American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day 2023 is celebrated by our Connecticut Forest & Park Association who coordinates the largest one in the nation. “Connecticut Trails Day 2023” invites all residents to play in our best playground – Mother Nature’s outdoors!
The 2023 Trails Day is bigger and better than ever- offering something for everyone! Visit the website to learn all about the many hikes, educational walks, trail runs, bike rides, horseback rides, water trail paddles, letterboxing, trail work parties and more.
This annual national celebration allow citizens to access the natural world for recreation, education, exploration, solitude, inspiration, and much more. Trails give us a means to support good physical and mental health; they provide us with a chance to breathe fresh air, get our hearts pumping, and escape from our stresses. All it takes is a willingness to use them!
National Trails Day also aims to highlight the important work thousands of volunteers do each year to take care of America’s trails. Trails do not just magically appear for our enjoyment; their construction and maintenance takes hours of dedicated planning and labor. So give thanks to your local volunteers and consider taking a day to give back to your favorite trail.
