Event Details

Brooker Creek Preserve is where you can explore some of the last natural habitats left in Pinellas County. Find out what makes and maintains forested wetland, oak hammock and pine flatwood ecosystems, and the plants and animals associated with these different ecosystems. 

All ages are welcome.  Children under the ages of 16 must be accompanied by an adult and those younger than 6 may find this hike challenging.

Guided Hike Information
Volunteer Hike Guides will meet participants in the lobby of the Education Center 10 minutes before the scheduled start time. We strongly suggest all hikers visit the restroom before we begin as there are no facilities along the trail.

  • Guided hikes are under a mile in length, much of which is on unimproved, uneven sandy trails.
  • Hikes take about two (2) hours to complete.
  • Please wear sturdy, closed-toe shoes, sneakers or boots.
  • Insect repellent (bug spray) is strongly recommended in summer months.
  • Bring plenty of drinking water and a snack.
  • A hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen are also recommended.
  • Pets are not permitted.
  • No smoking is allowed.
  • Trained volunteers will guide the hike.
