Florida Hiking Trails Month


As the Pensacola News Journal reports, Florida Governor Charlie Crist February designated February as Florida Hiking Trails Month.  I love hiking, but I do not get many opportunities these days.  However, with the governor's encouragement, Wendy and I may take a walk in the woods here soon.  A number of sylvan retreats lie within a short drive, including PJC-Milton's fabulous disc golf course.  Of course, it would be very fitting to actually hike to a good hiking spot, but not from our urban setting.  The Florida Trail Association is hosting a number of events statewide.  They even have an annual conference!  Are you required to walk?

Hi, Bill! You have plenty of great places near home to take a hike. Check out the Panhandle section of www.floridahikes.com for details ... Tarkiln Bayou, Clear Creek, Garcon Point, and Juniper Creek are some of my personal favorites.

Cheers, Sandra Friend
