Nature Trails at Upper Tampa Bay Park Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Arguably one of the most scenic recreational areas in the greater Tampa Bay area, Upper Tampa Bay Park is the venue for this nature trail triple-header, where you can enjoy some maritime magic that features multiple environments wrapped up in one destination. In fact, this park site was once slated to
be a housing project, but Hillsborough County stepped in, so now everyone can enjoy this 596-acre peninsular park bordered by Old Tampa Bay and Double Branch Bay.
Three superior nature paths, the Bobcat Trail, the Otter Trail, and the Eagle Trail, explore the preserve and provide an opportunity to see the wide variety of habitats firsthand. Enhance your Upper Tampa Bay Park adventure by bringing your canoe or kayak to paddle Double Branch Bay or bringing a meal to enjoy at the shaded picnic area. Be prepared to hike in the sun, even though plenty of trail passes through shady woodlands."
