Mission Statement

The mission of the Florida Trail Association is to develop, maintain, promote, and protect a continuous public hiking trail the length of the state of Florida, called the Florida National Scenic Trail, and other side and loop trails, together called the Florida Trail System; and to educate the public by teaching appreciation for and conservation of the natural beauty of Florida; and to provide opportunities to hike and camp.

Description

The Florida Trail Association was incorporated in 1964 and began building and marking trail in 1966. In 1983 the trail was designated by congress as a National Scenic Trail and joined seven other such trails in the United States. Currently there are approximately 5,500 volunteers who build and maintain a wilderness hiking trail of 1,400 miles as well as associated connector, side and loop hiking trails of about another 1,000 miles throughout Florida.
