Printed Circumnavigational Trail Guide Now Available
The first printed trail guide for the 1,515-mile Florida Circum?navigational Saltwater Paddling Trail (text only) is now available on Amazon.com. The 276-page guide includes in?formation on launches, campsites, campgrounds, motels, points of interest, and the many public lands along the route. A trail data book, equipment list, trip tips and planning instructions are also included. Color maps will still have to be downloaded from the Office of Greenways and Trails (OGT) Web site: www.FloridaGreenwaysAndTrails.com.
OGT put together this printed guide as a service to alleviate the need for paddlers to download and print 26 different segment guides and other information from the OGT Web site. Because a print-on-demand Amazon company is be?ing used, the trail guide can be updated periodically. The guide is not available at retail outlets, only on Amazon. All proceeds from the sale of the guide are transferred directly to the non-profit Florida Paddling Trails Association to help support their work as a volunteer stew?ard of the trail and other paddling trails statewide.
