Canoeing & Kayaking Trails

Jupiter Waterway Trail

The Jupiter Waterway Trail is a series of trails that connect the Loxahatchee River, Intracoastal Waterway and Jupiter Inlet. These legs and off-shoots create a natural playground of eco-tourism activities, from kayaking and stand-up paddleboarding to snorkeling, boating, fishing, and diving. It also has several adjacent natural areas that encourage “near-water” activities like hiking, biking, beaching and enjoying wildlife, such as bird-watching.
