Opening Day for Trails
Saturday, April 13, 2019, marked RTC’s seventh annual Opening Day for Trails!
Opening Day for Trails is the national kickoff celebration for the spring trail season. Started by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy in 2013, Opening Day encourages people to get outside and celebrate America’s exceptional trails and trail systems. On April 13, 2019, people across the nation kicked off the spring trail season by hitting their favorite trails for a walk, run, ride or special event.
“Opening Day for Trails is the perfect opportunity for people across the country to celebrate America’s spectacular trail system—and to connect with one another. Whether it’s to play, exercise, volunteer, spend time in nature, explore their community or all of the above, Opening Day brings together trail users of all variety to appreciate and enjoy these treasured outdoor spaces."
—Ryan Chao, RTC president
