Dyer Park

Average Rating:    (3.37 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 41

The trail is situated on a 55 ft. elevation abandoned landfill. It is 100% singletrack composed of a crushed stone surface that is one to two feet wide. The rest of the landfill is covered with vegetation. There are some small trees that provide some shade, but most of the ride is in the sun. The trail is approx. 3 1/2 miles long. The trail ascends and decends many times as it goes around the hill. There tends to be some trail erosion after heavy rains, so watch out for those ruts. There is a short practice trail at the top (less than 1/2 mile). This park is pretty unique and offers a great solution for utilizing old landfills.

Summary:
Want some elevation (great climbing and speedy downhill) in South Florida....And how about some single track with some great flow?
YOU GOT IT!
The Park has two trails, The Hill Trail and The Perimeter Trail.
I rate it a 5 for S. Florida riding– if this trail was in Utah it would be a 3.


The Hill is on an old landfill...don't let that scare you. It doesn’t smell!!!! Also as a side-note: The parks location compared to the 'new' landfill across the turnpike is perfect. The wind VERY RARELY is ever out of the SW so only like 5% of the time is there ever a problem! Thank God!!!

I lived out in Utah for 5 years so I’m a little partial.....and like to climb and then be rewarded with some fun downhill. I’m the Volunteer Coordinator for the Hill trail and we've done lots of work… building berms to make the trail even faster! I don’t think you can find any better climbing/downhill in S Florida! The Perimeter is super-fun as well. There are only a few instances where you have to slow down much. It's some great cross-country with slight elevation change as well. Hill - 2.5 miles. Perimeter - 5 miles.



Recommended Route:
Favorite Route: In the back of the park, park by the soccer fields. You'll notice a paved walkway up the hill. Climb/Ride up the walkway. Once at the top, drop into the trail to the LEFT....on the second downhill, the trail splits, go left and follow the fire-road around the canal. Once on the other side of the canal, Drop into the Perimeter trail. This will take you all the way around the edge of the park via fun flowing single-track. When you get back to where you entered the Perimeter, head back to the Hill and climb and descend your way around. That about 7.5 miles of good clean fun!

Summary:
Some work has been done building berms on some critical turns of the hill trail, greatly improving flow and speed. Still needs grooming in some areas with larger loose rocks, but overall a challanging fun ride. I think the best hill climbing in south florida, and the trail layout offers a combination of fairly steep switchbacks with some good downhill lines. I like to merge onto the trail on the southwest corner, do a lap and finish on the downhill section where i came on, launching across the sidewalk and continuing on to the perimeter trail. There is also a section halfway around the perimeter trail fhat has some rock obsticles, and an older abandoned bmx section. The bmx section needs some work badly, but has potential to be a fun little run. The perimeter trail is a good mix, offering some root sections, and overall a pretty fast ride.

Summary:
I have only ridden the wooded trail...

The course is tight and with a non-suspension bike..challenging..

However it is an endurance run...and you are left satisfied once you complete the loop.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Jonathan Dickson, new RPB Rec Center trail..I created an entry for it on this website!

Summary:
took a short roadtrip up to this park today for the first time. there's basically 2 trails to ride here. one is in the woods and it's kinda fun, but no ups and downs or jumps or anything. i'd say it's good for practicing your high speed turns and your going between trees. then there's the big landfill hill with a criss-crossing trail all over it with ascents and descents. definitely good for cardio and leg strength training. the place is okay if you're in the area, but i wouldn't make it a destination.

Summary:
Rode this trail for the first time today. My 13yo son and I decided to ride the outer trail since it was very dark and gloomey. We didnt want to get caught in the open during our ride so we figured that the outer trail had way more cover. It was actually a really fun ride. Its very fast, but somewhat technical at the same time. The course is extremely narrow, in fact I had quite a few close calls dodging trees with my shoulders and handlebars and root and stumps with my tires. It was even more interesting after the downpour we got caught in. The ground was quite slipery which made it even more fun. There are a few more intermediate, technical features that you have to look for to give some some practice if you're looking to improve your bike handling skills. There a short root-loop that looks to be freshly cut toward the middle of the course that was very fun. I had to go through 3 times just because it was soo fun. There are several small log obsticles with bypasses for beginners. Also stumbled on what appeared to be a small dual-slalom dirt track that is under construction in a small clearing. It had a steep hill drop in with a few small dirt jumps and some nice berms. Definately had fun with this one for a quick afterwork ride or late weekend ride. Still prefer Jonathan Dickinson more for the technicality level.

Recommended Route:
Outer Ring, starts by the Soccer fields and ends right before the baseball fields....

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Jonathan Dickinson, Quiet Waters, Markam Park
