About the Trail

Phone:

Experience this 13.1-mile out-and-back trail near New Port Richey, Florida, called Starkey Park Trail. This is a very popular area for road biking, running, and walking, so you’ll likely encounter other people while exploring. The trail is open year-round and is beautiful to visit anytime. Dogs are welcome but must be on a leash.

The paved trail in Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park stretches across the preserve for about 6 miles. Well-spaced shelters along the trail offer pleasant places to rest in the shade; many are even furnished with ice water. The park, a short distance northwest of Tampa, is one of the largest natural areas in Pasco County. A mixture of pine woods, wetlands, and palmetto scrub can be experienced here, and recreational opportunities include hiking, biking, birding, horseback riding, and camping.
