RICHMOND — National Trails Day takes place on the first Saturday in June and recognizes all the benefits federal, state and local trails provide for recreation and exposure to nature.

“Getting families together for an opportunity to bond and build stronger outdoor skills is really important and National Trails Day focuses on that connection while educating park visitors about the wide variety of services the trail systems offer,” Virginia State Parks Director Dr. Melissa Baker said.
