The Lake to Ocean (L20) is without a doubt the best scenic trail in South Florida. An Iconic trail that traverses from the east end of Lake Okeechobee all the way to the Atlantic Ocean. An official offshoot of the Florida Trail, the L2O trail runs nearly a perfect 100k. It is overseen by the Loxahatchee Chapter of the Florida Trail Association. This is without a doubt the most diverse and scenic trail in all of south Florida. It passes through 6 official management areas, DuPuis WMA, J.W. Corbett's WMA, Hungryland Slough NA, Loxahatchee Slough NA, Riverbend Park, Cypress Creek NA and Jonathan Dickinson State Park. The trail is marked by orange blazes both eastbound and westbound. The trail passes through farm fields, Florida pine forests, deep water logged cypress stands, sand dunes and it all culminates at the beach! Often times large sections of the trail are drowned in calf deep water, and very little shade can be found outside of the cypress stands, a true south Florida challenge!
