National Trails Day is Saturday – How Will the Hudson Valley Celebrate?
The first Saturday in June marks 'National Trails Day' and there are plenty of ways to celebrate, especially in the Hudson Valley!
You can volunteer to clean up a trail or be part of a service project, more info HERE.
There's the grand opening of the Hudson River Skywalk across the Rip Van Winkle Bridge.
You might even consider participating in the Hyde Park Trail End2End Hike-Walk-Fun Run on Saturday. Though the event is free, space is limited so pre-registration is required. The description on their facebook event page reads:
a 9-mile End-2-End trek from Top Cottage to Vanderbilt, via Val-Kill, the FDR Site and Riverfront Park. Bring everything you need for a 9-mile day of hiking: water, lunch, insect repellent, rain gear and other essentials. Park at the Vanderbilt Mansion, and we will shuttle you to the starting point (Sorry, no exceptions). The hike will finish at Vanderbilt.
We have so many beautiful trails in the Hudson Valley to let this day go by without visiting one, how will you celebrate?
