Background Discussion

In 1987, a group of individuals came together to form the Florida Cracker Trail Association to recreate a part of Florida’s past that has become a traditional event. The Annual Cross-State Ride is a re-enactment of the return trip from Bradenton to Fort Pierce along the Florida Cracker Trail. It commemorates the dedication of the Trail and honors the Cracker Cowmen and their history.

This year's ride will be held February 17 through February 24.
