Come join us for a 5.5 mile hike on a section of the FNST between East Bay Bridge boat ramp and where the FNST crosses Highway 87. We will meet at the north end of the bridge and shuttle to the Hwy 87 crossing. Lunch will follow at East River Smokehouse - mighty fine BBQ!
IMPORTANT! Because this section is largely on Eglin AFB, you MUST have an Eglin Recreation pass ($7) which can be purchased at the Jackson Guard, 107 Highway 85, Niceville, FL (850) 882-4164. IF you are unable to get the pass, contact me PRIOR to Friday, June 13.
This activity is offered by the volunteers of the Western Gate Chapter, Florida Trail Association. Visitors are welcome to participate and will be offered an opportunity to join FTA, a volunteer organization that maintains and promotes the Florida National Scenic Trail, a 1,300 mile hiking trail. Membership brochures will be available.
A donation jar will also be available for those who wish to help support efforts to build and maintain the FNST and related hiking trails in Florida.
