About National Trails Day

America has a wonderful system of trails. And the good news is that these paths and walkways are getting better and longer. 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.

History and 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.
