June 2 is National Trails Day on the California Coastal Trail
Saturday, June 2, 2018, is National Trails Day! We hope you’ll celebrate the day on the California Coastal Trail. The CCT has something for everyone, from sandy beaches to windswept bluffs. It’s a great spot for a hike or a stroll, or just to enjoy the view.
You can find trail information and maps on the Coastwalk page here: http://www.californiacoastaltrail.info/cms/pages/main/index.html And some great inspiration in the KCET series of short films on trail segments here: https://www.kcet.org/shows/california-coastal-trail
We invite our partners to plan events along the California Coastal Trail for National Trails Day. The American Hiking Society has compiled resources to help plan and promote events, available here: https://americanhiking.org/national-trails-day/host-information/
You can also register your event with the American Hiking Society so more people can find it!
If you do plan an event, email us on email@example.com so we can help spread the word on our social media channels.
And tag #ExploreTheCoast and #NationalTrailsDay to promote and share your adventure!
Have fun on the California Coastal Trail!
