Florida Trail Association
Central Florida Chapter
Serving Orange, Seminole and Osceola Counties
The Central Florida Chapter of the Florida Trail Association was chartered in 1981 and is one of FTA’s largest chapters with more than 500 members. We maintain over 60 miles of the Florida National Scenic Trail, along with trails in Wekiwa Springs State Park, and Little Big Econ and Charles Bronson State Forests.
Our active members lead and participate in many hiking, biking, paddling, camping and trail maintenance activities. Each Thanksgiving we have a group camping event at a state park or forest and each New Years we “retreat” to the Ocala National Forest for a fun-filled camp out and celebration.
Upcoming Trail Maintenance:
TBA: Two bridge building projects.
Scheduled maintenance of the Florida Trail in the Central Florida Chapter's area has been completed for the 2023/2024 hiking season. A giant Thank You to all of the folks who joined us this season for trail maintenance!
Stay tuned for two bridge repair work parties in the near future!
