IMG_8211

THINGS TO DO IN JUPITER!

Pedaling along the Wild & Scenic Loxahatchee River is a fun-filled adventure. And it’s right here in our own backyard – one of many fun Things To Do in Jupiter.

YES, YOU ARE STILL IN JUPITER!

Cowpen Lake is just a short pedal from JUPITER OUTDOOR CENTER, but you’ll be amazed what you’ll see.

Sandhill cranes, great blue herons, red-shouldered hawks and other birds are regulars.

So are red-bellied turtles, otters and alligators.

Our guides have recently reported seeing several manatees.

Take a ride with your friends or sign up for one of JOC’S guided tours — either way, your trip is a fun way  to nurture with nature for awhile — one of the fun Things To Do in Jupiter.

 

EASY BICYCLE TRAILS

Wide and shady, the crushed-stone bicycle trails are easy for expert and novice peddlers.

Along the miles of trails, there are lots of covered huts to stop and relax, like this one near Cowpen Lake.

Don’t worry about getting lost. The covered huts have maps to show where you are as you enjoy one of the outdoors Things To Do in Jupiter.

No hurrying allowed!

 

KEEP YOUR EYES PEELED FOR WILDLIFE

Deer– we spotted this deer near Reese Trail —  otters, wild turkeys, red-bellied turtles, butterflies and more critters are common in the park.

Don’t forget your backpack with a hat, bug spray, binoculars, sun protection and sun glasses.

There’s lots of places to stop and take a break. Many visitors bring their lunch on an adventure that is one of the Things To Do in Jupiter.

Covered pavilions — with seats and tables — are available along the route.

 

ADD A LITTLE PADDLE TO YOUR PEDALING ADVENTURE?

Check out JOC’s Pedal & Paddle tour.

Or just stop like we did here at the JOC launch point and wach the peddlers and the paddlers go by.

Our expert guides will take you for a pedaling adventure on more than a dozen miles on the crushed stone trails.

Single bikes, tandem bikes, kids bikes, wide-tire bikes, bikes with baskets — JOC has ’em all when you enjoy Things To Do in Jupiter.

Then, hop onto a kayak and your JOC guide will lead you on an adventure under the cypress canopies of the the Loxahatchee River.

 

HUNGRY?

After your adventure, create your own fresh Açaí or Pitaya Bowl at The Magic Bowls, the shiny food truck near the JOC entrance at Riverbend Park.

Amanda Oswalt and Isaac Hernandez are serving up their healthy foods on weekends at one of the many Things To Do in Jupiter.

The pitaya bowls are our favorite.
