National Trails Day

Date When Celebrated : Always the First Saturday in June

Happy Trails to you!!!!!

National Trails Day is established to celebrate, improve and enjoy America's magnificent trail system. It is the nation's largest celebration of trails, and all that goes with it. In addition to the national trail system, there are countless miles of state, county and local town trail systems for you enjoy. While today is a celebration of national trails, it is perfectly fine to celebrate all trails in our great nation.

Trail systems are enjoyed for a wide range of activities, including:

  • Hiking
  • Biking
  • Horseback riding
  • Bird watching
  • Geocaching
  • Many other activities.

How to Celebrate National Trails Day

There are any ways to celebrate this special day. Here are a few ideas:

  • Get out on a trail with family or friends. Enjoy a wonderful time with nature.
  • Host an event - a bike ride or hiking event on your local trail.
  • Organize and conduct a trail improvement project -  Scouts and many other groups can do important service projects, improving a local trail. Important: This requires permission from the government organization that oversees the trail.

.Ps Don't forget the Trail Mix

The Origin of National Trails Day:

Our research did not find the creator of this special day. The American Hiking Society is a strong supporter and advocate of National Trails Day.

References date its origin back to the 1980s and 1990s. At the time, trail advocates, outdoors industry leaders, and politicians worked to promote and bring awareness to the nation's wonderful and extensive trail system.

We found no documentation supporting this to be a formal "National" day, which requires a presidential proclamation, or an act of Congress.
