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.
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.
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.
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.
