Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) is pleased to join our friends at REI each year in encouraging people to #OptOutside on Black Friday and spend more time outdoors every day.

Because we know there’s no better way to spend time outdoors than on the trail, we invited you to join us outside on Friday, Nov. 29, on one of your favorites and share the moment! Thank you to the millions who opted outside—and to all of you who helped inspire them by sharing your trail outings on social media.

We were wowed by all of your adventures, such as:

Hiking …

Seeing the Sights with Furry Friends

And bonding with loved ones.

Again, thank you to everyone who shared their trail adventures!

And we would like to give a special shout-out to three lucky trail users whose #OptOutside social media posts won them our newest gear:

We hope you’ll continue to make spending time outside part of your everyday life and choose to opt to act in support of trails and the great outdoors.

Check out REI’s ideas for making a difference for these treasured spaces all year long—and be inspired by these other great moments!
