A roster of known closures along the Florida Trail and what to do when you reach them when you are hiking the trail.
Stretching 1,400 miles across Florida from the edge of the Everglades to the wave-washed shores of Pensacola Beach, the Florida Trail is our National Scenic Trail, a public resource for Floridians and visitors to hike. More than half the length of the Appalachian Trail, it crosses two time zones and provides access points at trailheads within an hour of most Floridians.
The Florida National Scenic Trail is managed by the USDA Forest Service and built and maintained by the volunteers of the Florida Trail Association. We work with both organizations as well as others. Our mission is to encourage more hikers to experience the trail and to connect you with the resources you need to enjoy the Florida Trail.
