Fish Hawk Trails is a planned development community that sits adjacent to FishHawk Ranch.
These two planned development communities are often confused because of the shared symmetry of the name. However, Fish Hawk Trails is completely independent of FishHawk Ranch and was established a few years prior to FishHawk Ranch during the mid-1990s.
They both take their name from FishHawk Creek which is a tributary stream that passes through the area and feeds into the Alafia River. Fish Hawk Trails is a gated community with a 24-hour manned guard shack that monitors entry and egress.
The community has just over 400 homes in the preserve. The majority of these homes are executive homes consisting of some 2200 square feet up to 6000 square feet built by custom home builders such as Sabal, Arthur Rutenberg, Bartlett and Ken Franklin.
Part of the attraction of Fish Hawk Trails is the community’s miles of walking trails that meander through the dense foliage. These trails offer extensive opportunities to view wildlife in its natural state. Furthermore, Fish Hawk Trails also offers the full list of amenities that one would expect to be associated with such an upscale community.
For instance, Fish Hawk Trails has community baseball fields, fields for field sports such as soccer and both tennis and roller hockey courts. While FishHawk Trails and FishHawk Ranch are uniquely separate developments, they do share many of the same schools.
These schools include both FishHawk Creek and Bevis Elementary schools, Randall Middle School and Newsome High School. All schools are “A” rated!
