Neighborhood trails don’t come much nicer than the Snake Creek Trail in southeast Florida. The paved 6.5-mile route offers an easy and level riding experience along a pleasant, palm-tree-dotted canal connecting North Miami Beach and Miami Gardens. Shopping areas, restaurants, several schools, and workplaces are located just off the trail making it an important transportation corridor.
Trailside amenities include small parks, picnic shelters, and fitness stations. The Snake Creek Canal itself, although primarily for flood control, is also used for fishing, kayaking, canoeing and jet skiing out to the Biscayne Bay.
The trail may one day stretch 18 miles. A westward extension is being studied to take the trail past Florida’s Turnpike, providing a convenient and traffic-free way to reach the Sun Life Stadium (home of the Miami Dolphins) and longer-term plans call for continuing it still farther west to US 27. An eastern extension would take the trail to Biscayne Boulevard and beyond as soon as a way to get over or under the major thoroughfare is worked out.
Parking is available at North Miami Beach Public Library (1601 NE 164th Street) and Schreiber Promenade (NE 172nd Street and South Glades Drive).
