The DuPuis Management Area is a 21,875-acre multi-use natural area located in northwestern Palm Beach and southwestern Martin counties. The property is interspersed with numerous ponds, wet prairies, cypress domes, pine flatwoods and remnant Everglades marsh. The area provides miles of hiking and horseback trails, an equestrian center, graded vehicle roads, backpack and group campsites and seasonal hunting. DuPuis is far from urban areas, and its dark night sky lends itself to excellent stargazing.
Come and explore the nature center with interpretive displays, or walk the nature trail and butterfly garden. Other activities include fishing from the partially covered pier, hiking along the Cypress boardwalk, picnicking or enjoying primitive group and family camping. There are 22 miles of hiking trails, including a segment of the Ocean to Lake Trail, and an equestrian campground with access to 40 miles of horseback riding trails. Special events or programs such as stargazing may be offered during the cooler months. Learn about these by calling (561) 924-5310.
