of Turtoise, & Rabbits. Also heard a gang of Coyotes howling at dusk. Can't go wrong with biking, hiking, and enjoying what nature has to offer. Love this park.
Very nice park just north of Hillsborough county in Pasco county. It accessible by paved bike trail from the East (via Suncoast trail) that leads directly to the main area of the park. The park has paved trails and wooded hiking and now mountain bike trails as well. There are restroom facilities and drinkable water fountains (not cooled). There are also primitive camping sites within the park boundaries as well. This is a nice park not too far from the heart of Tampa. A nice place to spend a day at.
Bicyclist's paradise, with a long paved trail completely away from other development. Ride and see no motor vehicles or buildings (except a park building) but there is drinking water and nature of all kinds, and even a primitive camping area that's right off the bike trail. The long-distance riders can hit the Suncoast, and ride many miles in either direction with few traffic crossings.
Nice park, Located in western pasco county Fl. 6.7 miles of Paved path for bike, walk, run roller blade etc that connects to upper Tampa bay trail and Suncoast trail. Campgrounds,, 27 miles of marked hiking trails, mountain bike trails. Great place to get outside and great for a fitness. Play ground, fire pits, day use pavilions, to have a picnic and spend the day.
Nice, open trails. Great for hiking with children or just trying to have a leisurely day in nature. The backwoods campsites are great. Picnic tables, firepits and grills at each one.
