    This trail, which is officially named the LOST or Lake Okeechobee Scenic Trail is quiet and peaceful, but can be monotonous, especially at midday, when the light is flat and the wildlife is sleeping siesta. Not all of the route is paved. Paved sections include Port Myakka to Okee-Tanti and Belle Glade to Clewiston. Other sections are dirt or gravel, smooth enough for a wider-tired bike.

    I recommend riding in the evening from Port Myakka to Okee-Tanti and back. Time this ride to watch the sunset over the Lake on the way out and the full moon rise on the way back. At Okee-Tanti, stop in at Lightsey's restaurant for some fried alligator or catfish. Do this night ride in the winter. In the summer, the bugs are epic.

    Great ride, but don't forget the hydration. There are long stretches where there are no stores and limited shade. If you are riding unsupported you need to be prepared for this.
