Florida Trail: CRS N Work Day 11-11-2016

The Choctawhatchee River Section (CRS) of the Florida National Scenic Trail (FNST) is nearing completion. Florida Trail Association (FTA) volunteers have worked on it for eight years. On November 11, 2016 we mowed and lopped the north section that we started last year. For what we did last year, see video on the Pine Log State Forest Camping, 2015 page. This year, teams started out at Pine Log State Forest in the morning. For the chapter page of the day, see https://www.meetup.com/Florida-Trail-Choctawhatchee-Chapter/events/232881286/
