Review: as if 2013, the trails are running about 7 miles total, if you ride it all, including expert trails. this park has come a long way since Hurricane Wilma destroyed it. then the park or county decided "hey, why not remove the few trees left standing?" so the trails are almost all ynder direct sunlight......and it's hot down here 11 & 1/2 out of the 12 months. all in all, fun trail (being S Florida).

Review: This was my first ever MTB trail, when I was just a wee lad back in the 90's. I wanted to come back and review it because I thought it was excellent for it being in the great flat state of Florida. I am in Virginia now so have some real down hills but I had a blast while I love there.

Review: Great trail for entry level & intermediate level riders like myself. Advanced riders will rate this trail low.

Review: not to bad for a good cardio workout. now up to 7 or 8 miles per lap. nothing crazy difficult. negative, after hurricane Wilma destroyed our South Florida area, the park decided to cut down & remove any trees still standing? I think it was a "non native" thing. regardless, huge mistake.

Review: I consider this my "Home Trail" as I ride here more than anywhere else. Markham, Oleta, and Amelia are better trail systems but are significantly farther to drive for me. Great place to get a good workout in, but not technically difficult.

Review: Some fun runs, but I couldn't tell Where trails start or end. It seemed to just be one trail. Not much elevation so it's all on the rider to generate speed. Good workout though.

Review: While there may be some good riding on this trail, I suggest all Mountain bikers that care for a decent future, refuse to ride here....Quiet Waters has adopted the worst form of "NANNY STATE" mentality, and it is not enough that they have you sign a 2 page liability release form and charge 5 or 6 bucks(no big deal)....but, they insist you watch a 10 minute video on how to safely trail ride --before they will let you on the trail....the trail typically is guarded by a person and a fence/gate, so this is mandatory. Who are they to tell those of us who have been mountain biking since the 80's or 90's what is safe or how to ride---and since when is it a good thing to let government tell force us to watch a safety video before we can go on a hike in the woods? The Wilderness is no place for the dumb, the sick, the horribly un-coordinated--the people that could not exist without protection....I would sign a waiver, but the video and whole Nanny State thing has me wanting to get this place boycotted.

Review: I live 30 seconds away from Markham, and about 30 minutes away from quiet water, but I'll be making the drive every weekend from now on up here. These trails are amazing, not as many roots as in Markham, much smoother, and the trails are continuous so they're easy to reach. No complaints at all with these trails.
