The project will improve access to and complete the Florida National Scenic Trail (FNST) at St. Marks National Wildlife Refuge (NWR), a nationally recognized resource. The project will provide improved connectivity, infrastructure, access, and education. The upgraded structures, interpretive materials, and enhanced access will improve the FNST system by promoting environmental stewardship, education, and outreach. Interpretive materials along new routes and construction of side trails will highlight areas of cultural significance which enhance the experience of trail users.
