Celebrate Trails @ Home

On Saturday, April 18, Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) hosted "Celebrate Trails @Home"—an all-virtual national celebration of trails!

Held on the same day we would have gathered to celebrate Opening Day for Trails in person, this 2020 home-based celebration brought together voices from the trails movement to share stories of hope, examples community resilience in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and appreciation for trails everywhere.

Thank you to everyone who tuned in for the special broadcast and celebrated trails with us! We hope you’ll continue to express gratitude and support for trails and the people who make them possible.


Keep sharing your “thank you” posts to trails—as notes, photos or videos—on social media using #CelebrateTrails. Be sure to tag @railstotrails so we can re-share them here!

And if they have a social media presence, tag your trail and/or trail management organization, too, so they can receive your thank you directly. You can look up contact information on TrailLink.com.

Propose Streets for Walking And Biking

One way you can celebrate trails with us is to consider where in your community you need more access for safe places to walk, bike and be active during COVID-19.

Is there a street in your neighborhood that you think should be closed to vehicle traffic to create more space for you and your neighbors to be outside and active at a safe social distance? Let us know where so we can show local officials how many places people need more access to the outdoors right now.
