Designation Adds Local Pathway to a 3,000-mile Trail System


On Saturday, October 22, 2011, members of the East Coast Greenway and the Town of Jupiter connected to join the Riverwalk to the East Coast Greenway. The Greenway, which is a continuous, 3,000 mile trail that extends from Maine to Key West, was formed in 1991. Future routes will add another 2,000 miles to the trail system, which runs along waterways, through parks and natural areas, abandoned railroad corridors, and highway pathways.

"Riverwalk and the East Coast Greenway are a perfect match," said Jupiter Mayor Karen Golonka. "Becoming part of a Maine-to-Key-West connection furthers the Riverwalk vision of providing recreation and enjoyment along our waterfront, whether by foot, cycle or boat," she added.
