Review: Quiet Waters is a place with plenty of potential and endless possibilities. For someone that lives nearby, it's an okay trail. For myself on the other hand, I have Virginia Key, Amelia Earhart, Oleta River, and Markham as better/closer options. This park really needs something special, whether it's a trail or feature to really make it standout.

Review: I rated it at 4, but in reality I give Quiet Waters a 3.5/5. Looking at older pictures posted, a lot has changed due to natural disasters. There aren't a lot of areas that are truly challenging at this park (which also makes it a GREAT family ride). Not that that's a bad thing, it just depends on your preference. The good is that all trails are well marked, the trails are mostly fast and flow well. The "expert" trails aren't as challenging as other area parks but still engaging enough you need to pay attention to what you're doing (like the Teeter Totter feature). The majority of the trails are a mixture between hard packed dirt and rock. There are some VERY LOOSE sections that will definitely wash you out through some of the turns if you aren't careful. Nice features include some interesting boardwalks on the Turnpike Extension trail, as well as a decent single jump and series of whoops (although you won't find much of an opportunity to jump until the last one). There are lots of coral rock features randomly placed as obstacles which provide a little extra fun in picking a line. It's a pretty quick park to ride. I usually do the loop just under an hour taking a few water breaks. There's also a cool warm up loop which has a small log feature, stairs, a catwalk with a drop at the end, a banked turn with a wood ramp, and 3 platforms of varying height to do drops off of. If you haven't ridden here, you should by all means check it out. It's a nice place, just not as technical and diverse as other area parks.

Review: Probably one of my favorite trails. Well marked, always groomed, challenging, and great flow. There are beginner trails that are great for the family and expert trails that are fast and challenging. They have implemented a wash down area, and bathrooms are close by. Only draw-back is ensure you don't leave any valuables, it is in Miami and several cars are broken into every month.

Similar Trail: Marham and Virginia Beach

Review: Mostly packed gravel and loose rock in some sections. Overall a ton of fun to ride. Something for everyone including wooden features and jumps, even a teeter totter. Roughly 7 or so miles. Check in at the front office, the yearly pass is 26 dollars after tax and is good for Markham Park as well.

Review: Went before irma. Fun with some boardwalks, rocks and roots. Clearly had seen better days before katrina, and the signs, drops and rocks of the old loop are still there. Makes me a little sad, but even now there is a slalom course, many boardwalks and some steep concrete rollers. Fun trail, not worth the solo drive, hit markem and virgina key

Review: Rode for the first time today. This is now one of my favorite Singletracks in South Florida. Great flow, lots of obstacles for the size of the trail.
