I am amazed this can be called a trail or Greenway. It is miles of blazing sun, no green below or above, next to heavily trafficked fast moving roads. I see sad hot workers commuting on this by necessity not fun.
Too many street crossings on busy roads I got hit by a car that ran a red light
After striking out at the Moore Haven and Clewiston sites (closed), we went to Belle Glade and road up to Pahoke. When this trail is finished it will be magnificent!
Talked to Clewiston COC. They say that the trail is open in Belle Glade. We’ll check it out tomorrow.
-Started at Moore Haven- closed - Drove down to Clewiston- closed No one seems to know what the plan is. Tried Clewiston Chamber of Commerce- no answer
It's like a big sidewalk in that you have so many pedestrians that you have to watch out for because they don't bother to stay to the right. Also, I didn't like that the trail is so bumpy. I think you're better off just using the bike lane which is pretty close by, although that is kind of bumpy as well. One plus is that you can stop by Gumbo Limbo Nature Center or check out the boardwalk even though bikes are probably not allowed on it.
The trail has a good paved surface, and it's great if you can have a tailwind at your back. I don't like that you have major roads to cross like Lyons road, Powerline Road, and Military Trail. A lot of drivers don't really pay attention to their surroundings, so don't be surprised if someone , who is making a turn, cuts in front of you as you're riding on the trail. You have to have your head on a swivel, and make sure that you're noticed.
So far , 9/25/21, from my own personal experience, the longest stretch of paved trail that you can ride on without being blocked is from Port Mayaca to Taylor Creek. Which is about 19 miles. Recently, I got on the trail at South Bay. I could only pedal a very limited distance before the paved part ran out or the path was blocked because of construction. As other people have stated, you might want to bring plenty of water and sunscreen.
I pedaled from Port Mayaca to Taylor creek. The good is that part it was well paved, and I didn't have to contend with traffic. Also, I saw a pair of grey foxes. The bad part is you can't go any further on the trail at Taylor Creek. I couldn't just follow the road back to 441 because they had a chain link fence there that was locked with no way around. I had to go south on the trail to find a way over to the highway to get water. To make my way back to the trail, I had to get past this other gate that had a high curb and locks. The way they make it a big hassle to get to the road from the trail and vice versa seems like someone doesn't like cyclists? I understand having gates to keep cars off of the trail, but why are they making it hard for cyclists?
If you're looking for a place to inline skate in Pompano Beach this is just... ok. The trail is smooth pavement on the Southern and Western sides - pretty nice for skating. The North and East sides - not so much. The pavement is rougher with a fair amount of debris, particularly on the east side. Its not unskateable but - you definitely need to take it slow and you wonder how your wheels and bearings are holding up the whole time.
I recommend sticking to the south and west legs and just doubling back when you get to the corner. It's pretty obvious where the rough stuff starts.
I parked my car in the Costco parking lot, and rode my bike to the trail from there. There were no major intersection to be crossed. Instead, the road crossings were on less busy parts. The trail is nice, but there a few parts with tree roots making the asphalt bulge a bit. The iguanas were pretty cool to observe even though I do believe they're an invasive species. There are some bridges you can go under, but you may want to be careful when it gets late because it's hard to see under them. Also, there was a sign warning that part could become flooded. So far, I would say it's a nice ride.
I have been using this trail for about 3 months only on the weekends. It is good for bike training, but in the section of US-1 the pavement is not in good condition. I hope they fix it soon.
