Biscayne Everglades Greenway Trail Opens with Inaugural Ride

Mayor, Councilmembers, and Mayor of Miami-Dade Cutting Ribbon marking the opening of BEG trail

On Saturday, March 11th, over 250 bike enthusiasts gathered at Harris Field for the grand opening of the first completed section of the highly-anticipated Biscayne-Everglades Greenway Trail. The event started with a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony where City of Homestead Mayor Steve Losner, City Council members, and Miami Dade County Mayor Daniella Levine Cava gave a few remarks on the importance of the trail.    

Soon after the Ribbon Cutting Ceremony, bike riders enjoyed the beautiful weather as they rode on the family-friendly six-mile route, with water and rest stations along the way. Upon returning to Harris Field, riders connected with other bicycle enthusiasts and enjoyed fresh juices and refreshments from vendors.

The Biscayne-Everglades Greenway Trail is the first of its kind to connect two national parks. From families to the experienced, riders and pedestrians will eventually 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. 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.
