  • Morris Bridge Park was our kayak excursion pick up spot. It is a quiet and peaceful spot. We didn't get much of a chance to hike around but it is a pretty park!  more »
  • We kicked off our New Year's Day here with a picnic in the pavilion; shielded from the sprinkling rain. The Bald Cypress Trail was an enjoyable, easy walk that was pup friendly. Lots of trails to expl...  more »
  • This is a nice little park, surrounded by wilderness area with nature trails, bike paths, parking. Three wilderness areas in all lining this street. All close to one another and easly accessible.  more »

  • Wow, there's something special about this park! Looking for a shady path to walk when it's hot out? This park is a good choice. Like to walk off the pavement on dirt and mulched paths? This park is a good choice. Enjoy walking right along the Hillsborough River bed, stepping over Cypress knees in the path? This is a good choice. Love walking trails through the upland woods? Yup, this park has that, too. Like to walk a boardwalk along the river, want to launch your small boat, canoe, or kayak, and appreciate a clean bathroom? Choose this park. But please, remember to pay the park fee, and treat this place like it's a treasure... because it is!
  • Morris Bridge park is a great place for a quick escape. A beautifully maintained boardwalk with great views of the Hillsborough River and a canoe/kayak launch as well as picnic tables and a bathroom. You can regularly see alligators sunning themselves along the banks.
  • Nice serene park. Nice Boardwalks. Runs on both sides of the main road. Lots of nature and wildlife. Great for fishing, canoeing and just quiet reflection. $2 parking fee. Restrooms and picnic areas.
  • A great place to go trail running, mountain biking or light hiking. The best mountain biking close to USF campus. This park is part of the eleven mile flatwoods off road loop, and has a few small offshoot trails. Trails are beginner-friendly, with not many technical features, though there are many roots and rocks. Parts of the trail will flood after heavy rainfall.
  • One of my favorite parks. You can hike both sides of the park. One side has the boardwalk and pretty views of the forest. You'll see lots of birds. The other side has the bridge, boardwalk and overlook trails. Be careful, I have seen black bears and rattle snake on those trails. On the other end of the park as you first pull into the property there are trails off to the Left. You can hike really far in the dry season.
