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.
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!!!
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.
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.
I went rollerblading on this trail today and I loved how clean and quiet it was.
First and foremost I would like to thank the employees responsible for maintaining the Snake Creek Trail.
One of the best exercises we can do as retirees is walking and I try to do as much as possible. It’s all good until we reach Miami Gardens Dr (183 St) the routine is to walk along side the bridge and return on the other side of the canal; that is the part that makes me cringe. The bridge does not have a protective barrier between traffic and pedestrian/bike rider. If a driver were to get distracted there is absolutely nothing in the way between him and me. Maybe it wouldn’t matter but then maybe it would .
If this is a legitimate concern and it’s not your pervue then who?
I took pictures of what I mean but I’m a newby here can’t see how to send.
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.
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!
Noisy, dirty, little greenery, and downright dangerous
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.
