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.

Note from Elizabeth: 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!
