The Turnpike Trail is a paved hike and bike pathway located in Doral, a suburb of Miami. The trail runs alongside a canal, which parallels NW 117th Avenue, which in turn runs parallel to the Ronald Reagan Turnpike that lends the trail its name. The paved trail begins on 58th Street, where the Dressels Dairy Trail leaves off, and continues south along the canal. The grassy margin of the trail is well-landscaped, and trees line much of the path. Passing by residential neighborhoods and local parks like the Trails and Tails dog park, as well as commercial areas and the Miami-Dade College west campus, the Turnpike Trail serves as both a recreational and commuting path.
About two miles in, at Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church, the trail pivots eastward, along 25th Street/ PBA Memorial Boulevard, continuing until it meets with the Beacon Trail at 107th Avenue. The Beacon Trail continues along 25th Street to NW 97th Avenue.
Note that there are several street crossings on the Turnpike Trail route. The 41st Street crossing is particularly wide. While the crosswalks are marked, please use caution at these intersections.
You may be able to find parking at the north end of the trail at Doral Meadows Park (11555 NW 58th St, Doral), located across 58th Street from the start of the trail. Another option is to park at Trails and Tails Park, located at 11645 NW 50th St, Doral. Take the Greenway Trail towards NW117th Avenue to approach the Turnpike Trail.
