Hike Through History

Discover the topography and natural history of Jupiter’s National Conservation Lands historic site on this two-mile trek through JILONA. Explore nature on the lighthouse hiking trail.

Climb & Paddle

The Climb & Paddle adventure starts at the historic Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse. The highlight is the breathtaking view from the top of the red brick lighthouse overlooking the Loxahatchee River, Atlantic Ocean and Indian River. Next is a stand up paddle board or kayak tour led by Jupiter Outdoor Center guides on the clear waters around the Jupiter Inlet. Manatees, sea turtles, egrets and other wildlife are regularly spotted.

In addition to offering the best view in Palm Beach County, we also offer some incredible scenic lighthouse tours and programming throughout the year. For a complete event schedule, please check our event calendar.

This activity is conducted under permit from the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) and occurs all or in part on public lands administered by the BLM within the Jupiter Inlet Lighthouse Outstanding Natural Area.
