overview

Description:

This segment on the Gold Coast features a wealth of historical sites, state parks and aquatic preserves. After eleven miles of paddling through Lake Worth and past developments, golf courses and marinas, you'll reach Peanut Island. The 86-acre site offers camping, nature trails, a maritime museum and best of all, the John F Kennedy Bunker, constructed as a temporary command post during the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962. Three miles north of Peanut Island is the John D. MacArthur Beach State Park, featuring a unique mixture of coastal and tropical hammock and mangrove forest on a barrier island. Here the ICW bears left and narrows for a long stretch before opening up into the Loxahatchee River and eventually into the Jupiter Inlet. The segment terminates at the expansive Jonathan Dickinson State Park and River Campground.
