Full description

Visit the Fort De Soto Park in Tierra Verde on an e-bike tour. Join your guide as you cycle along sandy shorelines and discover the wildlife native to this part of Florida. Then, visit the historic fort and museum and learn about the park's history, dating back as far as 1,000 A.D.

Meet your guide at the Fort De Soto boat ramps and set out on your guided e-bike experience. Cycle through a tunnel of trees and emerge on a waterfront bike trail.

Follow the paved trail through the park, passing nesting Ospreys, shady oak trees, and a variety of mangroves along the way. Marvel at sandy beaches while learning about the park's many species of birds and native plants. Your guide will even teach you how you could live off the land.

Then, arrive at Fort De Soto, where your guide will tell you all about the history of this area. Hear stories about native Americans, soldiers, and the construction of the fort before heading inside to explore the old military structure.

View the remains of Battery Laidley and see the last four 12-inch M 1890-MI mortars remaining in North America. Climb to the very top of the fort where cannons are pointed at Tampa Bay, and enjoy sweeping views of the park and beyond.

Visit the snack shack or take a quick bathroom break before hopping back onto your e-bike. Cycle along a nature trail boasting spectacular views as you make your way back to the starting point, where your Fort De Soto Park cycling tour comes to an end.
