Join us in celebrating the opening of a new section of the Florida Trail in Seminole State Forest!
On November 2nd, 2019 the Florida Trail Association will hold a ribbon cutting ceremony and inaugural hike of a new constructed trail section. We are thrilled to share that this 5.3 mile reroute will remove 3.5 miles of road walk from the Florida Trail.
The event will be held at the Cassia Trailhead, located off of Brantley Branch Road, 0.1 miles east of State Road 44 in Eustis.
10:00 AM Event begins. Enjoy coffee, refreshments, pastries and fruit. We will also feature tabling displays from a few of our partner organizations.
10:15 – 10:45 AM Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
11:00 AM Hike kick off. Biologist Ralph Risch will join the hike, stopping along the way to point out distinct species and ecosystems for those interested.
