Celebrate National Trail Days in the James River Park!
Every year the first Saturday in June is celebrated as National Trails Day. The brainchild of the American Hiking Society, this day promotes the belief that trail experiences improve lives.
This year JRPS is hosting a number of activities to celebrate our trails on this special day. Join one of these local meet-up groups to meet new people and share the fun as they hike, bike and climb on the park trails. All events are free and open to the public.
