Hey Dale I've read a bunch of your posts and have been meaning to reach out to you about trail work in Big Cypress. I'm the new section leader for the Big Cypress chapter of the FTA which assumes some trail responsibility of the FT from Loop Road almost all the way up to i75. north of that is the responsibility of the Happy Hoofers chapter. 

We definitely have an interest in extending the Gator Hook trail to the FT and I personally am interested in that trail you have explored going north of Gator Hook into Gannet Strand. 

We are doing  trail maintenance this Saturday on the Loop to Oasis section that is no longer technically part of the Florida National Scenic Trail so we'll be painting it blue to distinguish it as such. You're more than welcome to join us.

Thanks. If You Should Hear Anything Further Or I Can Answer Something For You, Don't Hesitate. . . .
