Florida Trail Association volunteers worked on a new section of the Florida National Scenic Trail set to open in June, 2014. My role was to understand and document the process.
In the video, on the opening day hike, questions arise about how the trail got here, where did it come from? After showing what it took to construct, build, cut, and clear the trail corridor, flashbacks explore eight steps constituting 80% of the total work going on for the last five years. Starting in 2009, Tom Daniel and other volunteers from the FTA Choctawhatchee chapter seeded the idea in their contact with Eglin AFB, who owns the land.
