Resources for Florida Trail hikers

After 50 years, the Florida Trail – one of eleven congressionally-designated National Scenic Trails – is still a work in progress. Our nonprofit mission is to educate you about our statewide 1,400-mile trail, and to provide resources to assist you in planning your hikes on the Florida Trail.
