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 and I’m excited to begin my seventh year as Connecticut Forest & Park Association’s 2023 CT Trails Day Coordinator. It’s our 30th anniversary, so this year is a special honor to explore all that Connecticut’s trails have to offer.
If you’ve led an event before, thank you for taking thousands of guests over our trails, rocks, rivers, and rides and for 30 years of leadership and your love of the outdoors. Connecticut leads the nation in Trails Day events and the reason for that is you! We couldn’t do it without you, so having you back this year makes it extra special.
For those of you who are a new leader, welcome. We are here to help you plan a successful and safe CT Trails Day. You are joining a select group of extraordinary outdoor leaders. In the coming weeks, our leader e-newsletters will 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.
