Riverbend Park – 5 Bicycle Paths to Connect With Nature



Riverbend Park – Path To Connect With Nature

From the sun-drenched bicycling paths along the glittering Atlantic Ocean to meandering shell trails shaded by towering banyan trees, pedaling in the Jupiter area is fantastic for beginners and pedaling veterans.

JUPITER OUTDOOR CENTER will help you set up a tour for you and your group. You can explore Riverbend Park. Or we’ll bring bicycles to your starting location. We’ll pick up the equipment when you are done.
All you do is show up and have fun!

Early mornings are the best time to explore Riverbend Park on  Indiantown Road about a mile west of  Florida’s Turnpike.

Deer, turkeys, otters, great blue herons, owls, turtles — maybe even a ‘gator or two lounging in the Wild and Scenic Loxahatchee River — are likely visitors.

Wide tires, narrow tires, tandems, small, large, bikes with baskets, bikes with attachments for infants — JUPITER OUTDOOR CENTER rents ’em all. We have helmets.

Get a group together at Riverbend Park and head put on your own adventure. Don’t worry about getting lost. There are shaded gazebos, with maps, scattered throughout the Riverbend Park.

Or hire a JUPITER OUTDOOR CENTER guide, we’ll show you all the nooks and crannies at Riverbend Park, such as ancient Indian middens and Seminole War battle sites.

Pedal to the beat of the waves as you enjoy the sights along the glittering Atlantic Ocean. The bike paths are wide, water fountains are at regular intervals and historic locations make for interesting spots to take off your helmet and relax.

Cool breezes from the turquoise Jupiter Inlet greet you when you start your tour at DuBois Park. There are spectacular views of the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse and the waves crashing along the rocks on both sides of the narrow waterway. And check out the DuBois House, where Harry and Susan DuBois raised 4 children in the late 1890s. The children took a boat to school and the family had 600 bee hives.

When you head out onto A1A, you can go south past Carlin Park, along the ocean to the Juno Beach Pier. Or head north toward Jupiter Inlet Village and Charlie & Joe’s at Love Street, Jupiter’s newest outdoor dining attraction. Check out the plaque for the Celestial Railroad, the 1890s Jupiter-to-Lake Worth railway that made stops at Venus, Mars and Jupiter.

Beaches, coastal scrub jay habitats, mangrove lagoons, manatees, entertainment, dining – check ’em all out as you pedal along the town’s 2.5-mile Riverwalk on the eastern shoreline of the Intracoastal Waterway on the south side of the Jupiter Inlet.

Entry ways to the Riverwalk are available at Mangrove Bay, Jupiter Yacht Club, the Best Western Hotel and the Plaza Down Under on the Riverwalk. Free parking is available.

Other stops include Burt Reynolds Park, Inlet Village Marina and Jupiter Yacht Club.

Hobe sound

A 10-mile pedal along the gorgeous barrier island is a spectacular adventure past Blowing Rocks Preserve, lushly manicured homes and beautiful beaches.

Wide, tall and shady, the “tunnel of trees” lining Bridge Road at the northern end of your ride to Hobe Sound brings welcome relief to bike riders on a warm day.

Banyan trees are native to India. The first one was planted in Florida in Fort Myers in 1925 by the inventor Thomas Edison.

With gangly branches and thick foliage, banyan trees can grow 100 feet tall.

Trip with bicycle

Choose your adventure.

That’s the mantra at this sprawling, magnificent park that includes mangroves, river swamps and all other kinds of natural wonderlands.

Bicycle trails are are designated into one of three levels of difficulty ranging from easy to extremely difficult. Trails are mostly singletrack but there are also features like roots, jumps, wooden ladders, raised boardwalks and switchbacks.

Thank volunteers with Club Scrub for the excellent  condition of the trails. They are dedicated to the care, preservation, and promotion of the Camp Murphy MTB trails.
