What we're about

The Tropical Trekkers group is a chapter of the Florida Trail Association drawing members from Martin, St. Lucie, and Okeechobee counties. Our purpose is to maintain a section of the Florida National Scenic Trail that extends from the northern shore of Lake Okeechobee through Kissimmee Prairie Preserve State Park. We also maintain local trails in Seabranch Preserve State Park, Halpatiokee Regional Park, and the Raphael Sanchez Trail near Lake O. We also host social hikes and other events for the enjoyment of our members.

Needs a location

Come join the Tropical Trekker Chapter of the Florida Trail Association for a tour of the Growing Hope Farm. The Growing Hope Farm in Palm City is an innovative House of Hope program that uses hydroponic farming to grow fresh fruit and vegetables which are made available to low-income residents.
We will meet in the parking lot of the Palm City Farms Produce Market, 3706 SW Citrus Blvd. Palm City, 34990, at 8:30 to beat the heat. After the tour, we can visit the vegetable market and grab a nutritious snack!
Pinder’s Nursery is just up the road if you’d like to visit their butterfly garden after the House of Hope Farm!

Baseball Game - Thursday, July 28

Needs a location

Needs a location

Tropical Trekkers gives out painted rocks whenever we set up our display, so we need to replenish our supply. We'll meet in one of the open air pavilions and paint until we get hungry. You needn't be an artist. Simple designs are some of the best.
Bring a little something to set on the buffet table and join us for a relaxing get together doing something productive and appreciated.
Looking forward to meeting new people. I will bring plates, forks, paper towels and tablecloths. You should bring a snack to share and whatever you'd like to drink. Take the first right off the traffic circle. We'll be at the pavilion with the checkered tablecloths.
