2019 National Trails Day

NTD Logo

National Trails Day is Saturday, June 1, 2019. According to the American Hiking Society, “National Trails Day is the only nationally coordinated event designed to unite all muscle-powered trail activities with the goal of connecting more people to trails. Every trail beckons adventure and has a story to share with any person willing to discover it, and American Hiking Society believes these trail experiences can improve the lives of every American. A sampling of NTD events held nationally: hiking, biking, running, trail maintenance, birding, wildlife photography, paddle trips, trail dedications, health-focused programs and children’s activities”

This year, we will again be celebrating in our northern section of trail from 1:00 – 4:00 pm in the municipal parking lot adjacent Children’s Park in Lake Orion. We will be coordinating our National Trails Day activities with the Clergy, Cops & Kids event also being held in downtown Lake Orion that day!

We hope you will join us for the following fun activities and giveaways!

  • Bike safety demonstration by the Lake Orion Police Department
  • A nondenominational Blessing of the Bikes by Rev. John Ball, Lake Orion United Methodist Church
  • Family friendly bike ride on the trail from Children’s Park in Lake Orion to Clarkston/Kern intersection
