This is a nicely shaded, 2-mile paved loop trail at Alderman's Ford Conservation Park (Lithia, FL east of Brandon) along the Alafia River. We discovered it while checking out kayak launches on the River (see Paddling on the Alafia River ) Off the beaten path and not a long trail, but a scenic stop if you're in the area. (Map link and photos below.)
