Please double-check with property managers before you go in case facility or property closures are in place. Be safe and Happy Trails Day!

Connecticut Trails Day 2021

Trails Day is a two-day national event (the first weekend in June) that pays tribute to all the wonderful trails our country has to offer. If there was ever a time to celebrate our amazing Connecticut trails, 2021 is it! Trails and open spaces have become the places to escape to and enjoy in challenging times. This year’s Trails Day will be different, but the spirit will be the same.

Connecticut Trails Day event registration will open on March 1. Click the link to the left and join us as a Trails Day leader. There are new guidelines for this year's Trails Day events so we can all participate safely. Please review these HERE before you start your event registration process.

                        Connecticut’s Trails Day – Join the celebration!

Connecticut Trails Day means something different to everyone. But one thing is for sure, CT loves trails! If you do too, lead your own event on June 5th or 6th.
