Spend Saturday, June 4, celebrating the 30th annual National Trails Day at many family-friendly activities held in Missouri State Parks throughout the state. Events such as interpretive hikes, guided bike rides and other nature programs will be taking place. The day also encourages visitors to head out for their own trail adventure in a state park or historic site.
American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day initiative is the country’s largest celebration of trails. It is a nationwide event designed to promote and celebrate the importance of trails in the United States. This year’s celebration is about bringing people together to leave the trail and outdoor community better than they found them.
“Missouri State Parks offers more than 1,000 miles of trails for Missourians and visitors to get outside, have fun and stay active while enjoying nature,” said David Kelly, director of Missouri State Parks. “An adventure on a trail provides guests of all ages and skill levels the chance to experience and learn about Missouri’s great outdoors.”
