Hike a Refuge
From accessible boardwalks to bicycle paths to rugged mountain climbs, national wildlife refuges offer hundreds of opportunities to celebrate National Trails Day on June 1. The American Hiking Society sponsors National Trails Day to promote hiking, biking, horseback riding, paddling trips, birdwatching, geocaching and stewardship projects, many on national wildlife refuges.
The Refuge System Trails Guide invites you to click on a state and learn about each trail on a refuge – length, grade, surface and cross slope – plus special features and designations.
Many refuges are planning special events for National Trails Day.
