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 peaceful trail in the middle of busy surrounding, much like Virginia Gardens itself. It’s lit at night. Surrounded by nice neighborhoods.
Narrow asphalt path with lots of walkers. Not sure where 2.2 miles came from. Even up and back was only 1.4. I did notice a patch south of the dog park as I was leaving.
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.
This is not a trail, it is a route around some nice parks connected by sidewalks along local roads, some quieter than others. TrailLink map is not especially helpful, it doesn’t even mention that the section along Orange Road and that canal actually starts and ends much further than mapped for the Robbin’s Vista View Trail and is nicer than many of the other street/sidewalk loops shown. A turn by turn with street names is badly needed. I’m
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.
West end is nice concrete, flat ride an wide path but with several road crossings. These crossings require short rides along a 5’ pedestrian walk and the crossings have heavy traffic……pay attention. The easterly end is not a trail, but mostly a road edge ride or on pedestrian walks. This section really should be removed from the mapped trail as it is unsafe and promotes illegal pedestrian walk riding. West end is great spot for locals and adjoiners.
Started at the north end by parking at the Hilton and meandering over. Pavement is awful between there and the Congress crossing. Avoided it on the way back. Rest of the path is manageable or really nice. Enjoyed the scenery. And iguanas. Would get out earlier next time to avoid some of the heat but there are shaded spots to stop. If I did it again, I may park near the tri-rail station or the Costco. Never found the guest parking near the university.
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.
Excellent well paved trail/sidewalk on the south side of Palmeto Park road running East and West. Approximately 6+’ wide with only a few intersections and driveways. Great for walking, jogging or biking.
