This is a beautiful paved path shared with pedestrians along the Intracoastal, with the option to come back the same way on the trail, ride a little bit by the ocean and mansions, and finish on the trail as you see in this route.
The Lake Trail starts at Royal Palm Way and the Intracoastal in Palm Beach (S Lake Trail, Palm Beach, FL 33480).
You ride along the Intracoastal, with beautiful views of West Palm Beach. At the first mile, on your right, you will see a big tree with beautiful roots, the Seagull Cottage(Palm Beach's oldest house ), and the Flagler Museum.
Pass the museum, cross the street and keep riding North on the asphalt sidewalk. Turn left on Royal Poinciana Way and follow the path under the bridge. On your right, you can find a clean restroom at the beautiful Bradley Park.
You leave the trail when you arrive at the Sail Fish Club of Florida. You turn left on N Lake Way and keep riding North around amazing gardens and homes (some famous people own houses here, like, Bon Jovi and Howard Stern). When you reach Indian Road. You turn right and make a left on N Ocean Blvd. Ride one block to the little park dock. You can rest, take pictures, and see some fish or manatees in the wintertime. You can see the Peanut Island Park, the Singer Island bridge, and the West Palm Beach Port.
Here is the U-turn point.
Restrooms at the beautiful Bradley Park.
You can come back the same way on the trail, ride a little bit by the ocean and mansions, and finish on the trail as you see in this route.
Ride South on the N Ocean Blvd, with a view of the ocean on your left in some areas. Turn left on the Country Club Road and make a right on N Lake Way; stay on this road for a while: you can see a giant ant sculpture on your left(on the block between Via Tortuga and Via Las Brisas).
Turn right on Dunbar Road and make a left on Lake Trail. Keep riding South on the trail until you reach Royal Palm Way, where you started. You can find excellent restaurants and places to eat a block away. Usually, when I bring my out-of-town guests to ride this trail, they all love it.
