Planning a Florida Trail Hike?

Sandy & John on the Florida Trail, Seminole State ForestWith more than 45 years of experience of hiking the Florida Trail between us, we’re here to help. We know that Florida provides a very different hiking experience than everywhere else in the United States, and you need to be prepared for it. You won’t have to worry about elevation gain, but you will have to tangle with humidity, winter weather extremes, tough-on-feet surfaces, and seasonal wading.

Our guidebook, The Florida Trail Guide, provides logistics for planning those long hikes. We also feature plenty of Florida Trail day hikes here on our website. We’ve produced an app that is an interactive version of the guide with built-in offline mapping. Section or thru-hiking? Check out more details here.
