The Florida Trail (Florida National Scenic Trail) is a congressionally designated National Scenic Trail.  It is approximately 1,300-miles long and is intended to offer a continuous, permanent non-motorized recreation opportunity for hiking and other compatible activities. Over its length, it showcases the incredible biodiversity, history, and rich culture of Florida.  Its termini lie in Gulf Islands National Seashore to the North and Big Cypress National Preserve to the South.   It is one of 11 congressionally designated national scenic trails.  Florida Trail Association is the leading non-profit volunteer organization that builds, maintains, and protects the Florida Trail.  Florida Trail Association is committed to preserving the Florida Trail as a scenic hiking trail which showcases the diversity of Florida’s ecosystems wherever possible. There are however many sections of the Florida Trail that are well developed, have modern facilities, and can accommodate a broader range of users including children, bicyclists, and people with accessibility needs. Florida Trail Association supports and encourages all people to get outdoors and recreate responsibly on the Florida Trail. Check out the regional links above for more specific information on each section including a narrative description, land management information, and more on what you can expect to find on each section.
