National Trails Day is Saturday, June 4th, 2016

Come celebrate the 23rd anniversary of National Trails Day in the Smokies on the Appalachian Trail. This fun workday only comes around once a year, and you don’t want to miss it. Please get your registration in as soon as possible.

Friends of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, the Southern Regional Office of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy, Smoky Mountains Hiking Club, and Great Smoky Mountains National Park are pleased to coordinate another Annual Appalachian Trail Work Day in Great Smoky Mountains National Park on National Trails Day. They invite you to participate in helping them take care of the AT in the GSMNP. This year also marks the 100-year anniversary of the National Park Service, and the contributions to stewardship of our national parks have never been more important.

The AT Maintainers Committee of the Smoky Mountains Hiking Club and the Appalachian Trail Conservancy are responsible for maintaining the A.T. and its facilities in Great Smoky Mountains National Park on a continuing basis. With your help on National Trails Day, important trail maintenance projects are completed that otherwise would not be accomplished; these improvements make the Appalachian Trail in the Smokies safer and more enjoyable for the thousands of hikers who use the trail each year.
