New River Greenway

Safe except for intersections

December, 2022 by ozzman

I rode from tree tops park on Orange Drive west to Hiatus road and then north to the Greenway from there and headed west to Markham park, where it ends. You might try to get on the levee behind Markham park if you wish and have time. The western part is very bike friendly except for the intersections but most have lights and crossing lanes. It intersects Hiatus Greenway on Hiatus road if you want to go north. Next time I will try going east and try to catch the Greenway from Nob Hill road. Still discovering!

Lake Trail

How about providing real directions to the trail

November, 2022 by jp416699

We tried to find this trail. Google maps led me into downtown West Palm . Apple led me way out of the way. It would be real nice if the actual starting address was provided so the trail can be found. Also, indicate if off street parking is available.

Big Pappa

El Rio Trail

A little known connection is the trail from Tri-Rail thru old IBM complex under Spanish River to Spanish River Athletic Park and Spanish River Library. Nice ride

Black Creek Trail (Miami-Dade)

awful signage.

October, 2022 by paulheller

Trying to stick to this trail which is route 7, i got lost because of the signage. Twice I got Lost and once on a community trail that I was totally off track. By US1 you have Black Point route 7 pointing in two directions and i took the wrong turn because of it. Scenery is fine in some parts but ugly in other sections. I won’t do this trail again. Next time I will take Old Cutler trail.

Black Creek Trail (Miami-Dade)

signage of the trail.

October, 2022 by paulheller

I never rode this trail before. The signage was very confusing. First I made a wrong turn that brought me to the old cutler road trail. I backtracked and missed this trail again because of the signage. I found it at US1. But there were 6 signs with Black Point route 7 with 2 different directions. I once again missed it. Found myself riding a bike path but at the end realized it was not bike route 7. At this point I needed to use r he map in this app. I took quail roost rd and eventually found it. There are some nice sections but also very ugly sections. The next time I plan to take the Old Cutler Bay route from Black Point. That trail seems to Be more scenic.

Atlantic Greenway

South Beach Atlantic greenway

August, 2022 by jagnell55

This is one of my favorite trails so far. Riding along with a view of the Atlantic was awesome. We started at the end which took us by the Boats or should I say Yachts wow to have that kind of money. The trail is awesome, but no E Bikes allowed so the 8 miles needs to be peddled. People issues around the main beach area but then clear sailing. Worth the parking hassle so don't miss this one!

South Dade Trail

A Big Disappointment

July, 2022 by aw7464745

Terrible for a road bike. Most of the intersections are under construction, and the trail is generally not taken care of. It goes through some dodgy parts of Miami. I was very disappointed. I don’t know how this trail was rated so high.

Plantation Preserve Linear Trail

This was a very nice trail. We saw lots of wildlife to include 2 little bunnies ¿. Very thankful for this app otherwise I would have never known was there.

Pompano Airpark Bike Trail

Love This Trail

June, 2022 by meganrimli

I like the pompano air park for inline skating. As mentioned in previous reviews, there is a particular length of the trail that is rougher than smooth. The softer the wheel, the better the feel, though. If you’re not super experienced with skating, you might avoid it, as there are several holes in the concrete in some areas of the rough patches, but otherwise, it’s quite doable for those of us more accustomed to urban skating. This trail is enclosed from any car traffic — a huge plus that you don’t need to cross any streets to continue on the trail at any point. There are several driveways for the air park that cross into the trail, but seldom is there traffic in and out of them. I give the trail 4 stars— missing a star for the rough patches, but overall, definitely worth the 20 min drive it costs me to get there.

Rickenbacker Trail

beautiful ride

May, 2022 by aunika

This is by far one of the prettiest rides I’ve ever done. The scene over the water is like something out of a movie. It is a little confusing when you get down into Biscayne key because I didn’t know I was still on the path. Nevertheless there’s a bike lane and is still very pretty and feels decently safe.

Bluegill Trail

great trail!

May, 2022 by carleighalfrey

Went on an overcast day and was definitely better than going on a sunny day, not much (if any) shade but an easy ride and saw some cool wildlife! Lots of snakes, fish, sandhill cranes w their babies, raccoons and 2 big gators!

Bluegill Trail

Very nice trail, but the restrooms at Karen T. Marcus Sandhill Crane Access Park were closed way earlier than it said on the sign.

May, 2022 by davidehand

I avoided this trail because I thought my road bike would not be up to riding on this type of surface. The trail is actually quite nice to ride on. I got to see come cool wildlife i.e. sandhill cranes and their young uns, wild turkey, swallow tailed kites as well as the usual cast of characters like heron, egrets, soft shelled turtles, gopher tortoises etc... I also saw some hogs I think are invasive.
If you follow the trail far enough north, you'll come to a bridge that you can cross, and there's a network of trails there.
