International Trails Day – Saturday June 3rd 2017

Every year the first Saturday of June is celebrated as International Trails Day. This year International Trails Day is June 3rd, 2017. It began in the US as National Trails Day in 1993 and since then it has been celebrated by many countries including Canada. It is a day marked to celebrate trails, the countless hours of development, the numerous people involved in making trails available to everyone, their uses and the healthy living they encourage.  It is also a day to raise public awareness of trails and the need to protect and maintain them. There will be lots happening on the trails this Saturday to celebrate this special day.

In Caledon we are so lucky to have two amazingly awesome trails running through it … The Trans Canada Trail and The Bruce Trail, so be sure to get out this Saturday in celebration of International Trails Day with family or friends.

The Trans Canada Trail is the world’s longest trail, developed and promoted by a non-profit registered charity. When completed, the Trail will stretch nearly 24,000 kilometres from the Atlantic to the Pacific to the Arctic oceans, linking Canadians in close to 1,000 communities. It is one of the world’s longest multi-use trails and runs right through our very own Caledon. The beautiful well kept trail can be used by hikers, cyclists, dog walkers, joggers and runners.

The Bruce Trail is Canada’s oldest and longest marked footpath, it provides the only continuous public access to the magnificent Niagara Escarpment and it’s a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve. Running along the Escarpment from Niagara to Tobermory, it spans more than 890 km of main Trail and over 400 km of associated side trails.
