Our mission is to advance, advocate, support, promote and protect the St Johns River-to-Sea Loop (SJR2C) multiuse Florida SUN Trail and its corridor. The Alliance is headquartered in Deland, Fl with leadership from all five counties. The Alliance assists area governmental units in development, planning and prioritization; promotes environmental, cultural and historical awareness of the Trail and nearby communities; and helps develop additional linkages and a network of trails that connect with the Loop. The Alliance advances the Loop through communication and events. We coordinate with governmental agencies that build the Loop and those at the county and municipal level responsible for integrating the trail into how we live where we live, including objectives of health and fitness, household economy, environmental protection, and social equity. The St Johns River-to-Sea Loop Alliance is a nonprofit, 501(c)3 tax exempt association formed on July 26, 2016.
The nonprofit St. Johns River-to-Sea-Loop Alliance will help enable completion of the off-road paved five-county SJR2C Loop trail by 2025. The Loop will become one of the most popular touring regions of Florida, inspiring residents and attracting visitors and new residents, and will connect people and communities and stimulate locally resourceful economic development along its entire 260-mile route. The Loop will become a model for active transportation and for place-focused tourism. The Alliance will become a model for stimulating local, regional and global involvement, support and promotion of trail planning, development and use.
