Lake Trail Description

The Lake Trail is located in Palm Beach and travels north to south along a paved path that is adjacent to Lake Worth and the boat docks. Most off the trail is off the main road but there is some street crossing in the southern portion of the ride. Users will be able to enjoy some shade from the trees lining the route and can easily veer off to any of the nearby schools, shops, and restaurants. Nicknamed the Trail of Conspicuous Consumption,  you can get some good looks at the beautiful mansions in this upscale area. A water fountain is available at the northern end though it wouldn’t hurt to bring some with you if heading south. This trail will not disappoint those looking for an easy going and relaxing ride with a great view along the way.

Lake Trail Reviews

Free 2 hour parking on the street, BESIDE Flagler Museum. Trail is marked in that area but signage when riding it is overall poor. There are a few " breaks" in the trail but it goes from Worth Ave on the south to the Inlet on the north.
It follows ( usually right on the water) of Lake Worth (the intercostal waterway). If you loose track of the trail because of no signs, just continue to take streets toward the intercostal and the trail will re-appear.
It is about 5.5 miles long. It ends before the Inket but a couple blocks of back streets will get you there. There is a drinking fountain at the Inlet (dock) but no public restrooms anywhere. Where the trail crosses Poinciana Blvd. there is a shopping complex (look for the valet parking). In that complex is a deli called Too-Jays Deli. You can eat lunch there and use the restrooms.
The 2 hour parking time is plenty of time to ride the whole trail.

Rented a Skybike in West Palm Beach, crossed the causeway, and rode this trail. It is absolutely beautiful with all of the mansions on one side and the Intracoastal on the other. Very easy ride. Water fountain available at the southern end at Sunset Avenue.
Word of caution: lack of northbound signage and the construction at Flagler Bridge makes the trail difficult to find for a few blocks. Make a left onto Sunset to continue the trail. Southbound signage is much better.

Took a pic of the sunset from a beautiful paved portion that extends half a mile. After crossing the bridge, enjoyed paved brick portion that was surprisingly smooth. If I had remembered my ID, I would have enjoyed myself a beer. Not a great place to get in a had core workout for inline skating or biking...but fantastic for jogging/walking/site seeing.
