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.

This path isn't scenic or quiet by any means. It runs right along always-busy US1. There's quite a few intersections to cross, mostly at traffic lites. Watch out there! On the upside, it's the *only* path from SW Miami to the Brickell area. And theres ...read more
