The Virginia Key Mountain Bike Trail is a great example of a partnership between
the Parks and Recreation Department and residents who have a passion for a sport
and the willingness to develop a plan, motivate volunteers and make a vision come true.
Located on the north end of Virginia Key, the mountain trail was built by hand through volunteers from the Virginia Key Bike Club (VKBC) with resources provided by the City of Miami. The trails have been built to allow all levels of bicyclists access to the opportunity to be surrounded by nature and water (Biscayne Bay) in the heart of Miami while getting the thrills of mountain biking.

Parking Fees as of February 27, 2017 will be collected through the Pay by Phone and Pay By Plate program. You can download the Pay by Phone app at www.paybyphone.com or through the app store on your smartphone.

The trails are an ongoing project, still being expanded and enhanced. Should you want to
volunteer or find out more about the project, please visit the VKBC website
Some information borrowed from their site on the kind of trails available at the bike trails.
There are 3 distinct levels of trails Novice, Intermediate, and Advanced. Each trail has what is called a qualifier, basically if you are able to ride up, down or through the first 20 feet of a trail, you should not have any problems with the rest of the trail.
