WHY WE CARE
Every day hundreds of people walk, run, or bike along the historic Commodore Trail, a five-mile path hugging Biscayne Bay from Coral Gables to Key Biscayne. The trail is Miami’s best-kept not-so-secret destination. While the Commodore Trail is heavily used, few residents know its name, let alone its importance.
The mission of Friends of the Commodore Trail is to advocate for the improvement and maintenance of the trail. We are a group of neighbors committed to advocating for a safe, functional, well-designed path for all to love and enjoy.
The Commodore Trail represents the best of Miami – its beauty, history, and unique environment. Join our movement and help us advocate for a better Commodore Trail for future generations.
