If you are a water environmental fan who lives in or visits the Jupiter area, you are in for a wonderful treat! The "Jupiter Waterway Trail", created by the Town of Jupiter is a series of trails that connect the Loxahatchee River, Intracoastal Waterway and Jupiter Inlet. There is so much more to be explored than just the white sandy beaches and sparkling blue Atlantic Ocean.
The Town of Jupiter, and surrounding areas, is a natural playground of fun outdoor activities, from kayaking and stand-up paddle boarding, wakeboarding and water skiing, to snorkeling, boating, fishing, and diving. It's the perfect year around location for raising a family, active young at heart, or anyone in between.
The DEP Greenways & Trails System officially recognized the “Jupiter Waterway Trail”, in 2013. The waterway trail system includes several neighboring natural areas that encourage “near-water” activities like hiking, biking, beaching and just enjoying the wildlife.
The Jupiter Waterway launch trails and locations are Coral Cove Park, South Extension DuBois Park, Burt Reynolds Park, Limestone Creek Natural Area, Sawfish Bay Park, Riverbend Park, Jonathan Dickinson State Park, Inlet Village Park, as well as many Jupiter Beach Access Points. The Town of Jupiter, as a primary means of promoting and marketing the “Jupiter Waterway Trail”, is developing an interactive map. The map, and its database of information, will be available on the online soon and “as a mobile application showing eco-tourism routes, stops, launches, natural areas, and sights along and connected to the Jupiter Waterway Trail. To support the mobile app, the map will have over-layer information that will help “eco-tourists identify launch and entry points, and find vendors and businesses that support eco-tourism activities.” The goal is to view trip routes and trails, allow users to map their own routes, view nearby, local businesses supportive of these types of activities, and share eco-tourism experiences with other users.
For outdoor adventure enthusiasts, the “Jupiter Waterway Trail” Mobile Guide is a mobile app, which highlights the area’s natural waterways, habitats and history. Visit the mobile guide app page to learn more.
