Welcome to the Brooker Creek Preserve, Pinellas County’s largest remaining natural area!
This audio tour takes you through the Friends Trail. It is located at the end of Lora Lane, a short drive from the Environmental Education Center. This hiking trail has been left in its natural state to minimize the impact of our presence in this area. The trail takes hikers through pine flatwood habitats, past a swamp under restoration, and eventually to the banks of Brooker Creek! Some portions of the trail may have standing water during the rainy season.
Keep in mind, there are no facilities or trash receptacles out here. We encourage you to hold on to (or pick up) any trash and dispose of it properly when you return home. Please remain on the designated hiking trail and yield to horses as you cross the horse exercise trail. In Brooker Creek Preserve, all plants and animals are protected and no feeding of wildlife is allowed. In an effort to protect the local flora and fauna, pets, bicycles, alcohol and smoking are not permitted. The trail is open from sunrise to sunset.
We hope you enjoy your walk at "Our Wildest Place"!
