The only thing this trail needs is a bathroom somewhere. We had a nice breeze off the water. Well worth the trip to get there though.
We rode the Moore haven East section of the trail from Moore Haven to Clewiston on Sunday January 28, 2023. The 11.5 mile trail (23 mile round trip) is a smooth, very wide , paved trail which follows the top of the elevated dike and provides expansive views of the fields , canals and Lake. There are vehice gates at each end and two near the middle with pedestrian/ bike pass thrus to one side. We parked in a huge, paved parking lot at the Moore Haven damn, suitable for cars, trucks and RV's. What a great bike ride.
We rode this on our Ebikes 12/22/2022. The Jungle parking lot and restrooms were open as was the parking lot for the Pelican Island Nature Walk. The road is wide and hard packed sand. Pretty smooth overall. Great jungle scenery. Even though you are on a populated barrier island it feels like you are in the middle of nowhere. Then part of the road runs along the channel inlet and past gorgeous houses and boats. We rode the whole 8 miles then caught the A1A road back up to the trailhead parking lot. Fun to do once for sure.
We were not able to connect the dots without a spill from a flat tire on a bridge in traffic. The nearby bikeshop was closed and only opens a couple of days a week. The trail needs signs and cleanup to allow for what this map displays.
Went to ride this today, however, the road is closed to the parking lot for the jungle trail. Also, the Pelican Island National Reserve was closed. Probably due to storm damage was our guess.
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.
I would agree with everything said above re: conditions of the road. I would only add that I started at the northern end of the Old Dixie Highway bridge and used bike lanes to get to the south end of the GRP. From the bridge to the north end at Walton Road was exactly 7 miles, so it is adequate if you want a 10-14 mile workout. Only one big traffic intersection and one relatively easy roundabout to contend with along the whole expanse. Agree that I wouldn’t travel out of my way for this trail, but it’s nice to have close by.
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!
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.
We loved this trail, great paths, lots of wildlife and wasn’t too busy when we went.
This rating (1 star) is for those interested in inline skating on this trail. At the very beginning, there’s a long straight stretch of flat pavement that’s perfect. But it doesn’t last long… I’d guess half a mile in, it turns to terribly bumpy asphalt. Unless you’re looking for the shortest of runs, I’d ignore this trail for inline skating.
My husband and I biked from Pahokee Campground towards Belle Grade, which was mostly paved, for a 15 mile round trip ride yesterday. Today we rode in the opposite direction to Port Mayaca for a 25 mile ride. That section is mostly dirt/gravel but well packed. Saw lots of wildlife, of course gators and many birds including eagles.
