    Overnight rain did this trail some good in my opinion, not so dry an dusty. Fun for the entire family, from beginners to pros.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    Fun Park! Genrally Fast And Flowy, Nothing Really That Hard. Good Place To Start Beginners, But I Still Had Fun. Just Go Really Fast And Boost The Jumps and Its A Great Time!

    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,

    This is my favorite trail. I hit it 3 times a week It was the first trail I ever rode. While its not the most advanced the intermediate sections are solid rides and its lots of fun.

    Only problem is random people who walk the trail...these people will walk the straights and you have to slow down to pass them.

    This is one of the best trails I have ridden in South Florida. There is something for everyone here and the grounds maintenance is top notch. Really flowing trails too. Get out there.

    This is a really fast cross country trail. Definitely worth checking out if you're staying in south Florida! Watch out for the iguanas which are huge, plentiful and love to dart across the trail.

    While there may not be a lot of advanced features, the riding here is super flowy and fun. This is a GREAT place to build up your speed. When I starting out, I was having a lot of trouble advancing my skills at Markham Park (a nearby MTB park). I did one ride at Amelia and felt 100% better! The flow makes for a great time.

    It's an average trail with some technical features like riding through a shipping container and lots of berms and jumps. For some weird reason they covered a lot of the trail with carpet, it might've been great a few years ago but it's becoming very bumpy and dangerous in spots. Half of the trail was saturated or under water, seems the dirt here stays wet, only added rock and gravel in some spots. In need of maintenance, especially on the carpet berms and low areas that stay muddy.

    I recall this being a fairly basic place for beginners and litter cover from the sun.

    Very well marked trails. Enjoyed the flow and turns and quick climbs this park had to offer. The different sections and trails flowed together very well.

    Great trail and amazingly maintained!
    But word of warning! DO NOT rent the bikes there. They are in awful unsafe condition. Most have worn to the thread tires. We choose three with the best tires. None have working shocks. One has the stretched to the limit chain so every time you switch it jumps. All have out-of-true wheels.
    Gear switching worked (there was another bike where there was no way to switch gears). But breaks worked!
