I pledge to HIKE 40 miles, 40 trails, or 40 unique hikes to support American Hiking Society's Outreach programs, National Trails Day and Families on Foot. Let's get outside, bring our youth and families closer to Nature. You don't have to go far. The trail starts right at your door.
For 40 years, American Hiking Society has been committed to increasing Americans’ participation in and enjoyment of hiking and conducts outreach through events, educational materials and partnerships with other recreation and conservation organizations.
June 4, 2016 is our 24th National Trails Day, the largest celebration of trails in the country. Find an event near you to add to your HIKE 40 at nationaltrailsday.americanhiking.org.
