National Trails Day is Saturday, June 6, 2020. 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, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be celebrating National Trails Day virtually. The American Hiking Society is currently organizing a digital campaign to inspire individuals to unite for the protection of trails and access to public lands during this time of social-distancing. Further event details will be made available soon!
