Of the 750 acres that make up Saddle Creek Park in Lakeland, the majority of the acreage is taken up by former phosphate mine pits that are now lakes. There are two main trails that are very good for hiking, the 1.2 mile Nature Trail and the 2.3 mile Tenoroc Trails (made up of the 1.1 mile Flatwoods Loop and 1.2 mile Lake Loop). The Nature Trail is very broad and provides an easy hike. The Tenoroc Trails are narrower and provide a more strenuous hike.
