Connecticut Trails Day Celebration 2012
Hit the Trails on June 2 and 3
Dust off your favorite hiking shoes and grab your water bottle. The 20th annual Connecticut Trails Day Celebration is almost here! This year's festivities will take place on Saturday and Sunday, June 2 and 3, as part of National Trails Day. The theme is ""America's Largest TRAILgating Party."" Invite a friend to join in the fun and take part in one of the 193 enticing events (in 121 towns on over 540 miles of trails) found in this year's booklet.
There will be outdoor activities for everyone—including hiking, biking, horseback riding, running, trail maintenance, kayaking, educational walks, bird watching, geocaching, and more. These events are guided by knowledgeable volunteers from local hiking clubs, parks and recreation departments, state agencies, conservation organizations, historic groups, education programs, and land trusts.
The Connecticut Forest & Park Association has served as the American Hiking Society's Connecticut state coordinator for National Trails Day since 1993. Strong participation by organizations like the Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection (DEEP), Appalachian Mountain Club (AMC), Connecticut Library Consortium, Connecticut State Library, land trusts, town agencies, outdoors-oriented businesses, numerous volunteers, and our great sponsors is key to the success of this statewide celebration.
Don't miss out on this fun-filled weekend, which will provide many opportunities to discover new places and experience the outdoors with family, friends, and neighbors.
