State Road 809 (SR 809), locally known as Military Trail, is a six-lane divided highway which, like the nearby similar north–south State Road 811 and State Road 807, serves the dual purposes of commuting alternatives to the Florida's Turnpike and Interstate 95 (State Road 9). The road currently runs from an intersection with Lake Worth Road (SR 802) in Greenacres north to an intersection with PGA Boulevard (SR 786) in Palm Beach Gardens.

SR 809 begins at the intersection of Military Trail and US 98/SR 80 (Southern Boulevard) in a diamond interchange. For the next mile, SR 809 acts as the western border of Palm Beach International Airport, until intersecting with Belvedere Road. One mile north of the northern end of the airport, it intersects SR 704 (Okeechobee Boulevard), a major intersection in the city. Continuing north, Military Trail passes by Northwood University to the east, and north of Community Drive, SR 809 becomes a service road for housing developments. Following an intersection with CR 702 (45th Street), SR 809 leaves West Palm Beach and enters Rivera Beach. There, it intersects with SR 710 (Bee Line Highway/Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Boulevard) diagonally and at SR 708 (Blue Heron Boulevard), at the outskirts of the West Palm Beach VA Medical Center Continuing into Palm Beach Gardens, SR 809 ends at PGA Boulevard (SR 786).

State Road 809 was formerly 40.7 miles (65.5 km) long, extending from Palmetto Park Road (CR 798) in Boca Raton to Indiantown Road (SR 706) in Jupiter). The road was converted to county roads in 2004 with the exception of the section between Southern Boulevard and PGA Boulevard.
County Road 809
|Location:||Boca Raton–West Palm Beach, Palm Beach Gardens–Jupiter|
County Road 809 consists of two sections, which were both sections of SR 809 until 2004.
The southern section of CR 809 begins at Palmetto Park Road (CR 798) in Boca Raton and continues for more than 19 miles to Southern Boulevard in West Palm Beach. Military Trail continues further south past CR 798 into Broward County (without FDOT or County designation) until its southern terminus at Sample Road (State Road 834), which serves as the boundary between Deerfield Beach and Pompano Beach. The road continues as Andrews Avenue Extension into Pompano Beach, connecting to Andrews Avenue (via a connector built in the 2000s) leading through Fort Lauderdale.
The northern section begins at the northern terminus of SR 809, PGA Boulevard, and continues just under 10 miles north to SR 706 (Indiantown Road) in Jupiter.
The entire route is in Palm Beach County.
