What is Trails Day?

Each year on the first Saturday of June, we come together to celebrate National Trails Day. National Trails Day is a day of public events aimed at advocacy and trail service started by the American Hiking Society. As the state affiliate for the American Hiking Society, CFPA was an early adopter of the National Trails Day program. With over 200 events, Connecticut has elevated to the national stage by hosting more events than any other state. Now, Connecticut Trails Day has expanded into a two-day celebration at many locations throughout our state. Join us the first weekend in June to celebrate trails and the outdoors by promoting recreational activities to protect our trails for future generations.
