Hillsborough River State Park

Located just a few minutes down the road from Tampa, Hillsborough River State Park in Thonotosassa seems a million miles away from the urban sprawl. This dog-friendly park has four pet-friendly hiking trails to choose from, which are over seven miles in length. Your pooch can join you all over the park. They take in dense, hydric hammock forest and offer a great spot for wildlife enthusiasts. The fee for entrance into the park is $6 per vehicle. The park is open every day of the week from 8am until sunset. Visit Website

Or call (813) 987-6771 or email ava.l.foster@floridadep.gov for more information.

    Nice Hike

    This is a great place to hike with dogs just be sure to bring plenty of water and your own poop bags. The river is full of gators (as is any body of freshwater in Fl) so keep the pups away from the water!
