Swap insight with top trail hounds

Written by 

Trail advocates from several states will converge for the Southeastern Foot Trails Coalition annual gathering Sept. 20-23 at Falls Creek Falls State Park outside Chattanooga, Tenn.

The conference features a packed line-up of speakers, group hikes and workshops. 

Some of the many program topics include: writing trail guides, serving as a trail ambassador, Leave No Child Inside, maintaining trails in wilderness areas, fixes for poorly designed trails, acquiring land for trails and trail protection.

Several hiking clubs and trail organizations from Western North Carolina will be attending to learn new tools and build camaraderie with like-minded hikers from more than 40 trail groups.
