We rode some sections but avoided the parts of the trail that did not seem safe. Parts of the trail are littered. The trail surface in some parts is in bad shape. But... riding over the water was pretty awesome.
Arrow straight for 7 miles along a canal, watch for the wild life. Route back has curves but nothing crazy. Great ride, but bring water, No shade .
We are in our early 60's and have biked several trails in recent years. We chose the Heritage Trail (Key Largo to Key West) to bike with another couple of who had never biked long distance and point to point with gear. We thought this would be a good trail since it was relatively short in distance and flat. As has been stated in other reviews, parts of the trail were well-maintained, the scenery was beautiful and we had some of the best meals/drinks ever on vacation. HOWEVER, if Florida wants this to be a tourist attraction, much trail work needs to be done. Some sections were littered with trash and road gravel and several pedestrian/cyclist bridges were closed, necessitating crossing to the next key alongside cars and trucks. This trail gave new meaning to "switchbacks" and crossing US1 was often challenging--a few designated crosswalks/caution lights would have been nice (take notes from Sanibel). The most harrowing was south of Cudjoe Key where we shared the road for about 4 miles. There was very little signage in spots and the trail would just end. Our friends opted to take a shuttle across 7 mile bridge due to safety concerns which were valid. We observed speeders who "passed" other cars and came dangerously close to us. Generally most drivers were respectful of cyclists; there was just a lot of traffic. While parts of the trail were great, overall we would not recommend to a novice rider or a low risk taker. Riding sections that are cyclist friendly are recommended until Florida Parks can make significant improvements for a safe and enjoyable thru ride.
This is a great ride! Maybe not for everyone— you have a wide, smooth, bright green lane to yourself, but it is adjacent to a busy roadway. That’s plenty good for me. The state park at the end of the trail is very nice, and no traffic there.
The views are great for those of us who don't live near water, but the trail is in need of major repairs. South of Marathon, most of the trail bridges have been closed so you will need to use the bike lane on the road.
What a great concept and if repaired I would like to ride it again.
Just finish the trail from Coral Gables Old Cutler to 114 Ave then the south Dade Trail for a total 28 Miles. The trail is still deteriorating and lots of intersections are under construction, closed or bad signal but was able to finish it without any real incident and very safe from traffic. Still goes through not the best parts of Miami but we are all aware this trail crosses several unpopular parts of the county. Will repeat it next year and hope it improves once the intersections are finished.
This trail is nice but has a lot of driveways that people are constantly using. There is a lot of Debris on the path so use caution.
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.
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.
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.
If you’re up for an adventure and are comfortable enough riding with tractor trailers, speeding traffic, and trucks towing huge boat trailers, this is the ride for you. I did it in September 19-20, 2020 solo, starting at Dagney Johnson Key Largo Hammock Botanical State Park. My husband supported my ride and had a cooler full of water, Gatorade, and cold towels soaked in icy water. I rode it in two segments, stopping in Marathon for the night. Although day 2 was less mileage, the stretch from Sugarloaf to KW was a killer with no shade, and a confusing and disjointed trail. It was of course blinding sun and scorching heat—and even by my standards (I am from Florida and used to the heat). I made it and was no worse for wear. Just did it again this weekend. 5/28/22
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.
