Trails Benefits & Design Guidelines


Greenways and trails can have significant positive impacts to achieving social, environmental and economic goals. Trails increase accessibility to schools, parks, transit and employment for area residents while providing opportunities for healthier lifestyles. Trails and paths can help stabilize or increase property values and create new retail jobs just to list a few benefits.

Miami-Dade County Parks, Recreation and Open Spaces Department has complied identified trail, greenway and linear park benefits into a single comprehensive document; the Miami-Dade County Trail Benefits Study.

Design Guidelines

The purpose of the Miami-Dade County Trail Design Guidelines and Standards: Ludlam Trail Case Study is to provide specific guidance for the design and development of the Ludlam Trail and provide general guidelines for non-motorized urban shared-use trails and paths throughout Miami-Dade County by building upon the Miami-Dade County Parks and Open Space System Master Plan Great Greenways, Trails and Water Trails Vision.

These guidelines and standards were developed to work in concert with other regional and corridor specific studies and planning efforts. In addition, these guidelines and standards intend to inform decision markers on future designs of non-motorized urban shared-use trails and paths within Miami-Dade County.
