Hillsborough River: Trout Creek to Lettuce Lake Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"This is a gentle, scenic trip through swamp and hammock, ending just before the river enters a built-up area on the outskirts of Tampa. From the launch, pass under three bridges (0.4 mile). On the left, 300 yards below the third bridge, is the entrance to a sheltered pool where you might find sheltering birds.
From here the route meanders in a roughly west–southwesterly direction through floodplain swamp and hydric hammock for 3.25 miles, gradually becoming more enclosed, until you near the finish when it opens up again. As you approach Lettuce Lake, you will see the end of a boardwalk on the left (west) bank."
