This 4.6 mile linear trail is accessible from SR/CR-54
on the north and from the Zephyrhills by-pass road, CR-535, on
the west. During the spring you can see many wildflowers in bloom
and during the fall, the swallow-tailed kites gather together
to begin their migration south. It is quite a spectacle to see
10 to 20 of these magnificent birds overhead at one time. The
trail features one campsite near the southwestern trailhead. The
campsite is equipped with a pitcher-pump well. The water must
be treated, filtered, or boiled before use. Camping is by permit
only. Contact SWFWMD at 1-800-423-1476 to obtain a permit.
The hiking trail passes through several different ecosystems in
Hillsborough Wildlife Management Area.
