Welcome to our Meetup Group

for hikers in Florida's central panhandle!

The purpose of this meetup group is to introduce you to the Florida Trail and the Panhandle Chapter of the Florida Trail Association (FTA), and to encourage you to become an FTA member.

Please consider becoming a member of the Florida Trail Association!

(Note that meetup membership is not the same as FTA membership!)

Membership in the FTA requires a small annual fee, but entitles you to many benefits:  the FTA newsletter called the Footprint, the monthly Chapter newsletter called Panhandle News, access to our "members-only" activities, and free training such as First Aid, GPS, and chainsaw training and certification.  But most important, FTA membership is your opportunity to support the goals and ideals of the Florida Trail Association.

To become a member of the FTA, talk to a friendly Chapter member at one of our meetings.  Or you can go to the FTA website, www.floridatrail.org .  From there, go to the FTA Store, then Memberships.

The Chapter is responsible for maintaining the part of the Florida National Scenic Trail that passes through Blountstown and Pine Log State Forest, and along Econfina Creek. The FTA Panhandle Chapter covers Bay, Holmes, Washington, Jackson, Gulf, and Calhoun Counties.

The Panhandle Chapter hosts monthly meetings featuring nature programs, and plans several outdoor activities each month of interest to all ages. 

Our Chapter meets on the first Monday of each month at 6:30 PM.  We meet in the Community Room on the first floor of the five-story Hancock Bank building at 1022 W. 23rd St, Panama City (the old People's First building).  Park and enter in the rear.  Join us for a social hour starting at 5:30 PM @ TGI Fridays (same building).
