Violet Cury Preserve Loop Professional Guide

Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook

"Enjoy an “urban wilderness” hike in what was once a country retreat of the Cury family. The 160-acre tract, centered by Lake Flynn, lies in the community of Lutz. A series of foot trails and double-track paths explore a surprisingly lush and appealing forest now encircled by residential development.

Tampa residents can make a quick getaway into an eye-appealing environment by visiting Violet Cury Preserve. Those living nearby use it frequently, but most living outside its proximity don’t know about it at all. Your hike will harken back to the days when the Curys used this as an escape from the hustle and bustle of Tampa. Can you
imagine what they would think now? It’s ironic that their former rural retreat still functions as an oasis where people escape the daily rush. Nature’s beasts take advantage as well."
