Public Trails for Hiking and Biking

Providing access for public recreation is an important part of the Land Trust's mission and vision. Since 1990, IRLT has been able to preserve and protect 1,200 acres and more than 12 miles of Indian River Lagoon shoreline. Within those protected properties, IRLT is pleased to be able to provide residents with two public trails to enjoy.


Lagoon Greenway

Lagoon Greenway Public Trail Open Daily - Dawn to Dusk

*A public-private partnership between Indian River County and the Land Trust.

Located on the northeast corner of 8th Street, on Indian River Boulevard in Vero Beach.

Lagoon Greenway Lagoon Greenway boasts an ecologically diverse three- mile trail system for hiking, jogging or bicycling. The trailhead parking area lies under a broad canopy of live oaks draped with Spanish moss. The trail winds its way through the oak hammock and a forest of cabbage palms before arriving at the mangroves. A boardwalk offers a shaded glimpse into a mangrove forest on the way to a Lagoon overlook. This out-and-back hike is one mile. For those seeking more exercise, try the long loop trail that offers 2.5-3 miles of walking or biking.

There is also a short Mini-Adventure trail, which offers a more intimate nature experience along a single-lane trail through the shaded oak hammock. Bicycles and leashed dogs are welcome! Click here to download the Lagoon Greenway Trail map.
