M-Path Trail

not that bad

August, 2018 by agelrud

Good for exercise or commute / use the train. Not for “family fun”

Hiatus Road Greenway

Nice Trail

July, 2018 by sequirah

For a city trail, this one is pretty good. I rode it on 7/22/18 .At first the scenery is just so-so but after the crossing at Oakland Park Blvd. it improves a lot. Very clean, with trees along the way if you need a break from the sun. Lots of large iguanas along the canal on the left going south, and there's no shortage of ducks. Some upscale homes to see on the right. The pavement is very smooth, very tight seams... you don't feel them at all. This is Florida, flat as a pancake... you won't get beautiful mountain scenery or anything like that, so my rating takes into consideration that this is a trail running through populated areas. The trail was not very heavily trafficked though. Very nice, all things considered.

Linear Park Trail

More like riding on a sidewalk than riding a trail

February, 2018 by rgprints

Very pleasant ride, but the trail is actually more like the Orange Ave sidewalk. Orange Ave itself has very little traffic. Not so for some of the cross streets. Signals for some of the busy streets are not at Orange Ave, and you have to go left or right for up to a few 100 ft to get to the crosswalk. Signal delays can be long. Trail was clean and well maintained. Public bathrooms at Davy town hall are clean and easily accessible from trail. Pretty and rustic buildings, too.

Old Cutler Trail

About as good as it gets in Miami

January, 2018 by forotondo

Nice trail overall that goes through some great neighborhoods. It’s a little noisy as Cutler is a very busy street, but at least one is safely on the path. I’m from the Northeast and hate riding the streets in Miami since drivers are very distracted here and not respectful of bikers compared to other parts of the country. This trail is a good way to still enjoy cycling here. I would recommend a ride to the Pinecrest farmers market on Sundays. There’s a lot of great street food there!

New River Greenway

Not a bad trail (how it compares to others remains to be seen)

November, 2017 by womey

This trail is convenient since, if nearby Markham park (on the western end) is closed, bikers still have an option. Mentioned by others, the downside of this trail is the periodic intersections with drivers along SR 84 and the long waits associated with traffic signal changes. I even had one waiting driver honk at me today because I was not crossing the road. I then pointed at 'my' signal which she then realized was also red (as she began batting her head once realizing her mistake). Avoid the drivers (especially the ones that can make a left in front of you from behind) and be extra cautious at the (supposedly) safer pedestrian cross-walks. It's at those locations where you may find drivers speed up in order to beat a changing light (leaving you flatter than a pancake).

Nice trail, but...

May, 2017 by mlcbear

As pretty much everyone else stated, the trail itself is nice. It was late morning till noon by the time we returned. The trail was still shaded on the north side. We rode up the trail along the canal a little ways north. It would be nice to ride farther. Once you get far enough west , away from the intersections, you can get moving ,but the crossings are a bear. At one crossing we had the walk sign ,yet as we crossed the cars kept turning right and we looked back and saw they also had a green arrow ,something was out of sync. I think my husband got tired of hearing me say that they need to build pedestrian bridges over these intersections !!! Maybe cyclists need to come together and raise some of the money to help with that.

Every 10 minutes had to stop and navigate through super busy intersections, I'll never come here again. Even had to ride in the shoulder of the highway for five minutes and one text, cars going by doing 70 not good

Hiatus Road Greenway

Happiness

May, 2017 by hrubin411

When I decided to start walking again as my body started to heal from Epstein-Barr virus I discovered they put this path down across the street from my house basically. I used to work Hiatus Road before any work was done then it got obliterated by a new road and a lot of trees. Now I take my daily power walk on the greenway and I'm doing over seven miles total daily. It's a very peaceful path with lots of nature to experience, wide open and welcoming. Plus, I almost see no one.

Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail

Cycling in the Tropics of the Keys

April, 2017 by jimklepzig

My wife and I took the trip together and really enjoyed it. We started at Key Largo by parking our vehicle (free of charge with advance arrangements) at the Key Largo Chamber of Commerce/Visitor's Center. We unloaded our bikes here and started at 6 AM pedaling south from mile marker 106. We were in Key West at 4 PM. Other than a few blinding rainstorms, the trip was uneventful. We enjoyed an extra day and night in Key West, then headed north. Knowing that wind conditions are tougher going north, we planned the return trip in 2 days - smart planning! 50 miles into the 20-25 mph winds was all we wanted to tackle in one day. All along the way, you'll find great little restaurants, shops, etc. On the way north, we decided not to tempt our fate a second time on the 7 mile bridge. Here's a secret...the Lower Keys has a bus service with stops scattered all throughout the Keys. Buses have bike racks on them, and for just a few bucks you can put your bike on the bus and ride across the 7 mile bridge, or through any other areas that you wish not to bike. One more tip...we took a long time in advance studying Google Earth satellite and street views to get a good idea of what we were up against. Very good tool to help you see the bike path, bridges, etc.

I was pleased to also see a bit of construction going on as well on the bridges. Yes, several of the bridges are closed as other posts have pointed out, but it's all about finding the funds for these infrastructure projects. I will look forward to the day when the trail is complete and bikers can be totally separate from traffic.

All in all, it was a great 212 mile trip (less 10 miles on the bus!)...if you like biking in a tropical environment, this may be the trail for you.
