ABOUT NATIONAL TRAILS DAY:
National Trails Day is celebrated with special events throughout the United States and is considered the largest and most influential trails celebration in the country. Every year, the American Hiking Association helps citizens organize hundreds of trails projects throughout the country. The Open Space Division and other local organizations including the U.S. Forest Service, REI, Friends of the Sandia Mountains, and the Open Space Alliance have planned an exciting day of trails projects that will take place at the Elena Gallegos Open Space. The theme for NTD 2010 is “Find Your Happy Place.” This is your opportunity to get outside and contribute to our outdoor recreational heritage by improving and maintaining the Sandia Foothills trails systems.
National Trails Day serves three main purposes: 1) Educate the public on the importance of trails and their conservation; 2) Strengthen alliances of different agencies that work together beyond National Trails Day; 3) Create new trail advocates.
NATIONAL TRAILS DAY IS SPONSORED LOCALLY IN PART BY REI, WHOLE FOODS, LA MONTANITA COOP, THE OPEN SPACE ALLIANCE, FRIENDS OF THE SANDIA MOUNTAINS, and SPORTS SYSTEMS.
Join the Sandia Ranger District in constructing a new multi-use trail near the decomissioned Deadman Campground.
