About the trip

Be a steward of the lands we love

Every day is trails day for the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference, but on National Trails Day, we're helping them add a little extra celebration to their stewardship. National Trails Day events are held across the country recognizing the power trails have in connecting people with nature. Join us for a trip out of the city to celebrate the spaces we love at the Trail Conference's open house.

Take an informational walk to learn about navigation, relax with a yoga hike, help with invasive species removal, or engage in meaningful conversations with our partners while enjoying delicious food from local food trucks. You can even win great outdoor prizes with raffles and give-aways!

This is the perfect event for families and hikers looking for a variety of activities and challenge levels.
