Connecticut Trails Day 2016
Hikers on the Groton X-Town Trail

We did it again!

Connecticut is proud to host the largest National Trails Day® celebration in the nation.  Although we are a state small in size, we are big on outdoor fun!

This year we had 223 events in 133 towns to choose from. Thanks to everyone who attended an event and helped make this weekend such a great celebration. We hope you had fun and discovered a new favorite trail. Special thanks to all our 2016 event leaders, volunteers, sponsors, and partners who helped make this Trails Day such a great success- we couldn’t do it without you!

Our online directory is still live. Use it year-round to discover new hikes and trails throughout the state.

Thousands of people got outside on June 4th & 5th to participate in events celebrating Trails Day 2016!

There wouldn't be a CT Trails Day Celebration without generous sponsors. Thank you for helping to make the largest National Trails Day® celebration in the nation possible!
