Hi, we’re Sandra Friend and John Keatley, the award-winning creators of Florida Hikes! Between us, we’ve authored nearly 40 books, visited dozens of countries, and wandered across the United States in search of natural beauty, hiking and biking to enjoy the outdoors. We’re here to guide and inspire you to enjoy national parks, state parks, small towns and villages, walkable cities, and road trips. We believe that travel is for everyone, and is good for the soul.
Our award-winning guide to the Florida National Scenic Trail provides comprehensive end-to-end coverage of more than 1,400 miles of hiking in Florida, a must-have for planning your hike. 356 pages, 106 maps.
We love the outdoors, and we love travel. Our favorite destinations are where they intersect.
We believe in travel as a journey through life, savoring the moments as we go. Join us on the Journey
