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.
Nice trail, surfaces vary but always good enough. TrailLink could be more helpful re location of parking though, and trail access, esp for walkers who want to be as close as possible. Enter the university from the first entrance west of the canal on Glades Rd or enter on NW 20th St. There are big lots and a garage at NW 20th St & East University Drive. The path can be accessed via an off-road sidewalk running from that intersection a little south along the unnamed road that runs behind the big dorm complex. from thatfrom
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.
This is a great scenic trail, the only down side is that cars are allowed on this road also. With lots of sharp corners, it can be scary at times wondering if a car is coming the other way. But overall great scenery!
After striking out at the Moore Haven and Clewiston sites (closed), we went to Belle Glade and road up to Pahoke. When this trail is finished it will be magnificent!
Talked to Clewiston COC. They say that the trail is open in Belle Glade. We’ll check it out tomorrow.
