National Trails Day!
Georgians of all ages are invited to lace up their hiking boots this June in celebration of National Trails Day and the 85th anniversary of Georgia’s State Park System. Park rangers are saying “hike with us on our birthday” as a way to honor our country’s largest public trail event. Sponsored by the American Hiking Society, National Trails Day is held the first Saturday of each June and highlights 200,000 miles of trails that crisscross America.
Programs included ranger-led hikes, kayak tours, caving, geocaching and even the kickoff of a new dog walking club. While most are set for Saturday, June 4, a few will happen throughout the month. A partial listing of National Trails Day events is below and more can be found at www.GeorgiaStateParks.org. To make reservations for camping, cottages or yurts, visitors can go online or call 1-800-864-7275. Georgia’s state parks and historic sites are operated by the Department of Natural Resources.
