This map is amazing! Thank you to our partners at @trails50 for this detailed map of the National Trails System and visually highlighting the extensiveness of the Chesapeake Trail! The Trail covers 3,000 miles throughout the Chesapeake Bay watershed and its rivers. We're excited that the map lists Chesapeake Bay area wildlife refuges and National Park sites within the region!

We’re bummed to see our intern go! She contributed much to the trail in her short time with us. Thoughts about her internship are in the bio link above.

An insane number of #wildlife species including the endangered Florida panther and numerous rare and/or endangered plants are found in #bigcypress , the nation’s first-designated #nationalpreserve . It’s also home to the southern terminus of the #floridatrail which I’ll be re-visiting soon to kick off my 7,000 mile for 50 years of the National Trails System Act of 1968. Learn more about this incredibly unique #publiclands site and the many recreational opportunities offered here besides just hanging around like this lil #murderlog at supportpubliclands.com! #PLP2017 #PLP2018 #trails50 #findyourtrail #FT #gators #wildlife #florida #exploremore #thruhiking
Happy New Year! 2018 is the 50th anniversary of our National Trails System. What’s your first hike of the new year going to be? #myshenandoah #findyourtrail #trails50 #shenandoahnationalpark
I’m not much for living in or dwelling on the past, nor am I particularly into the human constructs of time - to me *every* day is a New Year, a new life. But since I’m going in an all-new and much slower direction with supportpubliclands.com in 2018, I figured it wasn’t a bad idea to summarize this first year of my project: - 82 unique public lands sites visited, from city to National Parks and everything in between; - 16 states, including 3 corners of the lower 48 (sorry Northeast but we’ll be getting to know each other much better real soon!); - 100+ pages on a #publiclands website I built from the ground up and for which I am the sole producer and maintainer; - Unknown total miles hiked, but I know it wasn’t enough, which is why I’m looking forward to Round 2 of the project and my plan to hike the #FloridaTrail , #Pinhoti , #AT , and #CDT in 2018 to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the National Trails System Act! Learn from the past, live in the present, never fear the future. Happy 2018! ❤️ #PLP2017 #PLP2018 #Trails50 #FindYourTrail #protectpubliclands 📷: @soflohiker
#floridatrail app on board thanks to the generosity of in-kind sponsors @guthookguides ...Joined the @floridatrail association this morning, flight booked to Miami... I hit trail next week and feel like if I don’t get eaten by murder logs in #bigcypress the first couple of days, I’m going all 7k miles... 😂 CANNOT WAIT! #ft #pinhoti #at #cdt #plp2018 #thruhiking #trails50 #findyourtrail supportpubliclands.com
If I had a mic this would be where I drop it... I may not really be so SuperClassy but my new pack is for damn sure! Endless gratitude to #ulaequipment for hooking me up on such short notice with this sweet sweet custom Ohm 2.0 I’ll be using on my 7000 miles for 50 years walk... It even has supportpubliclands.com embroidered on it on both sides! 😍😍😍 #PLP2018 #trails50 #findyourtrail @ulachris #TeamOhm #cht #hikertrash #backpacking #thruhiking #floridatrail #pinhotitrail #AT #CDT
Meet one of the hardest-working volunteers with the @floridatrail Association! @soflohiker 'El Prez' (here in red) was kind enough to spend a few days showing me around #bigcypress #nationalpreserve and other awesome spots in south-central #Florida earlier this year for my supportpubliclands.com project, and was instrumental in my decision to kick-off my 7000 miles for the 50th Anniversary of the National Trails System Act of 1968 with a thru of the whole #floridatrail in 2018!

#floridatrail #gear list done - new pack ordered, so it’s time to retire this bad boy who has been awesome for +3000 miles... spoiler alert: the colors on my new ULA Ohm 2.0 should alert any hunters to my presence... as well as being visible from space 🤗 🚀 All I’m missing otherwise is a pair of hiking-grade sandals to replace my target flip-flops...

I can’t believe it’s already been a month since I went creeping on the #PCT with this cat! Transient #hikertrash off the long trails are like atoms: we bink around all over the place and occasionally collide for little adventures before bouncing off in opposite directions again... so far this year I’ve binked into @cachebuster in Oceanside, CA / Pie Town, NM / Cascade Locks, OR / Idyllwild, CA. Can’t wait to see where and when we turn up next 😆 if you aren’t already following the adventures of Spoon and #TeamCachebuster , you’re missing out! supportpubliclands.com #PLP2017 #pctig #pacificcresttrail #montbell #OurWild #protectpubliclands #outdoorlife #exploremore #traillife #nomadventures #CHT #cachebuster #trails50 #findyourtrail
With everything from a free rifle range to three natural #springs areas, where you can do anything from hike a 39-mile stretch of the #FloridaTrail to #snorkel , the #LakeGeorge Ranger District of the #Ocala #NationalForest has something for everyone, and the variety of #wildlife in this area is incredible!

