Starkey Wilderness Trail In New Port Richey Florida

The Jay B. Starkey Wilderness Park is located at 10500 Wilderness Park Blvd. in New Port Richey Florida. This is a regional park managed by Pasco County that features a 6.5 mile paved trail that connects to the 42-mile Suncoast Trail. Visitors will also find picnic shelters, hiking, biking, equestrian trails, a primitive campground, and camping cabins. See more photos and info on my website: https://www.trailviewmount.com

Did you notice how quiet it was on the Starkey compared to the traffic noise that we seem to "not notice" on the Suncoast Trail?

Absolutely wfin. I have no interest in biking the Suncoast. It looks too boring. And other reviewers say that also. There are too many better pavements to hit in the area. Thanks for seeing my thread.

The Suncoast can be boring and you get a lot of TT types training out there and they don't want other riders getting in their way.

Did a ride up there from Dunedin with my B.O.B. trailer last summer loaded with camping gear. Camped off the trail in one of the primitive sites, then the next day over to the Suncoast south and back through Oldsmar to home. Very nice ride in the SWP. Suncoast was better than Trouble Creek or Keystone Road for sure.

Sounds like you had a great time Ridefree. I only do paved trails. Yes DEK those kind do not even, or hardly, acknowledge recreational riders. Thanks for seeing my thread guys. You can get info and photos from all my paved trail adventures at: https://www.trailviewmount.com

I'm heading to NPR Tuesday. We have a place near 54 and 19. Should I take Trouble Creek or use the bike lanes on 54 to get to the trail?

Not sure where you are coming from (starting from), but you can ride through the Wilderness Park on a beautiful 8 mile paved trail from the Suncoast Trail. Come up from 54 on the Suncoast Trail, west on Starkey Wilderness Trail, exit the Wilderness Park at the west, and access Trouble Creek (look on Google Maps for that last connection) and ride out to US19.
