This is probably the one place in Miami for off-road mountain biking, in the middle of the city it is hard to
believe that such a place even exists and this is one of the Oleta River Park's main attractions.
The several miles of paved
and off-road trails of differing degrees of difficulty, make it suitable for both novices and experienced
The trails weave along the mangrove preserve and the thick vegetation of the area, passing through lagoons and
Oleta's sandy beach.
There are three miles of paved trails which are suitable for rollerblading as well.
The off-road trails are well-marked and novices should pay attention to stay on the easier paths as the intermediate and advanced
trails might prove to be too challenging.
You will run into picnic areas along the way, so stop for a break and enjoy the relative solitude of some parts of the park.
