Lake Rogers Walking Fools

Don't feel ready for the longer hikes we do?

Want to build up your endurance?

Curious to know what a comfortable pace is for you?

Come out and stretch your legs in this beautiful local park!

We'll walk some paced laps around the main loop around the lake. This is a natural, unpaved trail.

You can join in for as many or as few laps as you like.

We'll be out there from 8:15 to 10ish.

$2 entrance fee or Hillsborough County Park Pass for this beautiful, *mostly* shady park. About 2/3-3/4 of the trail is shaded - not quite as shady as Lettuce Lake - but it is a lot closer for some!

You can do it!

Everyone is welcome.

End your week out right ~ be a Walking Fool!

    This is a GREAT park to add to the "walking fools" repertoire. The loop is about twice the size as Lettuce Lake Park, and circumvents the lake with a few interesting twists and rises.

      Yes Fran...as far as I know this is the only entrance.

    Can't make this one, I'm still up in Virginia as a snowbird. Hope you'll offer this one again November or later.

    Karen,
    the walking fools sound like great hikes but I can't make them during the week. Is there a walking fools that meets on the weekends?

    1 · August 27, 2013

    • Karen H.

      Not yet Bonnie. But I don't see why we couldn't get one started. Even if it is something informal where one of the hosts gets it started and then the members keep it going. I don't think an event host is absolutely required.. but I am not completely sure

      August 27, 2013

  • Sandy B.

    Sounds great! A lot easier to get to for me!

    Great park and right by my house... I'd love to join you ladies but mornings are not easy on the work schedule. Anyone up for late afternoon walks around this lake?

    1 · August 26, 2013

    • Karen H.

      Yes Kathy, as soon as it gets a little cooler we can make afternoon hikes a regular thing. Lake Park on Dale Mabry, Upper Tampa Bay Park, and Brooker Creek Headwaters are other local options too. :)

    This is a great little hike, I did it quite often back about 8 years ago.

    1 · August 26, 2013

  • Fran G.

    I like it and can usually make it except when I am traveling.

  • Karen H.

    I scheduled this as a "walking fool' event because I'd like to make it a weekly thing. I'll decide by the attending list whether that is feasible.
    If you like the location and would like to join but can't make Friday or would prefer a different day or park, please let me know in the comments below! Thanks
