This Saturday, June 4th, is National Trails Day! With thousands of events all across the country, there's bound to be an event or two near you.

You can get active: Go hike, paddle, or ride a bike by all means have some fun - whether that's on a scout activity, family vacation to a national park, a backpacking trip with friends, or a nice solo hike on one of many hiking trails in Dallas.

You can get smart: Visit educational exhibits, join a guided hike, or go bird watching with local experts.

You can celebrate: Go to a trail opening or dedication, win prizes, or get kids you know to enter the NTD coloring contest.

You can give back: Show your favorite hiking trail a little TLC by joining in on a little trail maintenance.

This is a wonderful day to bring somebody along who may be new to hiking, biking, etc. so don't come alone! Many events also include special activities for children. Find an event near you

And for those of you who want to share your love of the outdoors with the larger community, you're encouraged to share your NTD experience and photos on Facebook.
