10:00 am - 12:00 pm
It’s National Trails Day! Join our Trail Ambassadors on a guided tour of Black Run Preserve as we observe National Trails Day. National Trails Day recognizes all the incredible benefits federal, state and local trails provide for recreation and exposure nature. Events held throughout the United States help promote awareness of the wide variety of services the trails systems offer. National Trails Day encourages people to discover their local trials, become active concerning trail issues and share their excitement for the outdoors.
While hiking may be the first activity to come to mind, trails offer so much more! Trails provide access to waterways for canoeing and paddle trips. Birders find excellent opportunities for birdwatching and those seeking to test their abilities to observe and study geolocation enjoy geocaching. Others learn land navigation or use the trails for biking. Each of the pursuits creates an opportunity to spend time outdoors and generate an excellent cardiovascular workout.
National Trails Day is also an opportunity to thank the many volunteers, land agencies, trail developers, park employees, rangers for their help in developing and maintaining the trails.
WHAT TO WEAR: Be sure to dress for the weather. Some trails may be wet. Hiking or waterproof boots are recommended.
DETAILS: This is a social/informational hike for fun and to gather with other outdoor enthusiasts and Friends of the Black Run Preserve.
Meet at the welcome table at 9:30 pm to check in and sign your waiver.
