Did the path for the first time today and it’s a good workout (a little over ten miles round trip) with nice varying scenery — the Intercoastal, beach, golf courses, condos, etc. Going south there is a path thats pretty wide and comfortably accommodates pedestrians and cyclists; going back north just a regular bike lane. Parking across from Red Reef in the metered lot is a cheaper option.
Nice. Quiet, clean and safe. I parked on the south end per the instructions and it was about 5.6 miles each way.
Just biked El Rio for the first time and loved it! Extremely well marked, paved, with very few street crossings and those that are there have crosswalks. Pretty and varying scenery. The way the path goes under a few underpasses and the train tracks is really cool. We folllowed others’ advice to park at Delray Oaks Nature Area which was perfect — just a couple blocks from the northern trailhead.
This is a lovely idea, high quality concrete trail bed. However, this path is interrupted every several miles by major high volume road interchanges. Get off and carry bike over high curb busy streets. That’s after figuring out where to park. Cypress canal is some kind of drainage ditch, there are pumping stations along its route, ‘nuff said. Serious bikers should avoid this nonsense. Fine for walking (but must walk to crosswalks to get across busy streets) if objective is long walk.
Too many intersections, you ride a mile then need too cross abustle intersection. Construction caused us to stop and restart in another area. Disappointing
Road 23 miles today, path is narrow and intersections are busy but doable. It was a beautiful December day.
Great trail for running, inline skating and casual biking. I run on this trail often and combine it with other dedicated bike paths in the city on my hybrid bike. The city has done its best to bypass the busy Yamato Rd intersection and the others at Spanish River Blvd and Clint Moore are manageable. The south end borders FAU which is usually a good place to bike. In the middle you can take a detour at the train station and head over to De Hornle Park and the Library for some additional biking. On the north end there’s Yamato Scrub for some great trail running and I like to add to my workout by utilizing the wide shoulders on the Clint Moore I-95 overpass for some bike hill climbs
I would say very few people have been on this trail as much as I have. It is my favorite running trail. I would use it for slow, casual biking but there are good bike paths in the shoulder of A1A if you’re trying to generate some speed. From Spanish River Blvd to Palmetto Rd and back is about a 5 mile run. Depending on your fitness, there’s a good wide path from the Deerfield Beach border all the way to Atlantic Blvd in Delray Beach.
We enjoyed the trail.
I have just returned home after completing the 106 miles from Key Largo to Key West. After reading some of the reviews here I was a bit concerned with making this trip. While I agree that there are a number of surfaces you ride along the way that include sidewalks, trails, and roads, I found all quite manageable and safe. There is debris in spots especially on bridges but nothing more than I find riding my local roads. If you haven’t ridden on busy roads prior this probably is not the trip for you. We woke up early and crossed the Seven Mile Bridge around 7 am on a Friday and traffic wasn’t too bad. There is a big enough shoulder that you can maneuver around debris and still be safe. In the end The trail exceeded my expectations and I look forward to doing this trip again in January.
It was great riding this trail in family. At the end you can find a Publix or a Plaza, and take a break there. Then go back. We park at the point where the App says. We started in the morning, so we lunch subs from Publix at the end of the trail. We saw many iguanas, turtles, ducks, birds, and many others animals. You can take a break any time you want under the trees. Maybe this is not a trail for super riders, but it is nice for a family ride.
Did the entire trail this past Saturday (10/17) and it all went pretty well. Didn’t see much wildlife unfortunately. However do wear long pants and sleeves as the horse fly’s were all over us. Made for some frustration.
