Join us on one of the most scenic sections of the FNST. We'll be meeting at the Bell Springs Trailhead and taking the trail east towards Big Shoals. Big Shoals is the only Class III rapids in Florida. Depending on how well things are going we hope to relocate to maintain the section between US41 and Suwannee River Campground for a total distance of about 5 miles (per the data book). Exact route subject to change.
Bring your cameras and snacks! There are several benches available at the Big Shoals campsite if you need to take a break. Please try to be at the trailhead as close to the posted time as possible.
What is a work hike?
This is a hike where we trim and mow the trail, clear downed trees, and perform any cleanup duties to make sure the trail is in good hiking shape. The goal is to clear any obstructions that might impede a hiker's progress and to ensure a pleasant outdoor experience. Please read What Is a Work Hike? and the Basic Trail Maintenance Guide.

You can reach the trailhead from either US441 or US41. Take either to NW Lassie Black St. and turn north onto NW Morrell Dr. Follow Morrell until it dead-ends in a parking area at the trailhead.
