We are the North Florida Trailblazers, the local chapter of the Florida Trail Association (FTA). Our main purpose is to build and maintain sections of the Florida Trail (FT) in our chapter's area. Sections are located in the Osceola National Forest, along the Suwannee River near White Springs, Mike Roess Gold Head Branch State Park and Camp Blanding. When we are not working on the FT, we organize day hikes, backpacking, paddling, and other outdoor activities.  We have chapter meetings, social events and other activities to promote hiking.  We are using Meetup to reach people interested in hiking.

We are not a social networking or dating group.  We are here to support and maintain the FT and to promote hiking in general.  But if you enjoy hiking and outdoors activites, you will certaintly meet people with shared interests.

The FT, a 1300 mile trail that runs the length of Florida, is part of the National Scenic Trails system (includes the AT and the Natchex Trace, for example).  The FT is developed, maintained, protected and promoted by the FTA and its public and private partners.

Please visit www.floridatrail.org and join the FTA to support hiking and hiking trails in Florida.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
