Opening Day Is Less Than One Month Away! (Are You Ready?)

Posted 03/03/15 by Katie Harris in America's Trails, Trail Use

Is it springtime yet?

It will be soon…and that means it’s time to get ready for Opening Day—for trails, that is!

On March 28, 2015—people around the nation will be getting out to celebrate their favorite pathways and kick off spring in honor of RTC’s third annual Opening Day for Trails. Visit our Opening Day website, and make your official pledge to hit a trail on March 28.

(We understand that some of you will still have cold weather in late March, but we’re confident that you’re tough enough to join in on the festivities anyway!)

Here’s an exciting piece of news: This year, in partnership with RTC, 18 communities are hosting  Opening Day events. And in the lead up to March 28, we’ll bring you stories from some of these local hosts. The strength of the trail movement is building because of folks on the ground doing great work on trails and trail networks in their communities. Check our blog over the next month as we share some of their stories.

FYI: While we’re super thrilled that trail groups are celebrating with us this year, please note:  You don’t need to attend an official event to take part in Opening Day festivities. Just hitting the trail is enough!

Be a part of it; make your pledge to hit a trail on Opening Day.

Opening Day Feature: We’ll Be Seeing More of Baltimore—By Trail

Baltimore, Md., will be celebrating Opening Day in full force this year on the Jones Fall Trail. Check out RTC’s Opening Day website for more info.

Did you know that Baltimore lays claim to some of the oldest urban parks in the country?

Three distinct stream valleys serve as home to the Gwynns Falls, Jones Falls and Herring Run trails, which meander through the city. And within these corridors, you’ll find some of the largest urban forests east of the Mississippi!
