Sunday March 10th 9:15 we start walking at 9:30 am
This is a Joint Meet up with the 45 Plus walking/hiking group
This will be a hike of exploration. This hike will include trails both within and outside of Riverbend Park. The emphasis will be on trails that we have not yet hiked on within the Park, combined with some of the familiar trails just north of the park. See photo. The pace will be a moderate 2.5 mph with scenic stops along the way. Take your camera. This hike is suitable for beginners who can keep the pace. Bring a snack and water. The hike should be over around noon.
Please bring water and lunch we will be stopping on the way back into the park
Riverbend Park has been more then a decade in the making and now that it is open, the 680 acre preserve is an ideal destination for hikers who want a taste of the wilds of South Florida without getting their feet wet.. More then 15 miles of interconnected trails and roads make up the Trail Network. The hiking trails are engineered broad walkways of compacted limestone and sea shells. Together, the Trail signs, Kiosks and Trail Maps make it nearly impossible to get lost. Although, It is Nature Tamed, you can see wildlife, including deer, birds and alligators. There are also miles of equestrian trails and some of the trails are shaded by tall trees. The above lower photo is of a baby alligator in the Loxahatchee River that I took on a previous hike at Riverbend.
Directions: I-95 Exit 87B or Turnpike Exit 116 West which is Indiantown Rd. Continue west on Indiantown Rd. about a mile to the park entrance on the left side.
