Off the beaten path and just the place to start a one-of-a-kind and unforgettable eco-adventure.
For those looking for the ultimate in outdoor eco-experience in The Palm Beaches, the 110-mile Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail can be walked, hiked, mountain biked, rollerbladed or traveled by horseback. The Trail is known by many as LOST, but don’t worry – you won’t actually get lost! Three camping areas are available in The Palm Beaches’ portion of LOST, one in Pahokee, Belle Glade and in South Bay. Most of the Trail is on top of the 35-foot high Herbert Hoover Dike. Its height allows for excellent views and vistas of the lake. The Trail has a number of access points that can be used year-round, and it provides excellent opportunities for bird watching, fishing and photography. Drinking water is available on, or adjacent to, the LOST.
Or if this sounds a bit “over the top” for your day of adventure, grab a basket of grub and head to Paul Rardin Park for some fishing, boating or a day with family and friends. Either way, you’ll enjoy the sights, sounds and scenic beauty of the “big water” of Lake Okeechobee.
