Happy National Trails Day!
The good news is that many cities are investing in innovative urban trails to keep their residents healthy, happy, and connected to nature. Even some of the most densely populated metro areas in America now boast great opportunities to hit the trail right in town—and there are more amazing places in the making.
The Trust for Public Land is hard at work on creating more urban trails—from New York City's QueensWay to Chicago’s 606. Got your own vision for the trails of the future? Tell us about it in the comments.
And while you're out celebrating this weekend, whether on a trail in the city or on a far flung mountaintop, be sure to share snapshots of your adventures in the #OurLand community gallery. Happy National Trails Day!
