ABOUT TRAILS DAY
On the fourth Saturday each July, in collaboration with governments, agencies, and non-profit groups, we organize events throughout the county for all ages and abilities to promote various outdoor activities from birdwatching, hiking, skateboarding, biking, park cleanups, habitat restoration, and trail maintenance.
This year, Trails Day falls on
Saturday, July 25th!
WHY TRAILS DAY?
A love of the outdoors is fairly common. However, not everyone makes a habit of getting out, nor do they necessarily know where to go for even basic outdoor recreation. To address this, and promote parks and trails in general, we recruit event hosts and coordinate the promotion of Trails Day events they wish to hold. Our goal is to make getting outside and being active easy and accessible while also fostering a sense of stewardship among residents.
In 2019, over 700 people participated in over 25 events for all ages and abilities. Thanks to all of our partners, co-sponsors (and of course participants) for making Pierce County Trails Day 2019 such a great success.
We're already gearing up to make it even better in 2020 but we need YOU!
