National Trails Day

There’s a good chance that you were already planning on getting out and hiking this weekend, but if you haven’t already made your weekend plans, you should definitely hit the trails in celebration!

The American Hiking Society calls National Trails Day (NTD) a “celebration of America’s magnificent Trail System”. America certainly does have some incredible trails (many of which are right here in the Ozarks) that span for over 200,000 miles and lead to some truly wonderful sights.

Not only does hiking give you access to some of America’s most incredible views, it’s also an activity that’s great for your physical and mental health. Get some fresh air, exercise, and explore nature by celebrating NTD this weekend!

There are many different ways to participate in National Trails Day. You can go for a solo hike along your favorite trail, or discover a new trail with your friends and family. You can also participate in one of the many events going on across the country.

There are a few National Trails Day events near Northwest Arkansas this year:

You can visit the American Hiking Society website for a full list of National Trails Day events.

Whether you decide to take part in one of the NTD events, or if you choose to celebrate National Trails Day on your own favorite trail, we can help you get the gear you need to hike comfortably. We carry hiking boots and backpacks, and everything in between. Stop by the store before you get out to this weekend, and we will get you set up with the right gear.
