Florida Trail 'Feels Like the A.T.'

The Scripps Treasure Coast Newspapers' web site carries an 11 February 2007 item about The Florida Trail.

Here's how it starts: "The Florida Trail, a 1,400-mile foot trail stretching from Big Cypress National Park about 40 miles west of Miami to Fort Pickens at Gulf Islands National Seashore in Pensacola Beach, feels kind of like a tropical version of the more famous Appalachian Trail. That's not a surprise, considering it was founded by a guy who hiked the Appalachian with his brother and lamented the absence of such a wonder in his native Florida."

Yep! . . . Kind of like it, except with sand and hurricanes instead of mountains and snow.
