February is Florida’s Hiking Trails month. The Florida Department of Environmental Protection along with the Florida Trail Association is urging Floridians to celebrate the 40th Anniversary of the National Trails System Act by enjoying the hiking trails in the state this month.
February is considered a good time for Florida residents to promote environmental management by enjoying the outdoors and hiking trails the state has groomed and made available. The groups also hope to promote healthy living and a lifestyle of outdoor activity.
Activities will include the following:
February 16: A Children’s Mardi Gras Walk on the Blackwater Heritage State Trail in Milton hosted by the Blackwater Heritage Trail Citizen Support Organization
February 23: A Ride-Roll-Run relay on the Marjorie Harris Carr Cross Florida Greenway hosted by The Florida Greenways and Trails foundation, Inc.
