As a mountain bike trail, this is excellent, definitely 5 stars. For hiking, it’s really meant for biking so at times it feels redundant walking in loops. There isn’t a lot of shade so I would go as early as possible to avoid the midday heat. I did see a few folks on bikes and I moved to the side to allow them to pass. Everyone biking the trail was really friendly and didn’t mind me there but I was definitely the only hiker. This says 4 miles, I don’t think that’s accurate. I walked the entire loop and even some side paths in 50 minutes. There are some gorgeous views of the water and city that you catch through breaks in the brush. Most importantly, DO NOT forget bug spray.

Great trail system and very well maintained by the VKBC. Love coming out here on the weekends and take in the views by the bay.

Amazing park but doesn’t have enough bathroom my husband suffer from uraine problem and had to pee in bush and almost got his penis bit off so thank you so much beautiful park by the way

Work in progress.....VK used to be so much fun but unfortunately after the hurricane the trail was wiped out!!! Volunteers are doing a great job recovering and adding more trails.
We still visit whenever we can.

This trail is totally worthless except for the las .5 miles when you really se some thing interesting on the channels and the Biscayne Bay.

A lot of debris and trash (I think is due to last hurricane Irma) maybe if do the trail starting from visitor center is a lot shorter and better.

I’ve been trail running every Saturday morning at VK for past 8 years; just love having this playground in my own backyard!

Nice 0.5 mike RT hike near the visitor center.

Rode Va Key this past weekend. Despite the damage from Irma, mt bike portion of the park looked pretty good. The volunteers who do trail maintenance are working hard and it shows.

great trails for riding

A nice boardwalk and jetty trail with wonderful views of the bay. To really enjoy the park though, you need to get out on or in the water.

great park the only complaint I have is that the grass was VERY overgrown, I did not feel comfortable letting my dog loose in the field, but if they were to cut the grass I would be there several times a week with my 2 dogs. the trail to the park is lovely and a very nice walk. overall we all enjoyed our time there! :)

Mountain biking in the different trailheads is great. They have different trails for different kinds of riders.
-Green circle is beginner
-Blue square is intermediate
-Black diamond is advanced.

They are currently working on a new trail and it will be considered a double black diamond. This is going to be a very difficult trail.

In conclusion I recommend to either go mountain biking, hiking, jogging, paddle boarding, kayaking, or enjoy a family picnic.

Virginia Key is awesome! My dad and I went there for the first time, and did the novice and intermediate trails. They have an unbelievable set up, this is a must-do for locals. Although the trails are relatively shady, I do recommend bringing an energy bar and some water, the heat will wipe you out.

I am in love with these trails. I'm a beginner but quickly becoming better because I'm enjoying riding vk so much I go 2 to 3 times a week. I just started trail running the same trails which are kicking my butt but loving every minute of it. You forget where your at when your there.

Updates: "Wild Thing" (INT) has now been extended! It's got a huge stairs obstacle twice the height of the one inside "War Pigs". Then it connects to the outside tricks area/open field for an even wilder and longer ride! Expect to break a sweat when you hit this for the first time!

VK keeps getting better and better!
Gonna have to start contributing to the cause! :)

This was our first time on this trail. Growing up in Miami, I've seen many changes in Virginia Key. This by is the best. The trails vary from easy to intermediate to advanced and there are mostly bikers on the trail, however tees could easily be hiked as we did. The views are spectacular and the atmosphere is great. Everyone is friendly and the seasoned bikers answered all our questions and gave us great tips. Bring insect repellent regardless of the time of year there are plenty of Mosquitos ready for a quick bite. Highly recommended - a true treasure in the heart of Key Biscayne. Take it from a Native!

Highly recommend. Five dollar cover charge, but well worth it. Beautiful sceneries with easy to advance trails. recommend mosquito repellant in the summer time.

It was nice to find there are terrific mountain biking trails right near downtown Miami. This is a perfect place to unwind after work or to do a midday ride if you work in the Brickell area and can sneak in a long lunch. The trails are well marked so you can skip some portions if you prefer to stick with beginner or intermediate trails. They are all fun and it's a great workout. I consider myself an intermediate rider but I will ocassionally take on the advanced trails. At Virginia Key I'll do every trail in less than an hour and that works well for me. Highway to Hell and War Pigs are the most challenging, but they are both a blast.
