Summary:
Trail is comming along really well. Just a hair under 6 miles and a fun fast trail. This trail is a great cardio workout trail and has plenty of ups and down. Vegetation hasn't grown all the way back in but it looks great. Nice thing about the trail is you get a breeze, especially along the lake.

Loose rocks, sure, its made out of the lake bottom but its very manageable and its been packed down in mot places really well.

Trail seems really flat because pf lack of large vegetation but its twisty enough and has enough elevation changes. Probably more then the old trail. Once the trees all grow in and takes away your ability to look hundreds of yards, it will be even more exciting.

Seriously. Its becoming a great trail again. I definitely recommend it. Oh it also has a skills training area with stairs, skinnies, bank turn wooden berms, slalom gates, assorted drops and lg overs. Great skills area.

Recommended Route:
Start at entrance by the Ski Rixen. WAtch the signs. Can be hard to tell where the trail continues in some places so pay attention.

Its really one big 6 mile trail versus a bunch of smaller ones like Markham or Oleta.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Markham Park
Oleta

Summary:
Great trail. After the beginner trail they added a great technical section including a huge bank, poles to steer through, ramps, and lots of jumps. In the middle of the park they have added a teeter-totter. The technicality level is great for a person of my age.(14) The aerobic lvl is pretty good too. Im huffing and puffing in the beginner trail(only if u dont take it slow) then it leads you in to a steady pattern.

The only thing i hate is the amount of rocks there is. i hate how your at a good speed gearing up to climb a 15 ft hill and u hit a patch of rocks and loose your momentum. It might just be me (M=mass x velocty) im going fast but i have little mass (i only weigh 115lb's)

Anyway its ultra fun and full of tons of climbs and drops and i would recommend this trail to anyone i know .

Recommended Route:
start at the beginner trail in the parking lot then ride through everything all the way to the back of the park and back.

take the beginner, intermediate, and various expert sections

Other recommended trails in the same area:
-markham park
-various levies through out south fl

Summary:
I was weary of going to ride this trail because i had read some not so great reviews on some websites etc. But i must say the trails were actually great and flowed really well. It was extremely hot tho i must say and with the baby trees still growing id definately go again but when it's cooler. Im not an expert yet but pretty well and i must say that the intermediate was "AMAZING" for me and a hell of a challenge in alot of parts. I'd go as far as saying that some of the intermediate sections were actually borderline expert. Or maybe i steered off intermediate by accident. lol But i highly recommend this park to any of you that have read bad reviews. I wont be suprised if this is one of the top parks in the near future when some of the trees grow back.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Oleta, Markham, Amelia Earheart

Summary:
Quiet Waters is open once again. There are approx. 3.5 miles of Intermediate trail and 1.5 miles of Beginniner trails open. The crew has done a great job with what is available at this time. The hurricane damage is very evident, (i.e. lack of trees) but all-in-all a good flowing trail with some good technical aspects to it. There is one section that runs along a ridge above a lake that I can see many bikes falling into. They'll name this section of trail "Bike Wash" for sure.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Markham Park

Summary:
As prevoiously reported, the entire Park was stripped bare of ALL Non-native plant and tree life. The park for the most part is barren sand except where new trees were planted. The terrain is still there for the most part. The GOOD NEWS is that Broward County Parks has signed a contract for IMBA to design new trails of various levels of difficulty to be started later this fall or winter when everything is white and cold up North. IMBA did a phenominal job up at SANTOS in the North end of FLORIDA. Let's hope and PRAY that this work is started soon. The County is also working on obtaining 2 parcels of land from FlaDOT which would be used to extend the areas designated for mountainbiking and which also have tree cover and plantlife. This Trail System is deeply missed by area riders and the starting and rebuilding cannot start soon enough!

Recommended Route:
It's only a drive by right now! but don't forget to stop by and see the crew at Jim's Bicycles across the street for the latest news.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Oleta in North Miami, Markham in Sunrise, Amelia Earhart in Opa Locka/ Hialeah, Jonathan Dickinson up in Jupiter.
