The Palm Beaches have a lot of great outdoor running trails for all you jogging enthusiasts. Here’s a guide to a few of our favorites.
At Carlin Park, you can jog either on the mulch-lined track/obstacle course or right along the water. Either way, it’s a scenic option that’s sure to give you your share of vitamin D and fresh air along with everything else you typically get from jogging.
Riverbend is a 666-acre park split by the Loxahatchee River is a good, shaded spot to run on some more rugged trails and enjoy some tropical foliage. There are 10 miles of trails, mainly on compacted shell rock. Design your own route here. There is some nice running along the river. Riverbend to Riverwalk loop is 2.5 miles. Park Info. Can also add on 2 miles of the Jupiter-Indiantown Trail in the Cypress.
The Juno Pier
Juno Beach Pier Area. This is one of the better beachside running spots in the area. Run the 0.2 miles out Juno Beach Pier, a popular fishing pier. There is good running along A1A (Ocean Dr.) in this area, as there are sidewalks and good ocean views from just south of the Pier, for about 1.5 miles to just north of Ocean Bluffs Rd. You can run for several miles on the beach, but the sand tends to be softer and muddier.
