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
