In fact, just across the street from Marina del Palma, you can walk on over to Graham Preserve.

Beyond our own neighborhood, Flagler County is filled with trails for all levels of fitness and interest. For the easy ride, the tranquil and level Lehigh Trail is a stretch of repurposed railroad corridor that extends approximately 8 miles from east to west, parallel to the Lehigh Canal with some of the best scenery in the county. There is also the St. Joe Walkway/Linear Park which is perfect for cyclists, runners and walkers and offers tremendous views of the Intracoastal Waterway.
For a more adventurous ride, there is the famous 7-mile Graham Swamp trail, which offers varied elevations with technical rock gardens, climbs and many drops. Additionally, the Mala Compra trail offers a slower ride with varied elevations, tight turns, and quick descents around several natural springs.
