Hiking with Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail
The Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail (LOST) began as the Okeechobee Segment of the Florida Trail. The hiking trail was planned and made popular by its parent organization, the Florida Trail Association. In 1993, the Okeechobee Segment of the Florida Trail was dedicated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service as a segment of the FNST. As time went on, the popular name for the trail became the "LOST" trail. Some folks are still looking for a more noble or elegant name. Others like the romantic notion of getting LOST for the weekend on the Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail.
