New River Greenway

Nice trail, but...

May, 2017 by mlcbear

As pretty much everyone else stated, the trail itself is nice. It was late morning till noon by the time we returned. The trail was still shaded on the north side. We rode up the trail along the canal a little ways north. It would be nice to ride farther. Once you get far enough west , away from the intersections, you can get moving ,but the crossings are a bear. At one crossing we had the walk sign ,yet as we crossed the cars kept turning right and we looked back and saw they also had a green arrow ,something was out of sync. I think my husband got tired of hearing me say that they need to build pedestrian bridges over these intersections !!! Maybe cyclists need to come together and raise some of the money to help with that.

Hiatus Road Greenway

Happiness

May, 2017 by hrubin411

When I decided to start walking again as my body started to heal from Epstein-Barr virus I discovered they put this path down across the street from my house basically. I used to work Hiatus Road before any work was done then it got obliterated by a new road and a lot of trees. Now I take my daily power walk on the greenway and I'm doing over seven miles total daily. It's a very peaceful path with lots of nature to experience, wide open and welcoming. Plus, I almost see no one.

Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail

Cycling in the Tropics of the Keys

April, 2017 by jimklepzig

My wife and I took the trip together and really enjoyed it. We started at Key Largo by parking our vehicle (free of charge with advance arrangements) at the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce/Visitor's Center. We unloaded our bikes here and started at 6 AM pedaling south from mile marker 106. We were in Key West at 4 PM. Other than a few blinding rainstorms, the trip was uneventful. We enjoyed an extra day and night in Key West, then headed north. Knowing that wind conditions are tougher going north, we planned the return trip in 2 days - smart planning! 50 miles into the 20-25 mph winds was all we wanted to tackle in one day. All along the way, you'll find great little restaurants, shops, etc. On the way north, we decided not to tempt our fate a second time on the 7 mile bridge. Here's a secret...the Lower Keys has a bus service with stops scattered all throughout the Keys. Buses have bike racks on them, and for just a few bucks you can put your bike on the bus and ride across the 7 mile bridge, or through any other areas that you wish not to bike. One more tip...we took a long time in advance studying Google Earth satellite and street views to get a good idea of what we were up against. Very good tool to help you see the bike path, bridges, etc.

I was pleased to also see a bit of construction going on as well on the bridges. Yes, several of the bridges are closed as other posts have pointed out, but it's all about finding the funds for these infrastructure projects. I will look forward to the day when the trail is complete and bikers can be totally separate from traffic.

All in all, it was a great 212 mile trip (less 10 miles on the bus!)...if you like biking in a tropical environment, this may be the trail for you.

Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail

Key Largo to Key West in 2 days. Great trip!

April, 2017 by danbflorida

This is my first time biking the Overseas Heritage Trail and I normally don't bike anywhere besides dedicated bike trails. I biked the trail on Thu/Fri April 20-21.

I had my wife drop me off in Key Largo on day 1 and I biked to Marathon. The bike trail and lanes were really well thought out and the few times I had to cross the street really were not a big deal. Just waited for an ebb to the traffic and easy peasy. I was happily surprised at how wide the bike lanes were.

Day 2 started with biking over the 7-mile bridge and for the most part of this ride, I rode on the oncoming side of the road. This part of the ride did not have as many miles of dedicated bike trails and a number of the pedestrian bridges were closed forcing me to bike over the bridges. I had no issues with this as there was more than enough space (4-6+ ft) keeping me away from cars. There were a number of sections of this part of the trail where I had to ride on the road/curb but for the most part, I typically had a 4+ ft curb. My preference is to ride against oncoming traffic (on the curb or bike lane) as I feel if someone swerves off the road, I at least will see it and have time to get out of the way. I made sure to keep a blinking light on the front and rear of the bike and the two times I saw a car start swerving onto the curb, they immediately corrected as I assume they saw me and my blinking light. Both drivers had their cell phone in their hand as they passed.

I used the comments on this site to prepare for the ride and hope my comments provide help for others. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and most likely will bike the entire trip in one day the next time.

Snake Creek Trail

Snake Creek Trail Death Trap

April, 2017 by jeffray1

This is a terrible trail if you are actually planning for a long bike ride. I almost died twice, which did get my heart racing, but not in the way I expect from an exercise session. First, the trail is supposed to be 6.5 miles long, but it's cut into segments of about a mile, each one ending with a major road to cross. This wouldn't be so bad if it only meant waiting for a light and crossing the street, but the problem is that the trail doesn't pick up right on the other side, and the signage is pretty poor. That means that when you come to the end, you have to sort of look up and down the road to figure out where the next part is. I was specifically looking to work on speed, so stopping to scan the horizon every three to four minutes is very annoying. The only time you don't have to cross a street is where there is an underpass, which is the first place I almost died. The clearance is only 5'5", and the sign is not only really close to the actual death trap, but also hard to see at 15-20 mph. I was nearly decapitated. Even worse, the underpass itself is filthy and seedy, so a pretty scary place to ride. A really great place to shoot a horror film, if your equipment is under 5'5". The other hazard is the spots where there are unexpected disruptions in the path, like tree roots tearing up the paving or a SET OF STAIRS AT THE END OF THE DARK SPOOKY UNDERPASS. In both places, I barely escaped tearing the front wheel off my bike. All in all, the trail is dangerous and frustrating. I give it a 0/10. Would not ride again. I gave it one star because negative stars is not a thing.

