Florida Trail Volunteer Information

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Florida Trail Association! We’re happy to have you be part of this great project.

The Florida National Scenic Trail is one of many scenic trails in the nation (a few others being the Appalachian Trail, the Pacific Crest Trail and the Continental Divide Trail). It runs 1400 miles from Pensacola down to the Everglades. The sections that we’re mostly working on will be right here in Wakulla County!

Historically, this trail has been created and maintained entirely by volunteers, and as you could imagine, this trail will continue to need that support. That being said, our goal for this fall is to involve more local community members in the longevity of this trail.

What we need from volunteers, either individuals or groups, is a few hours to join us on the trail for some great outdoor work! This includes using hand tools for cutting brush, picking up fallen branches, and hiking. You can either choose an appropriate day for your organization, or come out on your own with our regular Florida Trail Association volunteers. We’re available nearly everyday!

We provide all the necessary resources such as tools, equipment, and most importantly, safety gear. All you need to bring is yourself, water, lunch and anything else you think you may need for the day.

If you’d like any more information or would like to sign up with us, please e-mail sca.floridatrail@gmail.com.
