 National Trails Day Event Details! Mark your calendar! 

For the 5th year in a row The Cayuga Trails Club will host a National Trails Day® trail stewardship event on Saturday, June 3th, 2016.  

Give back to our beautiful hiking trails!  Please plan on joining us!  Participants will receive a National Trails Day t-shirt (awarded after participation) and the pride of knowing that you have made hiking local trails even better by devoting just a day of your time!  Project tools and lunch will be provided by the CTC!

The project is the re-opening of a section of the FLT that has been closed for several years!  The completion of this trail will eliminate a long road walk. This section begins on Old 76 Road and crosses some private property and then continues through Potato Hill State Forest emerging on Level Green Road.

This project will involve raking debris from the trail path, cutting back brush and removing blown down trees and other obstacles. The blazing will also need to be refreshed. The total length of the reclaimed trail section is approximately 2 miles. 

Parts of this event will qualify for the Hike 100 Challenge with the North Country Trail Association. Mileage will be calculated at the event.

American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day (NTD) is a celebration of America’s magnificent Trail System, occurring annually on the first Saturday in June. NTD features a series of outdoor activities, designed to promote and celebrate the importance of trails in the United States. Individuals, clubs and organizations from around the country host National Trails Day events to share their love of trails with friends, family, and their communities. NTD introduces thousands of Americans to a wide array of trail activities: hiking, biking, paddling, horseback riding, trail running, and bird watching and more. For public and private land managers alike, National Trails Day is a great time to showcase beautiful landscapes and special or threatened locales as thousands of people will be outside looking to participate in NTD events.

National Trails Day® evolved during the late ‘80s and ‘90s from a popular ethos among trail advocates, outdoor industry leaders and political bodies who wanted to unlock the vast potential in America’s National Trails System, transforming it from a collection of local paths into a true network of interconnected trails and vested trail organizations. This collective mindset hatched the idea of a singular day where the greater trail community could band together behind the NTD moniker to show their pride and dedication to the National Trails System.
