National Trails Day
Save the date — the first Saturday of June is always National Trails Day.
This year, we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the National Trails System Act. This landmark legislation created our National Trails System, which includes the Pacific Northwest Trail — one of America’s newest National Scenic Trails.
Today, the National Trails System includes: 11 National Scenic Trails, 19 National Historic Trails, and more than 1,200 National Recreation Trails (including 21 National Water Trails). These trails provide outdoor recreation opportunities, promote resource preservation and public access, and encourage the appreciation of the great outdoors and America’s history and cultural diversity.
