Jonathan Dickinson State Park Trail is a 4 mile moderately trafficked loop trail located near Hobe Sound, Florida that features beautiful wild flowers and is good for all skill levels. The trail offers a number of activity options and is accessible year-round.
Great trail but not much variation in terrain or scenery.
Well maintained trails. Lots of great people to meet! We try to go a couple a times a mont.
very fast course...trail has had a make-over...looking super nice. Loose sand is being covered... not as much of a problem as in the past...so I am told. rode with my 11 year old and we sailed through it...and will be back for sure.
Nice trail for Florida. I completed the five mile loop that passes by a lake, through some pine and palm scrub. Saw a tortoise. Very peaceful, nice view of stars at night and some hills which are a rare find here. I also paddle boarded one day, saw many shark and fish. Would definitely recommend if you in the area.
Trail is great...sugar sand it's kind of hard to hike with your backpack full of camping gear but overall great place to stay overnight!
The mtb trails near the front of the park shouldn't be confused with the FL Trail & multi purpose trails mostly west of the RR tracks. There are about 8 miles of mtb trails here for all skill levels. As of July 2014 major improvements have been made to help the sand problem and more help is on the way. There is a pump track at the trail head for warm up and now a ~0.5 mile kids trail is in the works. Also, there is a practice skills area at the trailhead.
Some trail features you will encounter are palmetto roots, wood bridge(s), small logovers, short drops & climbs, man made berms, sand ladders, etc.
This trail never floods and is best ridden after a rain event. There is an outhouse at the trailhead but no water source. The trail is ridden counter-clockwise.
This trail goes from desert-like sugar sand dunes (some of the only non-flat hiking in South Florida) through pine flatwoods and beside the Loxihatchee River. Not as much wildlife as Everglades or Big Cypress, but still quite a bit. Two Florida-only species are found here: the Florida Scrub Jay and the Florida Scrub Lizard. If you're interested in hiking in Florida check out the Florida Trail Association, they have chapters in most counties and numerous group hikes.
