Ormond Scenic Loop & Trail (OSLT) is a 30+ mile double loop of roadways traversing some of the most beautiful and diverse natural scenery remaining in all of coastal central Florida.  There is ready access to the Atlantic Ocean, State, County & City parks, vistas of rivers, creeks and marshes, barrier island dunes and beach, and historic dwellings as well as museums and historic public buildings.  

All roadways are public access with no tolls.  Entrance to Tomoka State Park is free to Florida State Park Annual Pass holders.  Follow this link for daily use fees for other visitors.  Beach access via foot or bicycle is free.  Rates for daily and seasonal passes for vehicles to drive on the beach are found here

This scenic gem is kept beautiful through the efforts of a group of dedicated volunteers.  You can become a part of preserving this jewel by considering a donation to our 501(c)(3) not-for-profit.  Donate here.

2019-FDOT-Scenic-Calendar

In 2016 FDOT celebrated the 20th anniversary of the Florida Scenic Highway Program, a system placed into statute by the Florida Legislature and managed by the Florida Department of Transportation. The photo contest to commemorate that occasion continues as an annual event to highlight our 26 designated scenic highways. We hope you enjoy the beauty of our Scenic Highway system through these photographs and have an opportunity to experience oneof our highways in 2019.

Spring Trail Walk - Saturday, March 30 - 10 am

Join Don Spence, PhD in Plant Pathology & Assistant Professor of Biology at Bethune-Cookman University, for a walk through Bicentennial Park, 1850 Oceanshore Blvd, Ormond Beach.  This park was roller-chopped in 2017 to expand the existing dog park.  The expansion project was cancelled shortly after it began and the park property has been re-growing under natural circumstances for the past 16 months. 

Dr. Spence will talk about natural plant cycles and the proposed replanting project under agreement between the Pawpaw Chapter of the Florida Native Plant Society and Volusia County (OSLT is a supporting organization.) 

Contact Rob Bird with questions.  This leisurely walk takes place over unpaved surfaces with varying elevations.  Wear comfortable shoes, dress appropriately for the weather and bring water, a hat and sunscreen.  After the walk you may enjoy a picnic lunch and watch the ocean or patronize one of the many local establishments along Oceanshore Blvd (A1A.)
