The Trails — Easy Hiking

Riverbend County Park

riverbend park trail

There are 10 miles of hiking trails within Riverbend County Park, and most are like this: hard rock surfaced and broad, making for easy hiking. The one caveat: hikers have to share with bikers, which really isn't much of a problem because the trails are more than wide enough to easily accomodate both. Riverbend is considered the hub of a network of trails called the Jeaga Wildways that cut through some 160,000 acres of county and state preserved lands. The Ocean to Lake Trail cuts through the park, and park trails connect to the Pantano Trail and nearby Loxahatchee Slough Natural Area. This is the Reese Trail cutting through a section of the park dominated by cabbage palms and live oak hammocks. Riverbend is heavily wooded to a surprising extent. On to our next stop.
