2018 National Trails DayNational Trails Day - June 1, 2019

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.

The American Hiking Society just released its 2019 National Trails Day final report in which NJDEP was named a National Trails Day Champion for the third year in a row! The report states 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.”

NJDEP is the only State agency individually recognized as a National Trails Day Champion.
