This is a fund raising event for the Lake Myrtle Elementary School (22844 Weeks Blvd, Land O' Lakes, FL 34639).  The Cypress Creek Preserve (North) provides a beautiful, partially shaded, 5 mile paved, flat, multiuse trail through northern Pasco County.  

Cypress Creek Preserve purchased to provide flood protection and serve as a public water supply, Cypress Creek's floodplain helps filter nutrients in runoff waters. Cypress Creek Well Field serves as an important source of water for the surrounding region and is managed by Tampa Bay Water (TBW). Cypress Creek is a tributary of the Hillsborough River. Within the property, the creek threads its way through an expanse of cypress and hardwood forests. Slash pine, longleaf pine and palmetto grow on the higher "ridges," which are collectively known as Florida flatwoods.
