National Trails Day

Greenbelt Park has re-opened in a limited fashion, due to the safety issues of the on-going construction project to rebuild and repave the 1960s park infrastructure.

All roads and parking lots remain closed to visitors. Picnic areas, campground, comfort stations, and playgrounds are also closed. No restroom facilities are available. The pedestrian trails are open to visitors. Social distancing and wearing facial masks is recommended for safety. Parking is available on the public street on Walker Drive across MD 193, Greenbelt Road from the park entrance. Please exercise caution in crossing this busy thoroughfare: cross only at crosswalk and obey traffic signals.”


National Trails Day at Greenbelt Park is Saturday June 5, 2021.
The park does not have an entrance fee so you can enjoy a hike on the trails throughout the day.

Join us for a trail volunteer project. We are meeting at Park Headquarters Sweetgum Picnic Area at 8:45 a.m.
We will carpool to the project area and trail projects begin at 9:20 a.m. and last until 12 Noon. Registration is required through Event Brite

Join us to find your park and find your trail.

Greenbelt has four trails ranging from 0.8 miles to 5.2 miles.
You are invited to walk a trail, discover nature and use our park to improve your health. The best trails to access are the Azalea (1.2 miles) and the Perimeter Trail (5.2 miles).

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.
Each year, on the first Saturday of June, American Hiking Society and the trails community invite Americans of all ages and abilities to find their own adventure and discover their unique story at one of the thousands of events hosted throughout the country.
