Join us for a conversation about gearing up for a cross-country trail trek like the Great American Rail-Trail and what it takes to travel across the country by trail! We’ll have resources to help you think through how to prepare and what you need to know in advance—whether you’re planning a trip for Celebrate Trails Day or beyond. Plus, we’ll discuss how these spaces bring incredible value to our everyday lives, contributing to the well-being of people, places and the planet.

Across the country, there are 41,000+ miles of multiuse trails on the ground and some of these trails connect to create longer-distance trail experiences—giving us all plenty of places to get outside and plenty of reasons to celebrate!

This conversation is part of RTC’s Celebrate Trails Day Virtual Event Series—weekly explorations of the many ways trails contribute to the well-being of people, places and the planet.

Celebrate Trails Day takes place on the 4th Saturday in April each year, shining a spotlight on the joy and impact that the nation’s trails and connected trail networks bring to people’s lives.

Learn more + plan to #CelebrateTrails with us on Saturday, April 27.
