Construction has officially begun on the highly anticipated Biscayne-Everglades Greenway Trail. The bicycle and pedestrian trail is the first of its kind to connect two national parks. From families to the experienced, riders and pedestrians will be able to enjoy the 42-mile paved loop that links the natural, cultural, and historical resources of South Florida. The trail will take riders through Downtown Homestead and connect them directly to Biscayne and Everglades National Parks. Residents can expect construction throughout the City of Homestead as the trail is being completed. The Biscayne-Everglades Greenway Trail seeks to offer a safe and scenic route to the parks without concern for vehicular traffic.
The project is a result of a partnership between the City of Homestead and the Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) SUN Trail Grant. The trail is entirely grant funded and is a part of the longstanding mission of the City of Homestead and FDOT to promote health, wellness, and a safe scenic route for riders.
