Boy Scout Loop at Weedon Island Professional Review and Guide
"Natural surface trails lead through a lesser-visited section of Pinellas County’s premier bayside preserve, Weedon Island. The hike curves around mangrove-encircled Boy Scout Lake, then traverses upland freshwater forest communities before extending eastward to reach the shores of Old Tampa Bay, where Lookout Point awaits. Your return trip travels the south side of Boy Scout Lake. Be apprised: A power plant north of the trail can lend noise to the experience.This trailhead is reached before you come to the cultural and natural history center at Weedon Island Preserve. The entire Weedon Island experience, including a trip to the cultural and natural history center, is a major Pinellas County outdoors event. The hike follows a dirt, sand, and crushed shell track through numerous environments. At first you will be on a sun-splashed, fire-dependent palmetto plain bordered by scrubby flatwoods."
