Historic Jupiter-Indiantown Trail and Cypress Creek Natural Area
Horseback riding, biking and hiking enthusiasts have a new destination in northwestern Palm Beach County. Located west of Florida's Turnpike on the north side of Indiantown Road, Phase I was formally opened with a ceremony held March 24, 2012. The project was constructed by Palm Beach County's Department of Environmental Resources Management with federal stimulus grant dollars provided through the MPO. Additional details below photos.
