Celebrate Trails Day, formerly Opening Day For Trails, takes place April 24th and kicks off the unofficial start to trail season. Join in the celebration, and show your love for trails with a walk, run, bike ride, and even a virtual scavenger hunt! This year the theme is #RecreateResponsibly so that everyone can celebrate trails safely. Sign up to officially participate, and see people across the nation who are also getting out on trails today on the Rails to Trails website. GoPhillyGo is the best way to double down on your commitment to the environment by planning a sustainable commute to your Celebrate Trails Day activity.
Download the GoPhillyGo Android app or save the mobile website to your homescreen to plan walking, biking, and transit trips to parks, trails, events, and more. We made a list of some destinations and ways you can celebrate trails and the joy they bring us throughout the year. Practice social distancing and wear a face covering every time you visit parks and trails so everyone can enjoy the physical and mental benefits of being outdoors.
