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.

HOW TO OBSERVE

Visit your local trails. When possible, take a friend and try something new. Try a new trail, a new activity or introduce someone new to an activity you are skilled to pass on the experience to. Why keep it to yourself? Also, if you pack it in, pack it out. Show your appreciation to those who make the trail system possible.  Use #NationalTrailsDay to post on social media.
