The SEFTC's mission is to promote public education leading to a network of hiking trails throughout the Southeast in the states of Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia and West Virginia. To encourage and facilitate building and maintenance of those trails; to educate the public at large to the need and value of hiking trails to health and conservation of wild lands; and to raise public awareness and appreciation for conserving our existing hiking trails throughout the stated region.
Specific intentions are to:
• Promote a regional network of long-distance hiking trails
• Protect the natural hiking trail corridors by jointly raising the visibility of the value and importance of hiking trails to the public
• Encourage and promote the construction and maintenance of hiking trails in the southeast, as well as strengthening relationships between
the organizations and individuals who are overseeing these foot trails.
