Wed. Feb. 26 - Mike Nelson
We continue south on the Western Corridor of the Florida National Scenic Trail through the Green Swamp West from Ranch Road to the MacNeil Entrance on SR 471. We will meet at 8:30 AM and shuttle to Ranch Road to begin the day's hike!
This is the last hike in this series led by the Suncoast Chapter. The fifteenth and final hike of the series will be led by David Waldrop and others from the Heartland Chapter: 13 miles through the Green Swamp East.
From our (Suncoast) Chapter - I want to thank Karen Hill, Mike Nelson, Gordy Hawkins, Amanda Hus, Linda Dawson and Mitch Almon for their outstanding leadership with the hikes.
Thanks to following people from other FTA Chapters. These folks led hikes, did maintenance, shuttled cars and told some wild stories!
