2013 WINTER WEDNESDAY HIKING SERIES
By Rachael Augspurg
Winter is a great time to hike in Florida. Each Wednesday in January, February & March there will be an 7-8 mile day hike on the FNST. This is the 19th year this annual hiking series has taken place in Central Florida. The plan is to celebrate the Florida National Scenic Trail's 30 years, by hiking a portion of the FNST each winter Wednesday between Ocala National Forest and Tosohatchee WMA. We will start at the Wekiva River and HIKE ACROSS SEMINOLE COUNTY to celebrate the county's 100 years. Then we will proceed south on the FNST to SR 50. Then we will return to the Wekiva River and hike north on the FNST to the Ocala National Forest.
Mark your calendars and clear your schedule on Wednesdays so you can join the group and “HIKE ON WEDNESDAY!”
Hike 11: Seminole State Forest - Out & Back (8.5 miles). Hike the FNST from the north entrance of Seminole State Forest of SR 44 to Blackwater Creek. Meet at the north entrance parking off SR 44 (fee).
