“Great walk along the water”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

The lake trail is one of the best things about Palm Beach. It can get busy with so many joggers, cyclists, pedestrians, and families walking their dogs, but then again, that is a big part of the appeal. It is so nice to have a place to get some exercise without the fear of being run over by one of the MANY terrible drivers in Florida.

“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
