Jonathan Dickinson Park

One of my husband John and my favorite things to do is go up to Jonathan Dickinson Park just north of Jupiter and hike the trails.  We were up there this past Saturday; the sky clouded over for most of the day, without raining, and the temperature was a very nice 78 degrees.

This is just a wonderful natural Florida park.  There is a main loop of 9.8 miles with some tangent trails that lead to campsites.  We haven't yet, but one day we want to camp out there.

Most of the trail is soft white sand...

We have biked and kayaked in Jonathan Dickinson as well.  The park is very popular--lots of bicycling, canoeing, and kayaking; but we very seldom see others on the trails further than maybe a half mile in.

One of these days, I am going to run on the trails.  The soft sand makes the going kinda hard, so I want to have my hip/leg in a little better shape than it is now.  Soon...
