The Florida Trail is a 1300 mile footpath that stretches from the Big Cypress National Preserve in south Florida to Gulf Islands National Seashore in the panhandle. A thousand miles have been built. 300 miles of gaps require roadwalks that are hot, boring and dangerous. We are asking the Governor and the Florida legislature to close these gaps and complete a continuous footpath, set aside for posterity.
