Focused on the natural beauty of the Florida Trail, this small format 7×5″ hardcover coffee table book is an ideal keepsake to remind you of the panoramas and small wonders you’ll see when hiking our statewide National Scenic Trail.
Spanning more than 1,400 miles along the Florida Trail, this full color book is presented in a linear fashion northbound, starting with Big Cypress National Preserve and ending at Gulf Islands National Seashore. It is divided into geographic sections, each with a brief introduction.
Trail founder Jim Kern supplies the foreword, and full captions and locations of photos are provided in the back of the book.
Ideal as a gift, a keepsake, or a conversation starter to interest your friends in Florida’s outdoors, the book showcases Florida’s outstanding natural diversity through the photography of Sandra Friend and John Keatley.
Having completed an end-to-end hike of the Florida Trail in 2019, Sandra wanted to produce a new book designed to get more people interested in hiking the Florida Trail by showing, rather than telling, why the Florida National Scenic Trail is a truly unique destination in the National Trails System.
