National Trails Day
National Trails Day® is organized by the American Hiking Society. All events, however, are planned and carried out at the local level by conservation and recreation organizations, trail clubs, and land managing agencies. Originally established in 1993, NTD has grown to approximately 3,000 events across the country.
The objectives of National Trails Day not only include promoting public awareness of and appreciation for America’s trails, but also encouraging cooperative efforts among different trail users, including hikers, bicyclists, equestrians, walkers, runners and anyone else who enjoys being on the trail.
