Martin County US Route 1 Sidepath Description

The Martin County US Route 1 Sidepath offers a straight, paved pathway paralleling the west side of its namesake roadway along the southeastern coast of Florida.

On its northern end, the trail stops at the doorstep to Jonathan Dickinson State Park, which has diverse environments of swampland, sand pine scrub, pine flatwoods, and mangroves that teem with wildlife. In addition to hiking, biking, and equestrian trails, visitors can enjoy boating, canoeing, kayaking, and fishing on the scenic Loxahatchee River, which runs through the park. Campgrounds are also available.

On the trail’s southern end, Tequesta County Park is just a short distance away (follow SE County Line Road westward until you get there). In the park, travelers will find restrooms and picnic tables, as well as athletic facilities for tennis, basketball, and baseball.

Although just over 2 miles, the pathway is part of a larger network called the East Coast Greenway that connects multi-use trails from Florida to Maine.

Parking and Trail Access

On the trail’s northern end, parking is available in Jonathan Dickinson State Park (16450 S.E. Federal Highway, Hobe Sound) for a nominal fee. Near the trail’s southern end, parking and restrooms are available in Tequesta County Park (2280 County Line Road), located just west of the trail.

Martin County US Route 1 Sidepath Reviews

Sidepath review

As per previous review, basically a large sidewalk along US 1. But to the west there is some wild vegetation especially on the north end along the park. Staying at a hotel (Jupiter Waterfront Inn) on the south end of trail so was nice to be able to pick up the trail within feet of the hotel and not have to run on US 1!

Short paved path with rough sections

This path is really just a sidewalk. The section along the highway is 6 (maybe 8) feet wide, but the section along County Line Road is just 3 feet wide.

There are 2 parts where the concrete has been replaced with some type of rough concrete material. There is a warning sign before you hit these sections, but there is no way to avoid them other than the highway. It was tough on our Trikkes but if we had been on something with small, hard wheels, like inline skates, it would have been awful.

Because it was sunset, we didn't have time to explore the sidewalks along North Old Dixie Highway, but from our car it looked like a nice sidewalk system that would be great for inline skates or Trikkes.
