Q: FYI, Pasco County Commissioners are trying to build a road through the Preserve which will cut off access to the JB Starkey Preserve. Please contact Pasco County to help stop this. -Guest

The trails here are sandy. Get ready to empty your shoes! There are multi-use trails throughout the park. A hard road/trail meanders in and out of the power lines. There are a few ponds to fish. There is an old homestead that has a hunt camp nearby. This is an excellent place to hike, bike, camp, or ride a horse.

This is a very nice park with 18 miles of trails altogether. I hiked about 3 miles into the park and was pleasantly surprised. Most of where I hiked was pretty open so it got pretty hot. There were some really nice young pine trees, some very pretty flowers and lots of other interesting Florida plant-life. It was a really nice hike.
