Overseas Heritage TrailAfter only partially accomplishing our research in the Florida Keys in June, we made plans to return in cooler weather to be able to complete a bike ride along the length of the Florida Keys Overseas Heritage Trail. On the way, we did a loop around Lake Okeechobee to check on current Florida Trail conditions before heading south to launch our explorations in the Florida Keys and South Dade.
