June 5th National Trails Day

There was a time when trails were like the major highways we travel on today. They got wider and wider as time went on and eventually became roads and highways. Probably the most famous here in America was the Oregon Trail, it was so famous they even made a video game out of it. Today trails are more for our leisure. We travel them when we want to explore nature or get some exercise. This holiday always falls on the first Saturday of June when thew weather is warmer and the sun is, generally, shining. Enjoy the trails and imagine you are a settler traveling over these paths for the first time ever.

How to celebrate – Plan a trip on a trail. Explore different trails in your area. Create new trails for other to explore.
