Within the next two months, the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and Museum in Jupiter will be getting a new walking trail. The new 500-foot path will be made of gravel and is expected to be completed by the end of July or early August. The new path will lead to the water and shoreline.

The path will increase the area to public access, will have native plants species will be planted along the pathway to preserve the shorelines ecosystem, prevent erosion, to protect the cultural resources, and to provide more recreational activities in the community. The new project came about due to the increasing use of the slope near the cemetery located on the historic site. Dirt is expected to be delivered this week to start the project.

The Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse is owned by the U.S. Coast Guard and has been around for more than 150 years. The lighthouse was lit in 1860 and is still in service today. The lighthouse in Jupiter is just one of two other lighthouses in the United States to have earned the Outstanding Natural Area designation, in 2008.

The Lighthouse and Museum offer a calendar of events throughout the year including Walking Tours, Twilight Yoga at the Light, Lighthouse Sunset Tours, Story Time and Crafts for kids, Self-Guiding tours, and much more. Coming up next week, the Lighthouse will be celebrating its 158th Anniversary on Tuesday, July 10th. The all-day fee event will include tours, history and more. The event starts at 10 am, click here for more information. Children must be 48 inches tall to climb the lighthouse tower.
