American Hiking Society, the only national organization dedicated to promoting and protecting hiking trails, their surrounding natural areas and the hiking experience, announced that this year's National Trails Day is Saturday.
National Trails Day 2008 is the largest annual single-day trails celebration in the country, with nearly 1,000 events taking place from coast to coast. Events feature hiking, biking, horseback riding, paddling, trail work projects, new trail dedications and more. The event takes place in all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, in local, state and national parks, forests and other public lands.  
National Trails Day 2008 is made possible thanks to the volunteer efforts of American Hiking Society's individual and alliance members
as well as by the generous support
of our lead sponsor, Nature Valley; and our partners, Lipton Tea,
Merrell, REI, and Trimble Outdoors; our friends at Eastern Mountain Sports; media sponsors Backpacker magazine and American Park Network; as well as our federal agency partners, Bureau of Land Management, Federal Highway Administration, National Park Service, USDA Forest Service and U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service.
