The AHM and St. Peter’s National Trails Day event will be held from 10 AM – 2 PM on June 3 and will feature two parts.
From 10 AM – 1 PM there will be an opportunity for community members to volunteer some time to help with beautification projects on the trail. Wear work shoes, bring gloves and clippers. Hot dogs provided!

Anyone interested in volunteering from 10 AM – 1 PM should meet at the trailhead on the AHM property located at 25 Pendleton Drive in Hebron. The 1 PM walk will also start at the trail head.
What is National Trails Day?
American Hiking Society’s National Trails Day ® (NTD) is a celebration of America’s magnificent Trail System, occurring annually on the first Saturday in June. NTD features a series of outdoor activities, designed to promote and celebrate the importance of trails in the United States. Individuals, clubs and organizations from around the country host National Trails Day ® events to share their love of trails with friends, family, and their communities. NTD introduces thousands of Americans to a wide array of trail activities: hiking, biking, paddling, horseback riding, trail running, and bird watching and more. For public and private land managers alike, National Trails Day ® is a great time to showcase beautiful landscapes and special or threatened locales as thousands of people will be outside looking to participate in NTD events.
