The first Saturday in every June is National Trails Day

The first Saturday in June is designated as National Trails Day (NTD) in the United States. On June 7, 2008, millions of equestrians, hikers, bikers and other outdoor enthusiasts are taking part in thousands of events nationwide in celebration of America’s trails. These events include new trail dedications, workshops, educational exhibits, equestrian and mountain bike rides, rollerblading, trail maintenance and hikes.

National Trails Day is organized nationwide by the American Hiking Society, a national nonprofit trail advocacy group based in Washington, D.C., but all events 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.

  1. I liked the article. A group of us started an non-profit organization called South Georgia Equestrian Association, we have a charity ride that day to benifit the Shriner’s. We raised over $2500 that day
