On the last Saturday each July, in collaboration with governments, agencies, non-profit groups (and, well, anyone!) we organize events throughout the county for all ages and abilities to promote outdoor activities from birdwatching, hiking, skateboarding, biking, park cleanups, habitat restoration, trail maintenance and more!

Life is busy and not everyone makes a habit of getting outside. Many do not even know where to go for basic outdoor recreation. To address this, and promote parks and trails in general, we recruit event hosts and coordinate the promotion of their Trails Day activities. Our goal is to make getting outside and being active easy and accessible while also fostering a sense of stewardship. It's amazing and affordable fun for all. Check out our recent Trails Day Reports!

ForeverGreen Trails is but a coordinator and promoter — we need partners like YOU to host Trails Day activities. Hosting is super easy and fun! All activities are free and within Pierce County on Trails Day, the last Saturday each July (or the day before to kick off Trails Day). Aside from that, your imagination is the only limitation. You determine the start and end times, group size, location, challenge, etc. (see below for examples of previous events). Detailed information about how to host is hereIf you have questions about hosting a Trails Day event next year, please contact us. We will add a host signup form for 2023 soon.



All Pierce Transit buses are FREE on Trails Day!

Also, Pierce Trips is hosting a #Transit2Trails photo contest. You can win an electronic copy of the WA edition of the Transit Trekker Manual and other prizes by posting photos of your trip on Facebook or Twitter using the hashtag #Transit2Trails and tagging @piercetrips.

These resources will help you get to Trails Day activities and parks and trails in general without driving there:
