American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day is a celebration of trails! Trails give you the opportunity to get your heart pumping, lungs expanding and muscles working at various levels of difficulty, thereby improving your physical, as well as mental, well-being. National Trails Day is not only an opportunity to introduce people to the many joys of trails, it is also to celebrate the hard work of the people who support and maintain the trails – volunteers, land agencies and outdoor-minded businesses.

This National Trails Day event, registered annually with the American Hiking Society by the Adirondack Mountain Club is strategically based in 2012 at Caroga Lake, NY in the Southern Adirondacks. It is proudly hosted by the Foothills Chapter of ADK.

The Adirondack Mountain Club (ADK) is a non-profit membership organization protecting wild lands and waters through a balanced approach of conservation and advocacy, environmental education and responsible recreation.
