FNST Western Corridor Hiking Series - Hike 3

Western Corridor Hiking Series  Hike 3  Sharpes Ferry Bridge to Santos TH

The third section in the FNST Western Corridor Hiking Series brings us into Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway.   In many places along the Greenway, aka "the Ditch", you can see evidence of the diggings from two efforts to build a canal through the state of Florida.  The first effort was an attempt to construct the Gulf-Atlantic Ship Canal in the 1930s; the second, a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers project - the Cross Florida Barge Canal - in the 1960s.  Today, the 110-mile long Greenway is a mecca for all sorts of outdoor recreation.  A good portion of these lands are actually still in their natural state. The Florida National Scenic Trail traverses the Greenway for 36 miles.  A good portion of these lands are actually still in their natural state.  

Wed. Nov. 6  Elizabeth Holland (Suncoast) w/ extra special help from Mike Mais (Florida Crackers)

We'll meet at the Santos TH and shuttle to the start of the hike. We'll need to know whether you'll be hiking 7.6 miles or 11.8 miles when you arrive - to do a proper shuttle.  Be prompt.

What to Bring:--> 60 oz. of water – for either distance. That's 3 - 20 oz. bottles or 2 quarts or 2 liters. The water is not a guideline.  This is required on this hike.  Lunch and snacks.  Sunscreen and bug spray are optional.

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
