Next Meetup

Losco Regional Park - Sunday Hike
We'll walk around the lake and then combine the red, white and blue trails for a 3.2 mile hike. It's a scenic spot and nice little hike. Please let me know if you are a coffee, tea or hot chocolate drinker and I'll have some there for you! If you are not already a FTA member, please consider joining. It's cheap and in addition to helping support this unique and beautiful natural resource it will make you more cool, interesting and get you invited to members-only events throughout the year. http://www.floridatrail.org/make-a-difference/become-a-member/

What we're about

Public Group

We are the North Florida Trailblazers, the local chapter of the Florida Trail Association (FTA). Our main purpose is to build and maintain sections of the Florida Trail (FT) in our chapter's area. Sections are located in the Osceola National Forest, along the Suwannee River near White Springs, Mike Roess Gold Head Branch State Park and Camp Blanding. When we are not working on the FT, we organize day hikes, backpacking, paddling, and other outdoor activities. We have chapter meetings, social events and other activities to promote hiking. We are using Meetup to reach people interested in hiking.

The FT, a 1300 mile trail that runs the length of Florida, is part of the National Scenic Trails system (includes the AT and the Continental Divide, for example). The FT is developed, maintained, protected and promoted by the FTA and its public and private partners.

We are not a social networking or dating group. We are here to support and maintain the FT and to promote hiking in general. But if you enjoy hiking and outdoors activities, you will certainly meet people with shared interests.

NOTE: Registration on this Meetup does not make you a member of the FTA. Some of our events will be offered only to FTA members. Go to www.floridatrail.org to join the FTA and learn more about our organization.
