A: They have a rental center at the park. The bikes are ok Jamis and Specialized nothing great. Time to time I have seen some soft tail and several 29's in the stalls do not expect anything higher end they will get the job done.

Review: Fairly nice single track. Lots of tree roots they also but down a lot of loose gravel in the trails I assume to you help you see the trail but i found that with any kinda of speed it made the ride feel unstable. Also there is a very important lack of signage & trail maps out on the trails. I was stopped & asked for direction many times

Review: First time riding in Florida. I am from Utah and I think this review will be most useful to someone visiting Florida and Oleta. Locals may love this place because you could squeeze in a quick before or after work ride. And as you got to know the layout, you would be able to link trails together more quickly and easily.

Oleta is series of separate, tight, twisting, short rides divided by gravel/dirt roads, not one continuous ride. I rode nearly all of the routes in 2 hours and that was with quite a bit of time spent trying to figure out how to get to the next group of rides. (Make sure to grab a map at the ranger station. Even with it, it can take time to get oriented because the trails are marked well but the roads connecting them are not.)

At first, riding through the swamps and jungles was cool and unique--but I was surprised at how quickly it got old. Maybe because there was no flow or places to really get up some speed. I don't mind technical riding and roots as long as it's mixed with some speed and flow sections.

I saw lots of amateurs exploring mountain biking here which is fantastic. The short length and slowness of the trails is well-suited to beginners. Advanced riders will likely not enjoy Oleta as much.

Oleta was fun to try once but once was definitely enough for me.

Review: Not for people that come from well groomed trails. This is grass roots(no pan intended) trail riding in south Florida.
You can ride fast here you can ride anywhere.

Review: It has so much potential but you can tell they have done very little in terms of maintenance and upkeep. There's tons of rocks, roots and coral rock but it's boring. Beware of car break-ins. Last visit, a fellow riders car had the window broken for a bag he left.

Review: My favorite place in Florida. This is a beautiful park, right on the Intercoastal in N. Miami Beach. Great trail system of one-way trails. One trail will start and end, and the next one will pick up. Great flow to everything.

Review: First of all, the trails were wet and should have been closed the day we were out there, but they were poorly marked and even more poorly carved. We got off trail multiple times because we could not tell where to go. Very rooty, rocky and some technical climbs though.
