Snapper Creek

Average Rating:    (2.06 of 5)

No. of Reviews: 36

Alot of interlocking trails. There is all sort of riding, wooded, sandy, coral, roots, mud, and gravel. Oh yeah I thought I might tell you there is also four steep drop offs that are cool. And if you bring your fishing rod's you may as well catch a snapper or two. These are not trails for beginers. They are sort off hard. But hey what the heck, NO PAIN,NO GLORY. SEE YOU THERE, (Carlman65@hotmail.com)

Summary:
the Snapper Creek trail no longer exists. The city decided to remove all the australian pines and then brought buldozers to flatten the entire trail like a pancake! Sad very sad. You can still ride parallel to the canal all the way to the bay, but it's just a 1/2 mile flat, sandy trail with no tree cover and no more fun turns or even a small hill to climb. The trail has basically been killed.
Thank you City of Miami, one more cool ride gone.

Summary:
this trail is actually closed, the y finally started doing construction on it a couple of months ago, i never found it to be a very good trail as you are competeing with the paintballers for the area & are worried of getting shot! its been a long time since the rest of the trails were open but it was a nice ride, before the construction it was relegated to just the outside fire road which pretty much sucked but was worth going to the end to get a beautiful view of biscayne bay & the fishing was great there too

Summary:
Bad news about the Snapper Creek trail. County workers are in the process of bulldosing that whole area down to the limestone. I passed by the other day and all the trees are gone and big metal dinosaurs took over with other plans for the area. I couldn't believe what I saw. Very sad.

Recommended Route:
Directions to an alternate trail a mile away....Old Cutler Road to Matheson Hammocks Park street light and make left. If you go in the park by car, park immediately on your left. Then cross the parking area and go to the far right side of the park passed the the picnic area just before the property line to Fairchild Tropical Gardens next door. between the lake you will find the trail about 2 miles in length that takes you back to the bay.

Other recommended trails in the same area:
Matheson Hammocks Park a mile north of Snapper Creek has a trail similar in length but lacks the huge drops Snapper Creek had. Beware of mosquitos, blue crabs, hikers and fallen trees from passed hurricanes. There are 2 trails in the same park, the one on the left near the entrance is paved and the one on the right passed the picnic areas is a mix of pine needles, dirt, sand, and limestone. It's only a couple of miles at the most and during hight tide you will run into a roadblock of water about a foot or more deep.
