The mission of F3ST is to bring together communities and volunteers to build, maintain, and promote the Fonta Flora State Trail (FFST). The goal is to complete the FFST in 10 years.

Located in western North Carolina, the 100-Mile Fonta Flora State Trail will connect Morganton to Asheville with hiking and biking trails along the Catawba River and creeks, around Lake James, through the mountains and into downtowns.
