El Rio Trail

Great Walking Trail

If you have three to four hours and great sunblock, this trail is amazing to walk the whole way. Bring plenty of water! Looking forward to doing it on the bike.

Enjoyable ride

June, 2020 by ms.suzanscott

Nice wide trail west of Fern Forest Park, a little buggy this time a year. We saw tons of iguanas, some ducks and a couple of baby owls. I do it again when the weather is cooler¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿¿

El Rio Trail

A good route for in-line skating

May, 2020 by johnsonlydia

I ride with inline skates, and I’d say the trail was an 8 out of 10 for inline skating. It is such a pretty ride that is a great early morning ride for biking, skating, running, and walking. The pavement is smooth and clean, and there is a lot of flora and fauna to observe along all parts of the trail. There are a few intersections to cross but all have pedestrian-friendly crosswalks and lights. You get to ride through multiple tunnels that take you under I-95. I felt very safe the entire time and saw many others who were walking, running and biking solo. The only drawback was the section just north of Congress; the pavement was buckling and uneven and needed repaving, which makes it slow going for skating but would be no problem for biking. There are a few intersections to cross but all have pedestrian-friendly crosswalks and lights. A great way to start the day - just make sure to go early because Boca gets hot!

El Rio Trail

Great Ride!!

May, 2020 by wendyking323

My husband and I loved this path! He is 65 and I am 61 and we like a casual pace to enjoy the scenery and this was just that! Very flat, plenty of benches a long the way if you need to rest! The iguanas were amazing! We really enjoyed it and can’t wait to ride again!

El Rio Trail

Much Improved

April, 2020 by wendyjhoward

Nice trail along FAU campus and north. The trail has improved quite a bit over the last year, including a bike repair station by the Yamato Rd train station. Other improvements include tunnels under major roads. The northern part of the trail is somewhat narrow. But overall, worthwhile.

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST)

High marks for Lake "O" Trail

April, 2020 by thom11187

Parked at the Port Mayaca lock area right off of 441 S. and easily got right on the trail and headed north. Did the 14 miles mentioned in the reviews and it was great--no construction in that area. Well paved path, beautiful scenery on either side, the lake is majestic! Passed 6-7 other bikers over the course of 2 hours, so not well traveled on a weekday or maybe it's the Covid crisis? I plan to go further next time or head south from there and see where that leads. Only reason I can't give it 5 stars is because there are no bathrooms or real shaded areas at all during that stretch so be prepared for that--we had perfect weather, not terribly hot. Maybe it changes in different areas depending on where you are on the lake, if so I'd like to hear about it.

great ride!

It’s a really nice ride, amazing houses and not too much traffic.

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.

Hiatus Road Greenway

Fabulous

March, 2020 by remingtonmargo

This is right in my backyard. It runs North/South along Haitus from Oakland to State Road 84. Then you can go East to University or West all the way to Markum Park. We’ve done 20 miles back and forth on this trail! There’s a couple of intersections you have to cross including Sunrise Blvd. but free and clear overall.

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.
