2018 National Trails Day

National Trails Day is Saturday, June 2, 2018. According to the American Hiking Society, “National Trails Day is the only nationally coordinated event designed to unite all muscle-powered trail activities with the goal of connecting more people to trails. Every trail beckons adventure and has a story to share with any person willing to discover it, and American Hiking Society believes these trail experiences can improve the lives of every American. A sampling of NTD events held nationally: hiking, biking, running, trail maintenance, birding, wildlife photography, paddle trips, trail dedications, health-focused programs and children’s activities”

This year, due to the bridge construction in Oakland Township, we will be celebrating in our northern section of trail and at Children’s Park in Lake Orion.
Join us for the following free events!
