Quiet Waters - Phoenix

Average Rating:    (3.83 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 12

Single track trails with varying skill levels. Park next to the Ski Rixen. There is a Beginner level warmup track that leads you from the parking lot to the main trail head. All intermediate trails are accessed thru a gate. To ride you [b]MUST[/b} have a tag. Tags can be acquired at the front/main office (they will require you watch a short video for liability reasons). If you are caught on the trail without a tag the Park can charge you with trespassing.

The trail is ALL NEW rising from the dust of devastation. After Hurricane Wilma the forest was destroyed. The County and State came in and cleared the land and built some small elevation features. Trees and bushes have been planted and now need time to grow back into a forest. The park has given us a blank canvas. The trail is a work in progress and will be for several years.

Currently there is approx. 4 miles of trail with more on the way. Workdays are the 2nd and 4th Saturday every month - come join the effort to rebuild this trail.

Summary:
This trail system keeps getting better. I have been going there since they re-opened it a number of years ago after the hurricane destruction, and it really has evolved. New trails are added periodically (with varying success) that are adding length and new challenges. There are some pretty technical aspects and some parts that really do flow pretty well for short distances. My only complaints arise when sand pits arise in the dry season, where limestone gravel gets too loose in some places, and where the trail edges are collapsing on some curves. But these are maintenance issues and if more of us got out there and helped (including me) maybe we could handle some of these issues. Respect to the folks out there resurrecting this beast.

Recommended Route:
Just ride it all, there isn't so much trail that you shouldn't.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Markham Park, Amelia Earhardt

Summary:
This trail has really come along well and is being worked on often. There's some good technical stuff, some good up and downs, and a few decent expert areas. I noticed last weekend some more expert stuff being added. Good cardio workout as well. It will never be the old Quiet Waters but I think the folks should be saluted for making it what it is now and i would ride it anytime.

Recommended Route:
Get on and go, but I don't park at the main parking lot, I park at the lot closer to the main trailhead.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Markham Park and Amelia Earhart are my other two favorites around SoFlo.

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(sunrise)

various levies through out south fl

Summary:
I just road this trail yesterday for the first time in about 6 months. The trail is a lot of fun. I like the short steep up and downs and all the 180 degree turns. The loop is about 4 miles. It is another place to ride in South Fla and it provides some variety.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Markham, Dyer Park, Oleta, Pinecrest

Summary:
This is a rolling single track around lakeside trails with a nice flow and depending on the rider ability it is quite challenging. If you are in SoFla with your mtn bike give these trails a pedal.......you won't be disappointed. Remember, in Florida we may not have mountains but what we do have is the next best thing.

Recommended Route:
Park by the Ski Rixen pavilion and head and take the single track warmup to the main trail head 1/4 mile in. Follow the directional signs. Wear a helmet and check at the park office for an access pass (free). Smile and enjoy the ride.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Markham Park (Sunrise), Oleta River (Miami), Amelia Aerhart (Hialeah)
