American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day is the country’s largest celebration of trails, with events in every state across the country that include hikes, biking and horseback rides, paddling trips, birdwatching, geocaching, gear demonstrations, stewardship projects and more.
According to AHS, "America’s 200,000 miles of trails allow us access to the natural world for recreation, education, exploration, solitude, inspiration, and much more. Trails give us a means to support good physical and mental health; they provide us with a chance to breathe fresh air, get our hearts pumping, and escape from our stresses. All it takes is a willingness to use them!"
The event also aims to highlight the important work thousands of volunteers do each year to take care of America’s trails. For more, visit their website: http://nationaltrailsday.americanhiking.org/
