Pace: There may be activities when the group is either slower or faster than your current ability.

Our desire is not to leave anyone, however there have been times when it is in the best interest of all to split up. Please do your part by knowing your own abilities, communicating with the organizer head of time if you would like to start early and have us catch up or fine with finishing on your own.
Summary

Riverbend Park, in northern Palm Beach County is a preserved historic site.  It was the setting in January 1838, of two battles during the Second Seminole War, and later saw the first attempts at homesteading in South Florida.  The plan is to hike approximately 3 to 4 miles on a combination of trails (Reese, Farmstead, Indian Camp, Riverbend) that will take us through the various restored sites, such as a pioneer farmstead, a Seminole village, wetlands, and scrub pine forests.  This should be an easy walk, with plenty of shaded areas.  However, there will be some open areas where the sun will shine through, so bring a hat, sunscreen, and plenty of water.  Afterwards, if we are hungry, we can all retire to the ever popular Guanabana's Restaurant/Bar in Jupiter, for refreshments.  Their Happy Hour (appetizers are half price) is from 3 to 6.

Driving directions to the location and spot to meet at:

There is plenty of free parking just inside the entrance to the park.  We will meet by the information billboard near the comfort station where the bathrooms are located.

Directions from I-95.  Take exit 87B, and go west on Indiantown Road (Rt. 706) for about 1.6 miles.  The entrance to the park will be on your left, or south side of the road.
