Balm Boyette Scrub Preserve

Trail Workdays

The monthly Boyette workday is typically the second Saturday of each month:



Boyette is situated on ~5,700 acres of upland scrub preserve owned by Hillsborough County, and has over 23 miles of premium singletrack and 15 miles of multipurpose double track.  From beginner to advanced riders, Boyette has something for everyone.

For safety, foot traffic is not allowed on the singletrack biking trails.  Please stick to the double track for hiking and trail running.  Per Hillsborough County ordinance, dogs must leashed at all times.  For the safety of riders and your dog, please do not recreate on the singletrack with your dog.
