Continental Divide Trail Coalition announces its 2017 Trail Days & Kick-Off

The Continental Divide Trail Coalition will hold its third annual Trail Days & Kick-Off throughout the weekend of April 28 through 30, 2017, in Silver City, NM to celebrate the launch of the 2017 hiking season on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, and Silver City as the trail’s first Gateway Community.

Continental Divide Trail Days will feature seminars, presentations, gear demos, a “Basecamp” outdoor expo, giveaways, raffles, community hikes and more. The three-day event welcomes those who are setting out to hike over 3,000 miles on the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail, as well as those who use the trail for shorter adventures and day hikes.

“The Continental Divide Trail Coalition is proud to celebrate communities that are helping to protect and promote the Continental Divide Trail,” states Teresa Martinez, director of the Continental Divide Trail Coalition. “This event has seen immense success over the past few years, and we’re excited to see it grow and engage even more of the Silver City community.”

Congress established the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail in 1978 to conserve the nationally significant scenic, historic, natural and cultural qualities of the area. When complete, the CDT will be the most significant trail system in the world. Stretching 3,100 miles along the backbone of America from Canada to Mexico, it accesses some of the most wild and scenic places left in the world while conserving the environment and promoting personal well-being.
