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.
The Jupiter Waterway Trail was officially recognized by the DEP Greenways & Trails System in 2013. The Town of Jupiter is continuing its efforts to encourage eco-tourism around the Jupiter Waterway Trail by focusing on several opportunities to designate the trail with other agencies and associations. These designations will support marketing efforts to promote the trail and all of the eco-tourism amenities available in the Jupiter area. As a primary means of promoting and marketing the Trail, the Town is developing an interactive map. The map and its database of information would be available on the web 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-layed data that will help eco-tourists identify launch and entry points, and find vendors and businesses that support eco-tourism activities.
