We are the western most chapter of the Florida Trail Association and work and play on the trails in Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. Our purpose is to improve and preserve the trails in Florida and to have fun hiking and other out door activities. We hope that you will decide to become a card carrying FTA member after you experience a few of our activities.  If you care deeply about the enviroment and the trails across Florida becoming a FTA member will help keep the Florida Trail for future generations to enjoy.
