The first requirement is that you be a Florida Trail Association member.  The 
trail crosses private land that only members have permission to hike across.

Secondly, you will have to contact the State office in Gainesville at least a 
week before you reach the Deseret Ranch to obtain specific permission to 
cross that property.

As to water, if you aren't picky, there are plenty of sources.  
Unfortunately, many of the best campsites are dry, so bring a water bag and 
be prepared to lug a gallon several miles a day.  Be prepared to filter.

I know of no source for digital maps of the Trail.

Feel free to send me specific questions privately.

Finally, welcome to our happy little group of Florida Trail lovers!

Happy trails,

Rich Evans
