Opening Day for Trails


COVID-19 UPDATE

Public health and safety is Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s (RTC) top priority. This year, to prioritize the safety and wellbeing of the trails community as the COVID-19 situation continues to evolve, we have made the difficult but necessary decision to postpone all April 18th Opening Day for Trails events until further notice. We do hope that there is an opportunity to celebrate trails on Opening Day and we will share updates as soon as we have them. Please watch this space and follow @railstotrails on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for the most up-to-date information.

Started by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy in 2013, Opening Day for Trails is the national kickoff celebration for the spring trail season. Each year, Opening Day encourages people to get outside and celebrate America’s exceptional trails and their many benefits—including health, recreation, transportation and beyond.
