This year marks RTC’s seventh annual Opening Day for Trails! On Saturday, April 13, 2019, people across the nation will kick off the spring trail season by hitting their favorite trails for a walk, run, ride or special event.

We'll be posting Opening Day events soon, so keep checking back to find one happening on a trail near you! Right now, consider planning your own event or finding a local trail to visit.

“Opening Day for Trails is the perfect opportunity for people across the country to celebrate America’s spectacular trail system—and to connect with one another. Whether it’s to play, exercise, volunteer, spend time in nature, explore their community or all of the above, Opening Day brings together trail users of all variety to appreciate and enjoy these treasured outdoor spaces."
