WildernessTrail Crew.jpg


With over 30 miles of singletrack adjacent to the Hillsborough River, these trails are best for beginners to the sport, and cross country riders. Please be aware and respectful that this is a multi-use trail that allows hiking and trail running. Dogs are welcome on the trails, however per Hillsborough County ordinance dogs must be leashed at all times.


Be kind and respectful to other users. As you ride through Trout Creek, Wilderness Park, and Flatwoods Park, you will encounter varying ecosystems, serene lakes, river access, wildlife, and a full day of adventure. Please be aware that this land is environmentally sensitive as it is apart of the Hillsborough River watershed.
