In celebration of Rails-to-Trails Conservancy’s (RTC) seventh annual Opening Day for Trails (Opening Day) on Saturday, April 13, Simon Kenton Pathfinders will be hosting a dog walk, run, bike ride, or hike with friends. The event will take place at the Depot Coffee House, 644 Miami St. from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. The first 30 to register will receive a gift.
As the nation’s kickoff to the trail season, Opening Day invites walkers, runners, cyclists, and outdoors enthusiasts from across the country to celebrate spring by exploring trails in their community. Simon Kenton Pathfinders will be hosting the event to bring the community together to share health and fitness on the trail.
In 2018, people nationwide celebrated Opening Day by visiting a trail in their neighborhood, or by joining one of the special events offered around the country. This year, trail users can once again plan to join the celebration and find events happening in honor of Opening Day by visiting www.railstotrails.org/openingday.
“Opening Day for Trails is the perfect opportunity for people across the country to celebrate America’s spectacular trail system—and to connect with one another. Whether it’s to play, exercise, volunteer, spend time in nature, explore their community or all of the above, Opening Day brings together trail users of all variety to appreciate and enjoy these treasured outdoor spaces,” said Ryan Chao, RTC president. “This year’s Opening Day promises to be another terrific celebration, and we can’t wait to see you all out there.”
