If you start from the North you can park at Delray Oaks Natural area 2021 SW 29th St Delray Beach, head south on Congress on sidewalk once you cross over bridge splitting Delray from Boca make a right that’s the beginning from the North. Nice trail all the bridges to Spanish River, Yamato and the Tri-Rail are complete so you go underneath the overpassed. I went to the south end Glades and headed back over North at Yamato and went back south to ride in the Spanish River Athletic field and around by library. If you start out at the South End you can park at the CVS 686 Glades Rd Boca Raton, FL , cross over Glades at and hook a right that will be the South Entrance.
This is right in my backyard. It runs North/South along Haitus from Oakland to State Road 84. Then you can go East to University or West all the way to Markum Park. We’ve done 20 miles back and forth on this trail! There’s a couple of intersections you have to cross including Sunrise Blvd. but free and clear overall.
If you want a more peaceful ride, detour off the main trail at Bear Cut Preserve, then take the Crandon Park roads by the beach to the lighthouse. You can visit the old zoo and see the kite surfers and not deal with so much traffic.
We did the southern half of this trail on electric unicycles. The two big downsides of the trail are the many, many street crossings and the poor quality of the pavement. On an electric unicycle, electric scooter, One Wheel, etc. the ride is too bumpy to get much enjoyment out of it. The path is lined with trees which is good for shade, but the roots of those trees create sharp ridges in asphalt or broken concrete slabs. Just when you get up to a fun cruising speed, you hit the bumps. In some cases, those bumps are very hard to see in the mottled shadows cast by the trees. This would be less of a problem on a racing bike or mountain bike. I would definitely NOT recommend trying to use it for inline skating or electric skateboards. The bigger your wheels the better.
We only ended up doing half the trail because we spent half our time waiting at stoplights. There are _so many_ road crossings. So you ride for a minute or two, then wait a minute or two at a light. Our average speed was half what it normally was.
Following the trail is also a challenge. The "trail" often spits you out into a rail station or parking lot, and you have to hunt around for the trail again. We also encountered quite a bit of construction and had to take to the streets to get through some sections.
I'd give this trail two stars, except it has nice moments now and then--large elevated walkways above the street, or speeding through huge columns that support the train above.
My wife and I, along with other tandem riding friends, rode this trail twice – first Clockwise, then C-Clockwise. Pavement is pretty smooth – no rough spots to speak of. Very few cross roads – most aren’t busy. We parked by the Dog Park – Free parking and some spaces are shaded by trees. Restrooms near the entrance are pretty well kept. We even had a chance to see the Goodyear Blimp – probably prepping for the Superbowl this coming weekend.
This is one of our bike from home routes. The interesting thing is that you have the Biscayne Trail from Old Cutler down to Black Point on 87th Avenue. That's true and correct, but it's only the start. It then becomes a gravel, levy trail from Black Point all the way to Card Sound Road. That levy trail was designated the Biscayne Trail before the 87th Avenue section. You can opt to turn around at the entrance to Biscayne National Park or continue on down to Card Sound. I do not recommend riding on Card Sound Road, but you can turn back up the levy, or you can choose to ride up Tallahassee Road which is dirt road down there and goes back up to the motor speedway but you are no longer on Biscayne trail then. We rode these routes for decades before it was ever a designated trail. Great in the winter months for bird watching and spotting crocs and gators. There are often also manatees in the cross canals near the water gates.
excellent trail at night, not too many people. inline skating.
I entered a park by Hiatus Rd into a nature preserve. Followed the path. Be careful there was horse shot on the path that you have to dodge as you proceed west. Then you have to navigate a lot of side streets until you make it to Vista Views Park...which has a nice bike path. There are no shoulders along the side street roads so you need to be careful. My avg speed was slow because you are riding sidewalks.
Overall I didn’t like the trail. I started at the west end in Tamarac in a nice park. As you go more East it gets uglier scenery. Also crossing the streets is a hassle as you have to go left or right to cross. And the streets can get pretty busy. As you approach the turnpike, then you have to ride on roads and I turned around by then. I just didn’t feel inspired by this path.
A few bumps but what trail doesn’t have bumps. I roller blade and it’s fine for me. Very long
This was the day I was going to do the complete greenway, including both disconnected sections. I never got on the east section because the end point was Rt. 84 and Anglers, and as I pedaled up 84, I didn't see an Anglers intersection. I knew I had missed it by the time I got to 441, but what the hell, I kept going. Bad choice, because that's when 84 turned into a superhighway with ginormous trucks roaring by at 80 mph. I finally made it to University and got on the west section, which I was already familiar with. Only when you get maybe a mile past Flamingo, you hit construction which includes no more access to the greenway. I'm again going up 84, this time on the south side against the traffic. More racing cars and apoplectic trucks. Did make it to Markham at last, but by then I was so tuckered I only did one lap. I think I'll wait a few months before trying again.
Rode the trail for first time yesterday. Lots of good scenery and had exercise stations along the way. Only criticism is the low I-95 overpass which had 5’5” clearance. Even had a station with air pump and bike tools on early part of the trail if departing from North Miami Beach library. Instant favorite and will ride there again!!!
