Socially distanced outdoor exercise is encouraged even now during the coronavirus. Rather than visiting crowded gyms, those nervous about the coronavirus may enjoy exploring some of Florida’s great biking and hiking trails.
Loxahatchee River Paddling Trail
The swift and twisting Loxahatchee River is worthy of its status as Florida's first National Wild and Scenic River. Trapper Nelson's cabin is a point of interest near the trail's terminus in Jonathan Dickinson State Park near Stuart. The coffee-colored stream meanders through an unspoiled subtropical river swamp where bald cypress pond apple orchids and ferns line the shores. The 8.5-mile paddling trail makes for an ideal day-long adventure for intermediate or experienced paddlers.
