From the novice to the expert trails, many different types of biking opportunities can be found on District lands.


Wilderness Park Off Road Trails System at Lower Hillsborough Wilderness Preserve

Paved Trails

The bike trails on District lands are primarily double-track, multiuse trails located on old dirt roads that wind through pine flatwoods and around beautiful wetlands. For the more adventurous rider, off-road, single-track trails are available on cooperatively managed lands where user groups construct and maintain the trails. Some tracts have paved multiuse trails that allow both on-road and off-road bicyclists to enjoy riding in natural settings.

The 6.7-mile Starkey Trail winds through the 18,000-acre Starkey Wilderness Preserve and connects to the 42-mile Suncoast Trail. These trails offer some of the best long-distance bicycling opportunities in west-central Florida.
