Summary:
This is the best trail in SE Florida. Lots of fun and fast if you want it to be. The folks who maintain it have put a lot of love into it and it shows. It is an absolute blast if you can ride it at night.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Markham, Quiet Waters, Virginia Key, West Delray Regional park

Summary:
Great flow, great workout. Tons of fast uphills and downhills. Considering So Florida is FLAT, these are awesome man-made trails. Not the prettiest sites...but the challenge is amazing.

Single track. Constantly expanding.

Direction change (reverse) is only about 2 times a year. The LaRue bros are amazing at trail maintenance. The rest of the park is extremely nice too (Urban jungle becomes paradise once in this huge park).

Rental bike are usually available and are pretty solid.

Excellent FB Page too: Amelia Earhart Mountain Bike club: Also, try where to crank.

I don't think I'd come to SoFlo solely for a MTB trip, but def worth dedicating a day or so to it. October through June is PERFECT weather so maybe you should!

Also, Amelia is the best place to race IMO

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Virginia Key / Key Biscayne. Keep in mind once again, SoFlo is an urban jungle. VK is paradise if you don't live in the sticks where MTB trails are plentiful!

Summary:
I have started riding these trails about 9-10 years ago. At the time, the trails were far from perfect. I would guess 8 ago, the In-Da-House Crew started improving the trails. Then I quit riding because of school. Now, I just started getting back into the about 2 months ago. I'm not sure who keeps the trails maintained, but they are doing a great job!

These trails are for every type of rider. One thing that is a love/hate thing is about every Month they switch the direction of the trails. It makes it seem like two different types of trails. I would recommend these trails to EVERYONE! Its a great place with great people.

Also, if you don't own a bike, or you want to take a friend out there, and you nor they have another bike, I believe every Sat. and Sun. they rent bikes. Cheap ones, but it gets the job done.

Summary:
I love this park. There is plenty of flow throughout the entire process. This park allows you to go FAST without worrying too much about wiping out. There is plenty of challenge with lots of bypasses if for some reason you aren't up to it. I recommend this park to everyone from beginners to advanced riders.
