What is National Trails Day?
According to the American Hiking Society, National Trails Day is our nations largest celebration of trails. On this day, June 7th, organizations and groups nationwide celebrate America’s trails by organizing hikes, stewardship projects, bike rides, horseback rides, and other activities.
It would be great to have some Boulder County horse owners on this project since we use this trail a lot!
When you sign-up please be sure to let OSMP know that you’re with the Boulder County Horse Association.
