CT Trails Day 2018... planning underway!

Connecticut is proud to once again have hosted the largest National Trails Day® celebration in the nation in 2017.  Although we are a state small in size, we are big on outdoor fun!

We had 236(!) events to choose from and over 3,000 people joined us to celebrate and rally for the trails of Connecticut. Special thanks to all our 2017 event leaders, volunteers, sponsors, and partners who made CT Trails Day such a great success - we couldn’t have done it without you!

We are already planning for June 2 & 3, 2018. Event registration is now open. March 15 is the deadline to have an event included in our popular Trails Day booklet and online directory. May 15 is the deadline for just online directory submissions. We hope you will consider sharing your love and passion for trails on this special weekend in June. 


Our friends at White Memorial Conservation Center shared this video of their 2017 Trails Day event - "Amphibian Amble". Just a little inspiration for those planning a 2018 event!
