Review: For South Florida, doesn't get much better than this. There really is a nice amount of intermediate sections that flow together nicely and rides fast. The trails also seem to be a bit wider for the most part which for me is a good thing, I seem to always find those hidden stumps on the sides of my regular trails. The advanced section is fun. I especially like the smooth climbs. The features are fun to ride, bridges, trailer and giant mounds all seem to run nice. I would definitely not mind if this was my "Backyard" trail. Look forward to my next trip.

Review: The park it self has great trails, nothing too advanced but enough to keep advanced riders entertained and good workout. The only complaint is the whatever kind of bugs they have that eat me alive, especially when it's wet. Once that mud/dirt gets on you, you're guaranteed to get bitten. I assume they're on the plants and when it rains they wash off or maybe they're on the ground already, witchever it is they suck. As I said, good trails for a local park but I've decided to cover from head to toe during the rainy season at the expense of overheating just to avoid those $&@!!/& bug bites.

Review: Amelia is a great park to ride in South Florida. There is a great mixture of trails for novice and more advanced riders. There are great flat trails and excellent elevation changes comprised of some challenging climbs and fun descents. All of the trails flow extremely well and are very well maintained. You will find a mixture of some loose, rocky surfaces, hard packed dirt, some sand and some root heavy sections (although this is minimum). The trails are all marked clearly and there are plenty of choices. Additional trail features are iguanas and lizards that you have never seen before. Lots of them. Seriously. Watch out for the one on Camel Hump... no courtesy to riders, it does what it wants, which is run directly infront of you at the last second. Little Razorback is a blast and will provide a challenge and SERIOUS workout for any rider. There are many steep ascents, quick drops and banked turns in this section. A few opportunities for some quick and carefully planned jumps as well. My favorite part is probably the descent from the initial climb, which is the first spot to hit a decent jump. Next is the exit of this section of trail, which is a fast flowing decent with sharp banked turns that lead to a double jump and a pretty cool climb through a tractor trailer. My other favorite trail section is Key Biscayne. The elevation changes aren't as dramatic as Little Razorback, but there is a SUPER fun, flowing decent into a sharp banked corner that you can hit as fast as you are comfortable with. If you carry enough speed, you will find the series of jumps immediately after can be cleared pretty well. There is also a jump line that runs lakeside (close to Key Biscayne and Golden Gate) that allows some quick and fun air time. Nothing major, but you can defy gravity pretty easily in this section. Hurricane Irma did a LOT of damage to the trail system which is still evident. The trail volunteers did a great job of cleaning up and clearing out the damage. The Golden Gate trail was still closed during my last visit (April 2018) but work was being done on it. Riding Amelia is a great endurance builder and you can easily spend a few hours on the trails. They do offer bike rentals (I saw hardtail Treks) at the trailhead and there's a bike wash as well. The park itself is very large and is pretty busy during weekends. Parking on the weekends is a flat rate $7. There are meters peppered throughout the park to pay at. Definitely worth the visit. Edit: June 2018, trails have been reversed and Golden Gate bridge is open. Everything is in great shape.

Review: These are the best freakin trails in the Miami area. Hands down. Begginers trails are fun for everyone. Intermediate poses a small challenge for pros, and lots of fun for beginners. At the advanced trails are intense. The trails are awesome. I recommend crossing the swamp.

Review: And you thought Florida was flat? Well yes, but not this park. Technically these are our mountains, and they are fun! Let me start of by saying this single track has something for everyone! From Beginner, Intermediate, to Advance trails they all have some fun features like rock gardens, root sections, doubles, pump tracks, loose sand, big bridges, and some nice downgrades for you to shred. Overall the track has a nice flow to it which is somewhat cross country.The complete track is about 8.5 miles, and I personally recommend you do the Golden Gate Trail more than once because it's my favorite (Intermediate). However, if your looking for more of a challenge make sure you follow the "Crossing the Swamp" trail all the way to the back where you will find "Little Razorback". This is where you will find the steepest climbs and descents the park has to offer. Make sure to hydrate well as the it gets hot and these climbs will test your fitness level! Did I mention there is iguanas that serve as trolls. Be careful as they like to run in your path when going up or down hill. After your done there is a Bike Wash. I hope this review helps! Have fun and always remember to wear a helmet! best regards, FLY XC
