Historic Jungle Trail

The Historic Jungle trail winds for nearly 8 miles along a sandy road through the hammock habitat of Florida's barrier islands north of Vero Beach. The trail—really a road—is on the National Register of Historic Places and was built in the 1920s so that citrus growers could haul their produce up and down the barrier island. Although cars do drive along the road, it's mostly used by cyclists, walkers, and joggers. The road is sandy but mostly hard packed and easy going for wide-tire bicycles. To reach the northern access point and parking: From the intersection of Wabasso Road (CR 510) and SR A1A, drive north 3.7 miles on A1A; you will see a sign on the right indicating Pelican Island Wildlife Refuge; turn left onto the road marked Historic Jungle Trail.

    Dirt Road Trail

    This is a long dirt road. Much of the road is covered in shade in the morning and later afternoon. Although cars do travel on the road, it is not a high traffic area. My dog loves to walk this road because much of it is close to the river and he loves chasing the little crabs. We take him walking here year round.
