"EXPERIENCE YOUR OUTDOORS "

American Hiking Society's signature trail awareness program, National Trails Day® (NTD), inspires nearly a million trail enthusiasts at thousands of events nationwide to flock to their favorite trails to discover, learn about and celebrate trails while participating in educational exhibits, trail dedications, gear demonstrations, instructional workshops and trail work projects. It also provides an opportunity to thank the volunteers, land managing agencies, and outdoor minded businesses for their support in developing and maintaining trails. Trail clubs, outdoor retailers, federal agencies, municipal parks, and land trusts come together the first Saturday of each June to celebrate trails, recognize volunteers, and maintain local trails.
