Better yet, you may want to volunteer & help out with local trail maintenance and repair projects. It’s a wonderful way to meet new people who share a common love of nature and the outdoors. In addition to the health benefits, Hiking is a great way to relieve the stresses of everyday living while exploring the wilderness. There are several different types of events planned for today including Bird-watching, Biking, Geocaching, Trail-riding, and wildlife photography. You can find out more about local events at the American Hiking Society’s website at http://www.americanhiking.org/national-trails-day/
The following is a little video I made of our Memorial Day hikes to show that when it comes to preserving our National Forests, one person can make a difference!
