SEFTC Regional Conference

Join Us at the SEFTC Regional Trail Conference May 20-23


You are invited to four days of learning, fun, and fellowship at the Southeastern Foot Trails Coalition’s (SEFTC) General Conference to be held May 20-23 (Thursday – Sunday) at the DuBose Conference Center in Monteagle, Tennessee. Registration information is now available at the SEFTC website and also on that of many trail clubs in the Southeast.

This grand, biennial event will feature daily workshops and hikes for the Southeast’s trail community. The DuBose Center is located about an hour northwest of Chattanooga, a mile off Interstate 24. Perched high on the Cumberland Plateau, it offers excellent housing options and numerous nearby hiking opportunities. Daily workshops will provide leaders in various fields present to educate the hiking community. Evenings will feature special events, such as a speaker and/or entertainment.

Lodging options include the following: both motel and dormitory-style rooms, a few group cabins, and camping on the premises. Attendees need to sign up in advance with your registration for all meals you may choose at the facility. Thursday’s opening night individuals are on their own to secure dinner at one of several nearby restaurants before the general meeting at 7:00 p.m. Experienced leaders are being provided for all hikes. 

The DuBose Center prides itself in making arrangements for those with vegetarian and vegan food needs; the registration form provides a place to indicate either of these preferences.

Registration has begun, with all checks made out to SEFTC and mailed to the registrar. There is a registration fee of $25, but those registering before April 1 will only be charged $20. The complete workshops and hikes list will be available in March, and posted to the SEFTC website and hiking clubs.

So come join us for a great hiking and training event in late May.
