Dust off your favorite hiking shoes and grab your water bottle. Connecticut Trails Day 2011 is almost here! This year’s celebration will be held Saturday and Sunday, June 4th and 5th, as part of National Trails Day. The theme is “Made With All Natural Ingredients.” Our natural ingredients should be easy to find with 193 Trails Day events scheduled in 115 towns on over 500 miles of trails across Connecticut.
There will be outdoor activities for everyone—including hiking, biking, 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, naturalists, educators, and land trusts.
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.
