Trail Description
About this trail
There's approximately 10 miles if you follow all the trails available. Conditions vary depending on which portion of the trail you're on. What you're actually riding on is the fill left from when they originally dug the lakes in the park, so conditions go from rocky in some areas to hard packed sand in the forested areas. For the majority though I'd say the trails are nicely packed sand. About the only warning I can give is that unless you enjoy swimming your bike through gigantic puddles, avoid the park after a good rainstorm. The lakes have a tendancy of overflowing into the trails when it storms.

Q: This seems to be incorrectly located on the map. My map shows these trails in the Melbourne, FL area just south of Rockledge, but they appear to be in South Florida, west of Ft. Lauderdale. Can someone confirm this? -jchipps86

A: Markham park is West of Ft. Lauderdale, right off State Road 84.

Review: When it started to snow in the Northeast last week, we decided to high tail it to Florida for some more reasonable fall weather. This is the first of 4 videos we'll be posting in the coming weeks. We started just outside of Fort Lauderdale in Sunrise Florida. Markham Park is a lesser hyped trail than Virginia Keys, Santos, and Alafia. We think that may be because the locals want to keep it all to themselves... and we don't blame them!

Review: The trails were well maintained and were so much fun! Markham park has something for everyone. From super technical climbs to super flowy trails and some really fun jumps. Markham park has some super easy trails for people just learning to ride, and some super difficult trails for experts trying to improve their skills. I had a great time and would definitly return if I didn't live in PA.

Review: Fun trails to ride. I always have a blast here. Man made obstacles for downhill and technical rides. Watch out for armadillos!

Review: No idea how it is after Irma now, sounded pretty harsh, but when i went just before this trail system was a friggen blast! It had plenty of things for everyone, from double diamond gaps, to wooden ladder bridge drops, to double track and rock gardens. Hell of a time, great to ride in conjunction with virgina key, Amelia Earhart and other close south Florida trails. great time, will defiantly go back

Review: Post Irma Cleanup the trails are 100% re-opened and riding fantastic. If anything some of the alterations forced by Irma have made certain areas even more fun and interesting to ride. Route 66 trail has just gotten a new boardwalk on its advanced section as well.
