Flatwoods is different for many people, although no motor powered vehicles allowed. Perhaps most would use the 7 mile paved loop, accessed via either a 0.6 miles, or a 2 miles section to the two parking areas. This is frequented by runners, cyclists, roller skaters,...More

Excellent place for biking. Long, hilly runs and flat as well. Asphalted throughout. Some sections under water after heavy rains. Full of wildlife!

There's not too much to write up. It's a great place to bike or hike. The courtesy stations are clean and well-kept, and at a two-dollar fee (on the honor system) it's a great value.

This is a must for bikers. Lots on road for road biking and endless trails for mountain biking. Must much shade for road biking but still fulfills your need. Lots of wildlife and nature to enjoy.

I love going out here for bike rides. The paved part of the park is great for serious bikers and also for casual weekends riders like me. This past weekend we saw several deer, a bobcat, a couple alligators and lots of pretty birds. The...More

Never realized the park was as large as it is. I decided to bike ride from the entrance on Fletcher Avenue. The "Main" trail paralleled I-75 and is not paved, but is very smooth. I crossed over the dam, and headed to the primary loop....More

How many hiking trails do they have here? Are they well maintained trails? Are dogs allowed on them? Thanks

We have only used the bike trails at Flatwoods. I think there are several hiking trails in the area. Look up Hillsborough State park. I know they have lots of hiking trails. Not sure about the dogs.
