Volunteering With
The Florida Trail Association

The only thing we love more than trails is volunteers! Volunteers are the heart and soul of the Florida Trail Association. Every year, hundreds of people from Florida and across the nation and even the world contribute thousands of hours to building and maintaining the Florida Trail! Our volunteers make generous contributions of their time and resources to help preserve the trail for the enjoyment of future generations.
