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.

Great walking place when the weather is sunny. My dog loves it, but dogs have to stay on the lead. Great for a day out, lots of seats along the way, so take your picnic!

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.
