In our area, there are several activities planned for this event, including the Bear Yuba Land Trust's Celebration of Trails in Nevada City, Gold Country Trails Council's Poker Ride at Skillman Horse Camp in the Tahoe National Forest, Folsom Lake Overnight with Bike Travel Weekend - Adventure Cycling Association and others.
National Trails Day is the only nationally coordinated event designed to unite all non-motorized trail activities with the goal of connecting more people to trails. Every trail beckons adventure and has a story to share with any person willing to discover it, and American Hiking Society believes these trail experiences can improve the lives of every American.
By coordinating a wide array of trail activities on a single day, National Trails Day attracts new trail users and helps connect existing trail enthusiasts with local clubs and organizations with the hopes of creating trail advocates and stewards. The task to protect and maintain more than 200,000 miles of trails in the U.S. requires a collaborative effort among trail clubs, organizations, government agencies, and most importantly passionate trail advocates and stewards.
