Lake Okeechobee

Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail LOST

Get LOST along 110 miles of hiking trail that encircles “Lake O” – The second largest freshwater lake in the contiguous United States. Designated as part of the Florida National Scenic Trail in 1993, more than half of the trail is paved, and the remainder consists of a two-track gravel roadway on top of the 35-foot-high Herbert Hoover Dike. There are numerous locations for access by hikers and bikers, as well as equestrians.
In partnership with Hendry-Glades Audubon, the South Florida Water Management District offers escorted birding tours at the South Florida Birding Trail. STA5 is ranked one of the best bird watching areas in the country.

Spirt of the Wild

At its core is a network of nearly 500 sites throughout Florida selected for their excellent bird watching, wildlife viewing or educational opportunities. This 2,000-mile, self-guided highway trail is designed to conserve and enhance Florida's wildlife habitats by promoting bird watching and wildlife viewing activities, conservation education and economic opportunity.
Larger acreage and mix of wetlands and uplands create outstanding wildlife viewing. Part of the Great Florida Birding Trail offers fishing, hiking, cycling, camping, hunting, horseback riding and scenic driving.
This is an excellent area to view wildlife year-round. This area is part of the Great Florida Birding Trail and offers fishing, hiking, biking, horseback riding and scenic driving.

Okaloacoochee Slough State Forest
Florida Division of Forestry
850/ 488-4274


Encompassing nearly 35,000 acres mostly in Hendry County, the slough extends northward to the Caloosahatchee River and southward about 50 miles into Big Cypress Swamp. There are 39 miles of trails open for wildlife viewing, hiking, non-motorized biking, and horseback riding. It is also designated as part of the Great Florida Birding Trail and host the annual Big “O” Birding Festival in March.
Starry, starry nights. You don’t need a telescope to stargaze around Lake O, just good weather. Walk out on the dike and you’ll see thousands of stars.