A nice article on the trail came out in yesterday's San Antonio Express News. https://www.google.com/amp/www.expressnews.com/sa300/amp/El-Camino-Real-went-through-S-A-long-before-city-12408054.php #elcaminotejas #elcaminoreal #Trails50 #FindYourTrail #FindYourPark #ExploreELCAT
If you haven’t seen the guest blog I wrote for @hikingtrailsforamerica earlier this month yet about the danger of roadwalks and thus importance of getting dedicated rights-of-way for ALL of our #nationalscenictrail , there’s now an easy access link up at supportpubliclands.com. Because nobody wants to type in a bunch of stuff into an address bar... Or roadwalk 😬 #PLP2017 #floridatrail #pct #trails50 #findyourtrail #keepitpublic #dontberoadkill
Thousands of volunteers across the country dedicate hundreds of thousands of hours to trails every year. Thank you volunteers! #FindYourTrail #trails50 #hiking #volunteer #floridatrail Photo credit @dirtnsun
I’m frequently asked what #publiclands site I visited this year for my supportpubliclands.com project was my favorite and without hesitation I answer #BearsEars #NationalMonument in #Utah . So I was sad to hear of the plans to reduce it and #grandstaircaseescalante today. In the spirit of #GivingTuesday you can help me continue sharing amazing sites like this to promote usage, awareness of, and advocacy for #ourpubliclands by visiting my Patreon page at patreon.com/supportpubliclands and pledging a small monthly donation or by making a one-time gift at PayPal.me/PLP2017. There are rewards available at Patreon and anyone who makes a donation via PayPal of at least $10 will get something from the trail as I set out to walk my 7,000 miles for the 50th Anniversary of the National Trails System Act of 1968! . #PLP2017 #PLP2018 #KeepItPublic #OurWild #PublicLandowner #AT #Pinhoti #FloridaTrail #CDT #Trails50 #FindYourTrail

This Giving Tuesday, you can give back, and help us to build a better Pacific Northwest Trail. Even a small gift to project Thunderbird can have a big impact – your donation will help us to install trail markers featuring the iconic Thunderbird symbol of the PNT that let hikers know which way to go at places like trail junctions and road crossings. It will also help us to do trail work where a lack of funding has left the PNT unmaintained for too long. This end-of-year fundraiser has some awesome incentives for giving that will make great holiday gifts. A PNT trail marker to keep, one on the trail that you can call your own, and a beautiful engraved wall map are all perfect for that trail lover on your shopping list. Learn more about how you can help us improve the PNT from Crown-to-Coast by making a tax-deductible gift, today. Click on the link in our bio to learn more.
On this #GivingTuesday please consider making a donation to our association, so that you can help to support our programs in 2018! https://www.elcaminorealdelostejas.org/support-us/ Thanks for your support! #Donate #Support #Give #elcaminotejas #FindYourTrail #FindYourPark #Trails50
In less than a month I’ll be on the #FloridaTrail to start walking 7,000 miles on National Scenic or Recreational Trail. I couldn’t be much further away from all that here, overlooking the west from #tahquitzpeak in #SoCal , but it’s all nature and so all glorious. I am so excited to get back on trail and mash some serious miles. These feet are itching. #PLP2017 #PLP2018 #KeepItPublic #OurWild #trails50 supportpubliclands.com 📷: @cachebuster
Today I opted outside on the trails right in front of my office. I managed to fit in a good 45 min ski during the work day. Yay for public lands!! #optoutside #publiclands #xcountryski #trails #anchorage #findyourtrail #trails50
Happy Thanksgiving to all of our CDT Dreamers. We are grateful today that 50 years ago, Congress created the entire National Trails System, and that 40 years ago, created the CDT. From the words of Former Secretary of Interior, Stewart Udall:"“much of our history would have passed in to oblivion , ploughed under or paved over, were it not for the National Trails legislation signed into law by President Lyndon Johnson in 1968….the longest trails celebrate the American Great outdoors traveling on foot or horseback down one of these trails provides an intense exposure to a world that would otherwise be accessible only in history books and atlases.” photo credit Dan Vardamis. #bravethecdt #cdt40 #trails50 #cdtwyoming @nationaltrailssystem
