Description Suggest an Edit

The M-Path is a paved multi-use trail in urban Miami-Dade County, which was opened in 1983 and is part of the Miami-Dade Transit (MDT) system. The trail follows a MDT right-of-way under the elevated Metrorail guideways.

The M-Path is one of Florida's oldest rail trails built atop a portion of the fabled Florida East Coast Railway (FEC). In 1896 Henry Flagler's railroad reached downtown Miami, and in 1905 he began an extension of the railraod to Key West, completing it 1912.

The M-Path generally follows US 1 (South Dixie Highway) and crosses 28 roadway intersections. The path connects the Metrorail stations of Brickell, Vizcaya, Coconut Grove, Douglas Road, the University of Miami and Dadeland South. Just north of the latter station (at Kendall Drive), the paved path continues south as the South Dade Trail, all the way to Florida City. The entire route forms a 31-mile corridor.

I agree with all the negative comments on this page. This path is difficult to follow, poorly lit, in case you need to get to work before sunrise or after sunset. Add to that that Miami is a bike-hating, angry community of very bad and discourteous drivers ...read more

awful intersections

I use the M path to ride to/from work. It is mildly better than riding on Dixie. Cars seem to always come close to hitting me as I make one of the many crossings. Unless you've ridden the trail before, you often can't see where the trail picks up again ...read more
