Jones Hungryland Wildlife and Environmental Area — Jupiter Indiantown Grade
Jupiter Indiantown trailhead
This is a trailhead for the historic Jupiter Indiantown Grade, the road that once connected the two towns. Sections of it have been restored as a multiuse trail in recent years, including sections that pass through the Cypress Creek Natural Area near Jupiter in Palm Beach County. The trail essentially bisects Jones Hungryland from east to west, with trailheads — and parking — along Pratt Whitney Road as well as within the WEA. This view, taken in early April, is looking east from Road 5E within the interior of Jones Hungryland, and while the trail is built up a few feet above the land on either side, it can be a very wet walk depending on the season. Best time of the year to hike it: March to May, accordng to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
