Since then, at least that number of new trails has created or is being established, and there have been numerous links added to existing trails.

Since then, two more parts of the trail have opened.

The West Section was dedicated in 2002, covering 117 sites in 18 "clusters" from the Georgia state line south to Tampa Bay and Bradenton. In the north, you'll find Mississippi kite, wild turkey, red-cockaded woodpecker, brown-headed nuthatch, pine warbler, and Bachman's sparrow at Osceola National Forest. Paynes Prairie Preserve State Park, near Gainesville, is known for its impressive wintering flocks of sandhill crane, along with nesting least bittern, purple gallinule, and king rail, and various wintering wrens and sparrows. Lower Suwannee NWR provides access to bald cypress swamps and bottomland hardwoods, good for everything from anhinga and swallow-tailed kite to barred owl and northern parula.
