We had a great time last time! Hiking is the perfect way to get out and enjoy the natural beauty of the Tampa Bay area. Come on out and join us. The park is located on the eastern shore of Lake Tarpon, which is the largest lake in Pinellas County (5 miles long and over a mile wide). There are three nature trails. The elevated boardwalk runs along the boat ramp, leading to an elevated lookout tower for a scenic overview of Lake Tarpon. The North Trail begins at Shelter #10, running through a cypress swamp to the canoe trail—it does not loop back. The Peggy Park Trail features self-guided.

Meeting Location: We'll be meeting at shelter 10

Suggested items to bring: Lot's of fun, water, binoculars, proper footwear, snack and your cam

Carpooling: If you would like to carpool please annotate it in the remarks section comments when RSVPing.

Looking forward to seeing you there,

Please don't forget to RSVP, the sooner the better, as a courtesy to the host(s) and to encourage others to come out as well. Event host(s) volunteer their time to make each event happen and all we ask is to make the effort to RSVP. We understand everybody's circumstances are different, but please make it a habit to RSVP as early as possible as the success of an event lies on knowing others will be at the event as well. We hope you have a great time! 😀
