Hi I just biked the trail today and the segment at Yamato and near trirail that wasn’t completed - as stated in previous posts- is very nearly completed. In fact , I biked it through the couple barrels that were there warning Not to pass. But it is paved. I passed fine. I assume it’s awaiting final inspection so that’s why it’s not officially open. But overall trail in general is smooth to bike on, and I enjoy the views along the way.
Ride this trail every morning. On a warm day after a cool night, lots of birds and big iguanas north of Yamato. The Yamato crossing was precarious but by observation the tunnel under the road seems finished (still some barrels there on Mar 18). This will make the almost 5 mile run very nice. I'd park at Costco, go around the back and catch the beginning (north end).
Nice trail overall, the crossings, I hope they can improve on. A bridge a tunnel or a direct path would be nice. The scenery was beautiful as it was my first time. It was a cool morning so not much Iguanas, thank goodness. I did not make the connect past Lyons rd, more signage would be nice. I looked at the map but it didnt work out as planned, I was tired anyway, so I just headed back home. If they could add better crossings, improve the Lyons road connect and add more rest stops, it’ll be perfect. 8/10 as is.
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.
We got really frustrated driving around the University looking for guest parking and almost gave up. Ended up parking across Glades in a plaza. The instructions on how to cross Yamato are not clear at all. The trail information suggest you go toward the Boca train station and then you have to figure it out. Actually the only way to cross the train tracks is to use the station elevator and then there is more confusion again. Clearer instructions would be appreciated.
It is a nice trail along the canal with plenty of wildlife activity. The iguanas are quite entertaining. We enjoyed it and needed to let off some steam after the parking fiasco.
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!
Can Scott do
Nice ride, lots of creatures to see out and about. Will be perfect when the Yamato crossing is done, thats a bit precarious. Where is the Guest Parking at FAU? We only saw meters (is it that??) and permit parking.
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).
its a very short ride and i was expecting that because it says so in the description but what they dont say is half of the path is on wood deck and cobblestone, it caused $180 worth of Damage to my bike.
Fun to see people, beach and more. Concrete but cute ride.
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.
