Rider questions

Q: hi, i will be in miami next week, and i d like to ride there.. what s the closest bike rental?
A: Florida city's are either 100% bike or not this is near to miami beach which doesn't have a lot of bikes. but quite a bit of rental scooters. i have never been here specifically but I have to close ones like Amelia Earhart. usually there a rental place right outside the entrance to the trail. also keep in mind that it's a trail and not a bike park be ready to pedal.

Q: Hi guys i will be visiting miami in march and was thinking about training in this park for 4 days. Donyou think it is rideable in a fully rigid mtb (hardtail, rigid fork)? Thx
A: I ride SS Rigid. No Problems.

    It's cool. I'm glad I came. Clean, nicely kept, good signage. Not tough at all but it will keep your cardio up and eyes open. The switch backs are tight. The burns short. Great to practice accelerating and breaking

    On our second day in Miami we hit up Virginia Key North Point Mountain Biking trails. This place has an amazing view and some really interresting trails. Think features features features. throw in some sand, a few coconuts, a thousand guys with music blasting from their back pockets and you have yourself a good time all ontop of a remediated landfill from 1961. After you'e done riding - rent a kayak and go visit the manatees - or take a swim like we did.

    For the space they have, VK has an amazing trail system with some wonderful volunteers that keep the park in great shape. The trails are fun to ride and cover a whole range of skill levels. The Intermediates are pretty accessible to new riders, but some of the Extremes give a goal to shoot for.

    Conditions were nearly perfect. New loop added is sweet and I saw on their Facebook page that they're working on my favorite Tom Sawyer!!!

    For a new rider, these trails are excellent. They're well-marked and we'll-maintained, and they offer a little of everything to help you learn to ride. There's a prevailing breeze blowing off the ocean that keeps you cool on hot days, and lots of trees shading the trails. Riders here seem to be very friendly, and there are many blue and green trails with some decent variety considering the gravelly terrain. Bring a camera or GoPro because the ocean view is beautiful, and because mountain bike trails at only twelve feet above sea-level is a rare experience.

    Word of warning: if a guy tells you to try Purple Haze because it's good for new riders, that guy is not your friend. You're gonna get hazed for real.

    Great trail with a lot to offer from beginner to advanced. Lots of new features being built. AMAZING views and scenery too. Can get pretty hot where some trails dont have much shade. Worth a trip to visit!

    Made a video while there if interested...

    Great trails for pros. If you're just starting out DONT COME HERE! The easy trails are just long straight lines, but the intermediate and advanced stuff is fire. IRMA did damage, so some trails were closed.

    Fun as hell. You'll have a blast as a beggener, intermediate, or advanced rider. Some prime south florida flow, with some jumps and tech mixed to to create a great experience. Don't know much about hurricane damage, heading back in decemeber for a multi trail session. Worth the trip, especially with so many other good trails. Lots of wood and rock work, hard to think someone put all that there. Thumbs up guys!

    Phenomenal job of putting so much into such a small space. Even on the black diamond trails, you have the ability to progress as almost everything is rollable.

    It is Florida, so don't expect long climbs. You can expect, however, lots of fun in a well-marked, well-thought out trail system. Main trail is one big loop from which all other trails start and end into, so it is next to impossible to get lost. The other advantage is that most trails start and end at the same point, so if somebody in your group is not comfortable with a Black Diamond, for example, they can wait at the exit of that trail and continue the ride together later. very cool. They also have an Adaptive Trail.

    Flow Flow Flow....

    As a local guy this is my home trail. But don't think that I'm giving it 5 stars because of this. A couple of times a year my brother and I travel with our bikes exploring trails all over the country. We find that our home trail isn't the most challenging, or technical, or long... No, it's just pure fun rolled up with cool features that are advanced but mostly flowie. (Notice I said Features) The trails have a ton of flow from section to section. The short clearly marked individual trails can be ridden in a couple of minutes and the whole loop including the Advanced trails being riden in about 35-40min going at a good pace. The best part about this system is that it almost seems like on a weekly basis there are new things added. The VK bike club dose an amazing job with these trails and are constantly adding more track. (Rite now they are about to add a completely new trail.) If you come ride VK you will see the majority of the advanced riders running laps around the Loop of tails. This allows you to learn the features quickly making it fun to ride quick. There is a newly added bike was station and the kayak/bike rental place offers snacks and drinks.

    Great novice trail to get started intermediate offers up some challenges. It's where I started the sport and there always adding new trails. I've ridden other trails but always find my self loving this one. It has a bit of everything. Expert trails are challenging and fun especially war pigs.

    Lovely trail system. Very well maintained. Mostly flowy, intermediate terrain with a few technical bits thrown in.

    Great trail system that has a good variety. Hard trails are pretty challenging, tight and twisty. I always have fun here. Well maintained too. Not as rough as Markham but has technical spots. Can get pretty busy on weekends, just don't block the trail when taking a break.
    You can pay $5 to get in the park or park on the causeway for free. Watch out for roadies, they really hate mountain bikers here.

    Very interesting trail system. A good mix of nice flow trails with some more advanced features. There are great views of the bay/ocean from various stops along the way. The elevation of the trail system ensures that it stays rideable through most rainy days.
