Enjoy The Great Outdoors

Lace up your hiking boots, air up your bike tires, dust off your work gloves, slip on your trail runners, grab your paddle, or saddle up your horse and HIT THE TRAIL!

Share the Adventure

Adventures are meant to be shared. National Trails Day is a great opportunity to meet new people in your area and share a fun experience on a local trail. Share your adventure with the nation using #NationalTrailsDay.

Find Your Trail

Young or old, inexperienced or expert, there's a trail and a National Trails Day event to suit the interests of every individual.

National Trails Day® Pledge

“I pledge to take action in 2021 to care for trails and advocate for equitable, safe access to quality green spaces.”

We will never share your email address.

Easy Actions to Make a Difference

Here are easy ways to celebrate #NationalTrailsDay. You might have more creative ideas, and we can’t wait to see what you come up with. Complete one task or really boost your trail cred by completing all of them:

Commit to Trail Service in 2021

Many trail organizations are working hard to coordinate socially-distanced volunteer trail projects in 2021. We'll help connect you with a variety of opportunities.

Speak Up*

Tell your Member of Congress to Co-Sponsor the Transit to Trails Act (H.R. 2924/S.1461) and include the legislation in any transportation and infrastructure package.

Leave a Trail Better Than You Found It

Commit to taking a trash bag with you whenever you hike or go for a walk. Collect trash on a local trail, along your neighborhood sidewalk, or in a natural space near you.

Give a Gift

Trails don’t maintain themselves, and green space for all doesn’t magically appear. Join a local trail nonprofit and donate to American Hiking Society to help build an inclusive hiking community to protect your favorite trails and fight for access for all today and for future generations.

#RecreateResponsibly

Keep yourself healthy, keep others safe, and preserve and protect public lands, waters, and parks, and help make the outdoors inclusive for all. Check out these helpful guidelines and join the movement.
