“Great escape and good exercise!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

We love walking this trail which gives you wonderful views of lovely homes and the intercoastal waterway. It is easy to walk out from the trail to restaurants and museums such as the Flagler and the Society of the Four Arts.

“Lake Trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012

The Lake Trail is a beautiful trail to walk, run or ride your bike. One side is the intercostal and the other side are the backyards of the houses in Palm Beach.

“A nice run -- but go early in the a.m.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I do a Lake Trail run whenever I'm staying at The Breakers -- the trailhead on Sunset Ave. is roughly a mile from the hotel. The path runs right along the Intercoastal on one side and some of Palm Beach's priciest real estate on the other. Very pretty.

The course is flat, reasonably well-lighted, and easy to follow (although the end of the trail is somewhat unclear, as I couldn't see a sign or anything).

At the Sunset Ave. trailhead, there's a water fountain that actually has a chiller -- so the water is cold. Amazing (or perhaps not, given that it's Palm Beach). Although it would be nice if there was another fountain at the other end of the trail. Just a suggestion. ;-)

I recommend getting your run in early, especially if you're there in October like I was. Too sunny/warm otherwise.

“Its fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2012

Biking riding and vacation normally are not in the same sentence for me. But we rented bikes at our hotel and really enjoyed it and made a stop at the Flagler Musuem along the away

“I love the bicycle trail”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2012

The Lake Trail, the bike path, call it what you will but it's a wonderful place to walk along the Intercoastal, see people's homes, bump into old friends (if you live in town). Palm Beach is Palm Beach and this is a nice part of it.
