On September 29, the Appalachian Trail Conservancy invites families of all ages and hiking abilities to join us for Family Hiking Day. Bring your loved ones, get outside, and experience the adventure of being active on the Appalachian Trail (A.T.)! Held on National Public Lands Day, Family Hiking Day is an opportunity to introduce your family to America’s premier footpath and all of the benefits that come from being active and spending time outdoors.
Check back here for information about Family Hiking Day events and group hikes, closer to the date.
For more information on planning a family hike throughout the year and suggestions of family-friendly day hikes on the A.T., visit appalachiantrail.org/FamilyHike.
