What is National Trails Day?

National Trails Day is an annual nationwide campaign organized by the American Hiking Society. We're proud to join in on the celebration and host a major trail work event with our community!

Hundreds of volunteers join us each year to help care for over 20 different trails throughout the Santa Cruz Mountains. We team up with local non-profits and businesses to make it happen. There’s be sunshine, good times, lots of digging, and a massive party to close out the day. Check out a video from the event in 2023 below to get a feel!
