    Great park, but too many ticks

    I love this park, great long trails with beautiful scenery. However, without fail, if I bring my dog here, he manages to pick up a few ticks. I took him a few times but had to stop because of it.

    Worth the drive from St Pete

    Such a nice shaded forest to hike around in with the pup in tow! He (and we) were very happy to have such a long and leisurely walk that wasn’t very busy at all and had a respite from the sun.

    Plenty of great paths, both paved and unpaved, with some shaded areas to rest and get water. Wish there was a better map of the trails though. Day parking is $2.

    Lots of room to walk

    Lots of long paths, roads and trails to walk. I try to avoid the paved trails since they have a lot of bicyclists. Walking the dirt roads is the best.

    Starkey Park

    Starkey is a beautiful park. There are miles of paved and unpaved trails to walk. They don't currently have designated dog areas and dogs must be on a leash. It's great if you want to take a long walk with your dog.
