We started the trail at Moore Haven, Alvin Ward Park. We headed toward Lake Harbor but there was construction after 11 miles so we had to turn back. The ride there was beautiful. We were up on the levee road with waterways on both sides. The trail was absolutely flat with no elevation. There was a variety of birds to be seen along with alligators. There is no shade so put your sunscreen on and take plenty of water. We really enjoyed this ride and wish we could’ve made it all the way to Lake Harbor.
My wife and I, along with other tandem riding friends, rode this trail twice – first Clockwise, then C-Clockwise. Pavement is pretty smooth – no rough spots to speak of. Very few cross roads – most aren’t busy. We parked by the Dog Park – Free parking and some spaces are shaded by trees. Restrooms near the entrance are pretty well kept. We even had a chance to see the Goodyear Blimp – probably prepping for the Superbowl this coming weekend.
Not a fan of the trail from PGA to Indiantown all rocks however I ride from PGA to the Beeline almost 3 times a week. I live in PGA National and go from there west to the trail and end at the Beeline and back it’s 10 miles round trip.
Wasn’t exactly what we thought but was OK. Paved sections were nice but gravel parts can get tough. My wife and I both got flats on an all day ride. We have never both went flat and ran into another couple who had a flat as well. Not sure why or what caused them but both had small needle point punctures in a few places. The lake is not what we expected as you ride on top of a berm and your few is mainly weeds and saw grass. There are parts of the trail that take you well away from the lake as well.Was an OK ride but not one I’d drive to just to do,
I entered a park by Hiatus Rd into a nature preserve. Followed the path. Be careful there was horse shot on the path that you have to dodge as you proceed west. Then you have to navigate a lot of side streets until you make it to Vista Views Park...which has a nice bike path. There are no shoulders along the side street roads so you need to be careful. My avg speed was slow because you are riding sidewalks.
Overall I didn’t like the trail. I started at the west end in Tamarac in a nice park. As you go more East it gets uglier scenery. Also crossing the streets is a hassle as you have to go left or right to cross. And the streets can get pretty busy. As you approach the turnpike, then you have to ride on roads and I turned around by then. I just didn’t feel inspired by this path.
This was the day I was going to do the complete greenway, including both disconnected sections. I never got on the east section because the end point was Rt. 84 and Anglers, and as I pedaled up 84, I didn't see an Anglers intersection. I knew I had missed it by the time I got to 441, but what the hell, I kept going. Bad choice, because that's when 84 turned into a superhighway with ginormous trucks roaring by at 80 mph. I finally made it to University and got on the west section, which I was already familiar with. Only when you get maybe a mile past Flamingo, you hit construction which includes no more access to the greenway. I'm again going up 84, this time on the south side against the traffic. More racing cars and apoplectic trucks. Did make it to Markham at last, but by then I was so tuckered I only did one lap. I think I'll wait a few months before trying again.
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!!!
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.
The number of negative reviews had me apprehensive, but I wanted to give it a try since I live about 70 miles from Clewiston on the Gulf Coast. I am writing in part because no one seems to be writing anything positive. Today, I did the trail from Moore Haven to Lake Harbor, about 20 miles. Except for one screwy detour in Clewiston (someone spray painted ‘LOST’ on the pavement to show how to get around some very stupid fencing), the journey was a pleasant one. This section is paved. The most important thing to note is that this is the best way to see Lake ‘O’, because you are elevated 20-30 feet above the Lake as you traverse the top of the dike. Lake ‘O’ is not a conventional lake, with lots of tall vegetation and no shoreline. When you drive by car (or boat along the Rim Canal), you see nothing to speak of- just the dike and tall vegetation. With the elevation, you can see over that vegetation. I saw plenty of birds and probably a hundred alligators (safely down below the path!) This path does not get enough good press. The pavement was smooth and pleasant. Of course, you have zero chance for shade, so be prepared for that. I will be trying out all the paved sections first and then I’ll take my chances on the rest of it.
I went rollerblading on this trail today and I loved how clean and quiet it was.
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.
