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!!!
We just rode from Key Largo to key Wat and has a great ride. The only reason I do not give the trail 5 stars is that there is a good deal of hurricane related impact on the trail and not many good sources to see just where this impact is. The good news is that there is always the option of riding on the Overseas Highway Bike Path. If you don't mind being on the road, it is excellent. Some of the off Highway paths are sensational. There are dedicated channel bike bridges, but many are not open. Be sure to look at signs for "no outlet" before you cross one of these bridges. The Channel 5 bike bridge does NOT go through. I found ample space on the side of the road for biking on the bridges. Some in our party did not. The 7 mile bridge is both exhilarating and terrifying. Uber is a viable option for the weak at heart. There is a lot of debris on the paths. Our group had 4 nail related flat tires. The amenities are great along the way and there are bike shops along the way. Riding from Key West to Key Largo, the head wind was a factor. We all agreed that we would do the trail again.
We started at the North End near the Commodore Trail entrance and rode south. There are a dozen or more free-parking spots around the circle. The trail on this end is bumpy due to large tree roots, which slows you down. Once you pass Matheson Park, (the Trail goes into/thru the park for about 2-3 blocks distance, turn into the park, stay to the right, and pick up the trail on the right), after you exit from the park you must cross the road (we missed the sign) then turn right, into a gated community onto Snapper Lane/105th Street. Having missed the trail sign, we backtracked, then stopped at the gate house to asked the gate keeper if she knew where the Old Cutler Trail was. She said she is asked that question "all the time", then directed us thru the gate she opened for us, told us to go straight for a quarter mile, then on the right, go thru an opening in the black fence where the trail resumes. From then on the trail (is very well marked) has less shade the further you go, but the surface is smooth. It crosses several intersections. with heavy road traffic. Maybe because it was a Sunday, there were lots of cars, trucks pulling boats, jet skis, etc. It was getting late (6pm) so we turned around about a mile or two from the end, stopping at a shopping center to get something to eat/drink. Overall, trail was nice, we felt safe the whole time, you pass thru some upscale neighborhoods, you never felt isolated, and if you stop at Matheson Park for awhile, you can rent a kayak or paddle board or swim. Made for a nice afternoon to cycle the trail and get some exercise, but i doubt this was a former "rail" converted to a "trail". If you are looking to cover some distance, ride to get your heart rate up, and be alone with mother nature, this would not meet that goal. The trail seems more like a shared bike/walk trail that connects all the neighborhoods along Cutler Road.
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.
I went rollerblading on this trail today and I loved how clean and quiet it was.
Not sure if this trail is closed but we tried locating on both ends by 9336 and by manatee bay no luck
Lots of iguanas and ducks,signs that have crocodile on them and says do not feed wildlife,there should be some kind of fence.In 4.5 miles i saw only 3 cyclists.Wont be coming again as i dont like reptiles.
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.
This is a nice ride with views of ocean and Miami skyline. Plenty of parking at the beaches and parks. Much of the trail is along the shoulder, but in the rural areas it is double lined for vehicle traffic and the bike lane is painted green, pretty cool.
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!
My boyfriend and I went out today and really enjoyed the first several miles. We spotted over 60 iguanas and tons of ducks and really enjoyed the ride. After about 5 miles though, trash starts becoming more and more prevalent, and the neighborhood starts getting worse. At one point the water was completely covered with sludge and trash. I think we’d do the nicer half again, but I don’t think this will be one that we use for a through ride.
