Hike 2O - 2022
Friday, March 4 - Sunday, March 6
Join Us for the Third Annual Hike2o Event!
Grab your pack and gather your camping essentials for Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s Annual Hike2O. The three-day, 2-night backcountry benefit will be held Friday, March 4th, 2022 - Sunday, March 6th, 2022, where 45 Hikers will hike 33 miles on the Ocean to Lake Hiking Trail, led by LMC staff and trail guides from the Florida Trail Association – Loxahatchee Chapter. Along the trail, LMC/FTA will host nightly 'conservation conversations' about Florida's native flora & fauna, with a focus on the importance of water in our lives.
Hike2O is not an easy undertaking, campsites are primitive and trail conditions and weather can make the hike challenging. Prior backpacking experience especially in Florida is strongly recommended before attempting Hike2O. Those without prior backpacking experience are encouraged to participate in a Hike2O 1-Day Challenge anytime over the main event weekend. This is an excellent option for individuals to still support Loggerhead Marinelife Center’s marine educational outreach efforts and still receive the Hike2O event participation t-shirt, certificate of completion and virtual finishers award.
The annual Hike2O event is a fundraiser for LMC's Oceans of Opportunity initiative, raising funds through hiker registration and event sponsorships.
