Hungryland Trail Day is this Saturday

One of the really great things about living in Jupiter Farms is the access to so much undeveloped land and recreational areas.  Of course, the best known is Riverbend Park but that's not all there is.  Recently Cypress Creek was opened and although not completed, will eventually connect Riverbend with Hungryland to the west.

I don't know how the John C. and Mariana Jones Hungryland Wildlife and  Environmental Area got it's name but it is 16,645 acres of some of the highest quality, undisturbed pine flatwoods remaining in South Florida.  You can hike, camp or bike along the Old Jupiter-Indiantown Road, hunt for deer, hog and other small game and fish.  This Saturday, NETA, the Northeast Everglades Trails Association, is sponsoring Hungryland Trail Day.

The organization will be hosting this event for hikers, bikers and equestrians to help encourage the public to come enjoy our great outdoors.  The event is open to the public and is free and there will be burgers and dogs on the grill at noon.  Enter the park at Gate 9.  How do you get to gate 9?

Indiantown Road west from Jupiter until you reach the flashing light at Mellen.  For those of you using GPS devices, the machine may call this 125th.  Turn right, (north if you are using GPS) and go about a mile until you see Old Indiantown Road.  Make a left and continue until you hit the big yellow gate.  This is gate 9.  Park outside the gate and then hike or bike down Old Indiantown Road into the Park.
