CT Trails Day Introduction

Each year on the first Saturday of June, we come together to celebrate National Trails Day. National Trails Day is a day of public events aimed at advocacy and trail service started by the American Hiking Society. As the state affiliate for the American Hiking Society, CFPA was an early adopter of the National Trails Day program. With over 200 events, Connecticut has elevated to the national stage by hosting more events than any other state. Now, Connecticut Trails Day has expanded into a two-day celebration at many locations throughout our state. Join us the first weekend in June to celebrate trails and the outdoors by promoting recreational activities to protect our trails for future generations.

A Message from our CT Trails Day Coordinator

Hi, I’m Chuck, Connecticut Forest & Park Association’s Trails Day Coordinator for 2024. A warm welcome back to the hundreds of event leaders who have safely guided thousands of participants on Connecticut’s beautiful trails and rivers. Your leadership has made our state’s Trails Day weekend the largest in the country. Welcome back and thank you for leading a 2024 event.  We could never have done it without you!

For anyone who is thinking about leading an event for the first time, it takes a bit of coordinating, but it’s a blast, too. You are joining a select group of extraordinary outdoor leaders. Watch our leader e-newsletters in the coming weeks. We’ll give you tips and suggestions to help you get the word out. The earlier you plan, the more you and your guests will have a safe and fun Trails Day. The CFPA Trails Day team wants to make it easy for you.

CT Trails Day – Join our neighbors to give back to our state’s trails and build a world where everyone feels welcome and has access to the outdoors.
