El Rio Trail

Short ride

March, 2020 by ffemtchild

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.

Green River Parkway Trail

Adequate for Locals

March, 2020 by bassmanbob

This trail is nearest to my home. It is a MUP that is lightly used for local folks, including me, who either walk, run or cycle. Savanah State Park is immediately to the east of this path, which has allowed me to see some wildlife a few times. The highlights have been one hog on the other side of the fence and two alligators on the actual Green River Parkway (GRP) path itself. One was a baby gator sunning himself as I cycled by and the other was about a 5-6 foot gator walking south as I was cycling north. It was pre-dawn, and my spotlight was not bright enough for me to see him far out. By the time I saw him, I was too close to try to turn back. So I rode right by him... he couldn't care less about me and kept going.

I say it's good for locals and gave the path a 3 of 5 stars for a few reasons:
1. There's little to no shade.
2. The Savanah State Park is next to the path, but the road is on the other side of the path. So it feels more like a sidewalk than a nature walk. I consider that a neutral aspect of the path, rather than a negative aspect.
2. The southern 1/3 of the path is relatively smooth, which is on the Martin County side of the path. But the northern St. Lucie County 2/3 of the path is quite bumpy. There are constant dips and imperfections in the surface of the path. I'd say this section is better for foot traffic or casual cycling, rather than serious road cycling. A bike with some shock absorption would be preferred. It's very frustrating for those of us who are avid road cyclists because it would be a perfect location to train intervals with a smoother surface. The uneven surface makes it difficult to feel like you can settle in for the ride.
3. Another neutral feacher of this path is that it starts nowhere and leads to nowhere. It doesn't connect any point of interest to any other point of interest. Yes, the Savanah SP is next to it and just north of it, but there is no access to the northern section unless you have a car. There is no sidewalk or bike lane on that road to the north of the GRP.
4. There are three nice "rest areas" with benches and bike racks, but there is no access to water or facilities. You must bring your own.

FYI: There is about a one mile southern extension of this path that is a concrete sidewalk from Jensen Beach Blvd. to Baker Road. This sidewalk is smoother than the asphalt GRP on St. Lucie County side. South of Baker Road, there is a bike lane on the street that goes about another half mile to Wright Blvd.

So the GRP is adequate if you are nearby, but I would not travel out of my way to visit this path. That being said, I'm glad we have it, especially when I want a short ride during rush hour traffic.

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST)

LOST trail was a delight

February, 2020 by suem.lamb

We started the trail at Moore Haven, Alvin Ward Park. We headed toward Lake Harbor but there was construction after 11 miles so we had to turn back. The ride there was beautiful. We were up on the levee road with waterways on both sides. The trail was absolutely flat with no elevation. There was a variety of birds to be seen along with alligators. There is no shade so put your sunscreen on and take plenty of water. We really enjoyed this ride and wish we could’ve made it all the way to Lake Harbor.

Pompano Airpark Bike Trail

Very nice for a small-ish trail

January, 2020 by stvatandem

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.

Bluegill Trail

Paved Portion

January, 2020 by ffemtchild

Not a fan of the trail from PGA to Indiantown all rocks however I ride from PGA to the Beeline almost 3 times a week. I live in PGA National and go from there west to the trail and end at the Beeline and back it’s 10 miles round trip.

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST)

LOST Trail

January, 2020 by bonnie.smith_tl

Wasn’t exactly what we thought but was OK. Paved sections were nice but gravel parts can get tough. My wife and I both got flats on an all day ride. We have never both went flat and ran into another couple who had a flat as well. Not sure why or what caused them but both had small needle point punctures in a few places. The lake is not what we expected as you ride on top of a berm and your few is mainly weeds and saw grass. There are parts of the trail that take you well away from the lake as well.Was an OK ride but not one I’d drive to just to do,

El Rio Trail

great trail

March, 2019 by ramani108

I love this trail and feel really safe while running it. The only advise I could give is to bring water, as the sections of open road really leave you exposed to the sun. There are different entry points on to the trail and the markers are visible.

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST)

Good experience today

March, 2019 by flmark

The number of negative reviews had me apprehensive, but I wanted to give it a try since I live about 70 miles from Clewiston on the Gulf Coast. I am writing in part because no one seems to be writing anything positive. Today, I did the trail from Moore Haven to Lake Harbor, about 20 miles. Except for one screwy detour in Clewiston (someone spray painted ‘LOST’ on the pavement to show how to get around some very stupid fencing), the journey was a pleasant one. This section is paved. The most important thing to note is that this is the best way to see Lake ‘O’, because you are elevated 20-30 feet above the Lake as you traverse the top of the dike. Lake ‘O’ is not a conventional lake, with lots of tall vegetation and no shoreline. When you drive by car (or boat along the Rim Canal), you see nothing to speak of- just the dike and tall vegetation. With the elevation, you can see over that vegetation. I saw plenty of birds and probably a hundred alligators (safely down below the path!) This path does not get enough good press. The pavement was smooth and pleasant. Of course, you have zero chance for shade, so be prepared for that. I will be trying out all the paved sections first and then I’ll take my chances on the rest of it.

Cypress Creek Greenway

East of Fern Forest Park

January, 2019 by normanbowers

The trail east of Fern Forest Park to the beach is really a sidewalk. The sidewalk is just 5 ft. wide but not much pedestrian or bike traffic. It is well signed except along Atlantic Blvd. Atlantic Blvd. is busy , so I took the streets one and two blocks north of Atlantic, very little traffic. Restrooms and water at the beach, but no other place on this section of trail.

Cypress Creek Greenway

Borderline Boring

January, 2019 by rwjoslyn

I enjoyed riding on the trail despite having to cross busy roads. There are pedestrian cross walks, though, and for the most part the motorists yielded to the bikers and walkers as they should.

I did find the trail rather boring as far as the scenery. And what can we say about those unkempt backyards full of debris/trash? But as far as the actual concrete trail goes, I found it to be very accommodating to both cyclists and pedestrians.

I would ride the trail again!

Glades Road Path

thumbs down

December, 2018 by judi.perejil

Noisy, dirty, little greenery, and downright dangerous

Palmetto Park Road Path

construction alert

December, 2018 by judi.perejil

Beautiful urban trail but currently lots of construction along the path at the I-95 junction and west of Military almost all the way to 441.
