Alafia River State Park is a Florida State Park, located in Hillsborough County in central Florida, 10 miles southeast of Tampa on County Road 39.

Recreational Activities

The park has such amenities as bicycling, birding, canoeing, fishing, hiking, horse trails, picnicking areas, wildlife viewing and full camping facilities. This park is especially great for mountain bikers as a Mountain bike club has developed a great amount of advanced trails. It should be noted that this area was once a phosphorus strip mine. This mine was abandoned before remediation laws took effect so the area where mountain biking exists is an erratic mixture of pond depressions and abrupt hills jutting out from the surface. The 'jungle' has grown back over the surface area of course.
