The Fonta Flora Flash

Hike & Learn

Our Spring Series was a huge success and we will be continuing the program in the fall. We have 3 dates set - one in each county - and hope you will be able to join us. As before, we will "learn" from our co-host, "hike" FFST and then have lunch together in the area. Events 

100 Mile Challenge

Twenty-eight registered for the inaugural F3ST 100 Mile Challenge (and 22 were new members).

For now, participants could move forward in any manner, any where. Eventually, the event will all be on the 100-mile Fonta Flora State Trail.

Finishers have taken to social media to post their mileage logs and action shots in their F3ST t-shirts to celebrate their accomplishment. 

Get ready for next year. We will be doing this again!

MTA Annual Meeting

F3ST Executive Director Beth Heile was the guest speaker at the McDowell Trails Association Annual Membership Meeting on July 20.Beth thanked MTA for paving the way for F3ST, so to speak, by being so well respected in the community from all their hard work.

MTA has donated $25K for the Dog Park at the Old Fort Trailhead Park and has raised money for FFST trailhead signs at 3 locations. Learn More

New Trail Section

To access the USFS trails, a possible route has been traced that would leave the Old Fort Trailhead and Park and follow Curtis Creek until Jarrett Creek Parking. The next step is getting some surveys and talking with the landowners. This section should  be completed by the end of the year. Read More
