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.
While I ride the stretch from the Sebastian Inlet bridge to Melbourne beach proper, I don't consider it great. You have two choices, ride on the fairly well maintained sidewalk, or in the road. The mamils in their spiffy colors and 5k bikes ride on the road. The are crazy. There is no bike lane, and at times the speed limit is 55, which means cars are passing you inches away at 65mph. Remember, this is the land of Q-tips driving, and texters. You have to be out of your mind. The side walk is fine to ride on. Wind can be brutal, I time it so the wind is at my back on the way home. There are lots of little side roads to explore as well. The stretch from the bridge to Vero is awful. The sidewalk here is individually poured concrete sections, and you will thump/thump for 20 miles. Terrible ride.
We enjoyed a ride at the northern end on a sunny day in February. We started at Lake Okeechobee Park heading clockwise (east). WARNING- just about a mile east of the park the trail stops at Taylor Creek. You have to ride to the busy road and cross the creek on a short bridge with no shoulder. If you aren’t used to riding in traffic you won’t like it. Then getting back on the trail requires going down a road with no trespassing signs. On our return trip the road was closed with a locked gate and we had to walk around it over some rough terrain to get out. From the park you have 24 miles of beautiful trail along the levee with views of lake and canal till that segment ends. But I don’t understand how a bike trial can have such difficult access issues.
My wife and I enjoyed a ride along the entire trail that follows a canal. Beautiful wild life of birds, otters and even saw an alligator sunning him/herself. Level grade made it an easy peddle and we enjoyed stopping along the path to read info about the trail and surrounding nature along the way. A peaceful ride in the outskirts of the busy West Palm Beach area.
