National Trails Day 2020

National Trails Day is held annually on the first Saturday in June (this year June 6th), and recognizes all the incredible benefits federal, state and local trails provide for recreation and exposure nature. Events held throughout the United States help promote awareness of the wide variety of services the trails systems offer.

We’ve temporarily experienced life with limited access to trails and public lands and, now more than ever, realize how much we need them.

Take American Hiking Society’s #NationalTrailsDay Pledge and commit to taking at least one action in 2020 to preserve trails and fight for equitable access to quality green space.

Once it’s safe to do so without fear of COVID-19 transmission, commit to taking a trash bag with you whenever you hike or go for a walk. Collect trash at a local natural space or trail or along your neighborhood sidewalk.

Tell your Member of Congress why trails and access to natural spaces are important to you and ask them to pass bipartisan legislation that supports trails, public lands, and access for all.

Trails don’t maintain themselves and greenspace for all doesn’t magically appear. Make a gift to a local trail nonprofit to help build an inclusive hiking community to protect your favorite trails and fight for access for all today and for future generations.
