Celebrate Trails 2021.jpg

Every spring, the team at Rails-to-Trails Conservancy encourages folks to shake off the winter and celebrate America’s amazing trails. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, this year’s celebration will be simple: they are asking people to share their trail experiences to show how valuable trails are in connecting us and inspiring wellness.  In addition, they will provide resources to help you plan solo, family- and household-friendly, virtual and other trail adventures—plus, opportunities to win awesome trail gear and other prizes!  

For more information on this Rails-to-Trails initiative go to the Celebrate Trails Day hub of the RTC website or follow #CelebrateTrails on social media for updates.   You can see ways to safely enjoy the trails even in these uncharted times at #SharetheTrail