New River Greenway

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

March, 2017 by jimritch

We rode this trail from Hiatus west to the terminus on the far side of Markham Park, through the park, and back again, about 18 miles. The Good: The trail itself is wonderful-paved, landscaped, benches, wildlife (iguanas, waterfowl, turtles), away from the road and heavy traffic. If you go as far west as possible, you hit L-35, the levee trail on the edge of the Everglades that goes north to Loxahatchee. The Bad: as others have already said, every 1-2 miles, the trail comes to a major road crossing and you must go 50 yards or so off the trail to the intersection and cross, carefully, with the crossing signal. The Ugly: the fat lady in her $60,000 Lexus SUV who cut us off as we crossed at a signal, and waved at us as she boogied down the road. Bottom Line: we enjoyed the trail in spite of itself. We enjoyed all of the good things it had to offer and tolerated the bad. We will go back again, but we will not recommended the trail to our friends because it is dangerous and somewhat of a pain to bike.

Black Creek Trail (Miami-Dade)

Watch your 6

March, 2017 by fidencio.nino

The trail is amazing. Very smooth compared to the bike trail that runs along US1. There is a foul smelling part as you get closer to Blackpoint Marina, but it is bearable. I have seen a lot of Iguanas, especially once you cross Quail roost headed north. Also, where this trail finishes you can go to Larry and Penny Park and ride there. I will say the shadiest part of the trail is when you are approaching US1 from the west side. Had someone try to come up on me, but I am not sweet. Take a knife, or if you have your CCW, you should carry. The only light that works for crossing is the one on 127 ave and 112 ave (Allapattah).

Incredible Trail

February, 2017 by gofcort

It's much longer than described. I passed a farmers market on Sunday and a luxury RV park. The sun was shining. The birds were flying. Stunning nature and scenery. The path is a very smooth ride. I continued to ride it east up mcnab. I made it to powerline ........and then could not find the signs. I'm hoping it goes all the way to federal highway.

Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail

Weekend Warriors Review

February, 2017 by jeffgwhite

My wife and I completed the Florida Keys trail in late January, 2017. We did the ride in four days while enjoying stops to various Keys for the evenings. It was a great experience as we concluded our trip with two days in Key West. However, like many have reviewed on this site, expect a lot of road biking with car zooming around you. Overall I would estimate road cycling at about 80-85% with the remainder being nice trails for bikers/walkers. My wife is a bit hesitant for doing rides on roads. The good news is she is glad she did it...however if she had known the road activity she would have passed on this trip. The following recaps our trip for your consideration:
-Rented the bikes from All Keys Cycles in Key Largo. Nice guys with older but very well conditioned bikes. Bikes came with a tube and CO2 pump. It was needed as we did get one flat. All Keys Cycles picked up our bike in Key West. Bikes are hybrids, highly recommended. Don't suggest road bikes unless you stay on the road 100%.
-First day biked from Key Largo to Cheeca Lodge in Islamorada. Very nice resort with reasonable prices. Highly recommend. We stopped for a drink at Marker 88, nice stop with great views. About 22 miles this day.
-Day two Islamorada to Marathon. Longer ride around 35 miles. We wanted to get to Marathon to take on 7 Mile Bridge early in the morning. Stop in to Angler and Ale for lunch on Duck Key-awesome. In Marathon stayed at Tranquility Bay Resort. Nice resort with a bar great views of the gulf.
-Day Three, started at sunrise to take on 7 Mile Bridge. Start early for less traffic. There was still a significant amount of traffic with a narrow bike lane. No issues, the fastest my wife went all week. :) Destination was Ramrod Key, Looe Resort, about 22 miles. We got there around 10a, room unavailable until 3pm. Very little to do in lower keys unless you are a fishermen or diver. We are neither. Nice folks with "retro" accommodations.
-Day Four, destination Key West. Great ride from Ramrod Key, mostly trail with a few surprises of trail endings...then back on Highway 1. Around a 30 mile ride. Stayed at Saint Hotel an Autograph Selection hotel of Marriott. Used my points. Great location on Eaton street and a secret exit for Duvall street. Highly recommended. We enjoyed a couple days and drinks in Key West with no more biking.
-Saturday walked over to Enterprise to pick up our rental car for a day. Drove to Ft. Lauderdale airport.

In sum, a great experience. If you are comfortable on the road, a Highway...go for it. We are glad we did but wouldn't do it again. BTW, you go over 43 bridges.

Lets continue to help Rails To Trails so maybe some dollars can be allocated in advancing the Keys Trail.

Commodore Trail

A pleasant afternoon ride

February, 2017 by denfor

We rode the Commodore Trail today and found it to be a mixed bag.
There were some very lovely spots along the way where the path was wide and clearly marked and then there were a few sections where you have to ride in the road. The scenery along the way is interesting. Lots of beautiful homes with meticulous landscaping, churches, schools and a downtown area where there were shops and restaurants to explore. We enjoyed resting in a couple of parks along the way. While this is a good trail for adults, I would hesitate to bring young children because there are many busy roads to cross in some sections.
