HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY, Fla. — You can earn a reward for getting some exercise, exploring the outdoors and experiencing nature over the next four months.

Hillsborough County's popular Hiking Spree is back for another winter season. More than 5,000 people participated in the event last year.

There are 25 trails at 19 locations throughout Hillsborough County that are part of the Hiking Spree. The trails are rated from easy to strenuous and range from less than a half-mile to over four miles in length.
