What will you see on your Black Friday Hike?
At Hillsborough River State Park visitors have four hiking trails to choose from, which total 7.3 miles. Along the Hillsborough River, the trails take hikers through a dense, hydric hammock forest and provide interpretive displays, changing elevations and a multitude of opportunities to view and photograph nature.
The Wetlands Trail begins in a pine flatwoods community and continues to fork in the trail, offering visitors a choice to enjoy the Fort King Trail or continue on the Wetlands Trail.
The trails are another example of how Hillsborough River State Park is where history and nature come together. A trail map is available at the ranger station. Click here to learn more
