MTB parks N:002 – Virginia Keys MTB trails
Virginia Keys MTB trails - Key Biscayne,FL
What is now Virginia Key was the southern end of a barrier island that extended from the New River inlet in Fort Lauderdale just north of Key Biscayne. Early accounts by Spanish explorers indicated the existence of one or more inlets somewhere on the long spit of land enclosing the northern end of Biscayne Bay, but such inlets open and close over time. At the beginning of the 19th century, there was no inlet through the barrier island between the New River Inlet and Bear Cut, at the northern end of Key Biscayne.
Ever wanted to mountain bike on an island? The Virginia Key Mountain Bike Park is the perfect place to do it. With challenging stunts and obstacles dotting the sandy paths, these trails will give you a rush of excitement as well as beautiful South Florida coastal views.
There are plenty of trails for each skill level to enjoy. The history of The Virginia Key North Point also adds intrigue to the island. The beaches on the island were once a location for a little-known civil rights protest when segregation was at an all-time high in the United States. After a brave protest by several African American citizens daring to swim in the waters when not allowed, the Virginia Key North Point beach eventually became a designated site where African Americans could swim freely and enjoy the beaches without worrying about oppression and segregation.
The Virginia Key Mountain Bike Park is a great place to visit for mountain bikers and history lovers alike.
