Runner Notes

Expect well maintained, straightline trails. Alligators are prevalent. Portions of the neighboring Apoxee Trail likely to be flooded during wet season (spring-summer-fall).

Description

The Owahee Trail Alternate is a raised gravel maintenance/control road that runs through Grassy Waters water catchment area. The trail is well maintained and runs through a preserved wetland area, which provides habitat for wildlife such as raccoons, egrets, hawks, deer, and alligators.

There are several parking areas that provide access to the Owahee Trail and extensions—Jog Road north of Okeechobee, 45th Street west of the turnpike, and SWA (Solid Waste Authority) office on Jog Road south of the Beeline.

Combinations with the full Owahee Trail and other trail spurs provide access to approximately 15 miles of trails that extend through the wetland area as far out as the SR7 extension north of Okeechobee Blvd in Royal Palm Beach to the Beeline Highway in Palm Beach Gardens.

Flora & Fauna

Native Florida wetland vegetation and various native animals such as deer, hawks, herons, egrets, raccoons, and alligators can be found here.
