Grab your helmet and hop on a bike. Our area from Palm Beach to Jupiter Island is abundant with bike paths and pretty vistas to view from atop 2 wheels. Most roads have a bike path, and there are many trails that connect parks, greenways, and natural areas to explore. And it’s also fun to explore neighborhoods and quiet streets from the bike. See below for some of our favorite trails:
Entrance: 9060 Indiantown Road, Jupiter
Take a step back in time and enjoy historic Riverbend Park. From the ancient Indian middens, through the Seminole War Battles, to present day restoration, see Florida as the first settlers did. Nearly 10 miles of bike trails, along with miles of hiking and equestrian trails grace the park.
Jonathan Dickinson State Park
Entrance:16450 S.E. Federal Highway, Hobe Sound
This park offers many activities and opportunities for outdoor adventure! For cyclists, there are miles of easy, paved trails; intermediate double-track trails through the woods; and advanced single-track sandy trails through coastal dunes and scrub pines. The advanced mountain bike trails are known as the Camp Murphy trails. There are more than 8 miles of single-track trails at various elevations.
Historic Jupiter-Indiantown Road
This regional trail project, which includes the section of the trail that passes through the County’s Cypress Creek Natural Area, has been developed in the alignment of Old Indiantown Road, which once served as the major route of commerce between Jupiter and Indiantown.
The Bluegill Trail officially opened in, 2011. It is the first trail that links several natural areas to Riverbend Park. The trailhead is located at the rear (south) entrance to Riverbend Park. There is a multi-use bridge that has been installed over the C-18 canal for hikers, bikers, and equestrians. The first section of the trail is 5.3 miles long and runs from Riverbend Park in Jupiter to Sandhill Crane Access Park in Palm Beach Gardens (PGA Blvd).
This slice of paradise is perfect to experience on a bike. The 17-mile-long island is peaceful and offers a peek at some of the expansive homes and ocean views. With speed limits in the 15-25 mph range, it’s a casual ride. And with only two bridges connecting the island to the mainland, it’s mildly remote with minimal traffic.
Palm Beach Lake Trail
Perhaps one of the best trails in South Florida from Palm Beach to Jupiter Island is the Palm Beach Lake Trail, a paved path that runs along the island’s western side. At 5.5 miles from Peruvian Ave to E. Inlet Drive, the path is lined with stately homes, magnificent trees, and manicured hedges and offers harbor vistas and an intimate encounter with the Palm Beach lifestyle.
