The address given in a preseeding message for FTA was for their e-mail. The actual web site address is http://www.florida-trail.org
FTA is getting close to sending their new trail maps to the printers. Hopefully they will be available by the end of August for the public. Check the web site for where and when they may be ordered.
There are some nice trails due north of Tampa which would make nice weekend backpacking trips in the fall, winter and spring. Check activites for the chapters up there: Suwannee, Florida Crackers, and North Florida Trail Blazers. The only thing you have to careful about is the hunting dates.
