overview

Description:

This paved and off-road trail circles the second largest freshwater lake in the United States, Lake Okeechobee. The trail is located atop the Herbert Hoover Dike, which surrounds the lake for flood protection, built in the 1930s. The trail takes users near and through communities that are at the heart of agriculture in this part of the state, such as Clewiston and Belle Glade. The area affords opportunities for viewing wildlife, particularly in fall and winter, when birds such as herons, egrets and a variety of wintering waterfowl are abundant, and fishing opportunities are limitless.

Note: Portions of the trail are temporarily closed while water control structures around the dike are being rehabilitated. Updates are available on the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ website: http://www.saj.usace.army.mil/Divisions/Operations/Branches/SFOO/recreation_trails.htm, or contact the South Florida Operations Office of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers at (863) 983-8101.
