2021 National Trails DayNational Trails Day - June 5, 2021

2021 National Trails Day event registration is now open! Access event hosting materials and register your event directly on American Hiking Society's website:

Each year, the nation celebrates the values of trails with National Trails Day on the first Saturday in June. The Trails Program compiles a listing of events to take place on trails or proposed trails sponsored by public agencies and trail interest groups. Events have included hikes or bike and horseback rides, dedications of new trails, and volunteer cleanup or maintenance projects.

NJDEP was named a National Trails Day Champion by American Hiking Society for three years in a row! NJDEP was also the only State agency individually recognized as a National Trails Day Champion in the 2019 report, which stated that "American Hiking recognizes the commitment of all the organizations involved in building National Trails Day into an outstanding day of fun and service. Each year, we honor a few organizations and brands that go above and beyond in planning and promoting events. New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection helped coordinated nearly 50 events throughout New Jersey to celebrate NTD. Events ranged from trail maintenance projects, to guide hikes, and community festivals".
