Hey, Camp Fans!
Lace up your boots and go hit a local trail. If you’re passionate about hiking, biking, bird watching, geo-caching, horseback riding, or other trail-oriented activities, there’s bound to be a nearby trail for you to enjoy today! No matter what kind of outing you have planned, it feels good simply immersing yourself in the scenic landscape of the natural world.
Here are some great reasons to enjoy, share, and appreciate National Trails Day today—check ‘em out:
Your Own Backyard
Most people live within driving distance of cool trails that are just waiting to be discovered and explored by you. Park trails offer us a chance to escape the bustling city life for a while without traveling too far to experience the peaceful existence of the natural world and enjoy the fresh air of the wilderness.
Togetherness on the Trails
Most trails are maintained by means of volunteer labor, so if you have interest in helping out—don’t hesitate! Check out the American Hiking Society’s website right here to look into volunteer opportunities for yourself. You can also look into events being held in celebration of National Trails Day or hosting an event yourself to take charge and bring your community together.
Ain’t Nothing Like the Real Thing
Delivering an aspect of physical exertion that treadmills and exercise bikes cannot, trails incorporate beautiful winding turns that feature new landscapes and provide a treat for your eyes. Trails provide an abundance of mental health benefits as well; the air you breathe in is much crisper and brings a fresh supply of oxygen to your brain, resulting in a happier you.
