National Trails Day is June 4th and we have three exciting ways you can celebrate trails with us!
1. 🥾Volunteer for a project! 🥾 We’ll be hosting four trail maintenance projects June 4 across the state on trails in North, South, and East Idaho: Hawkins Loop in the Boise Foothills, Mickinnick near Sandpoint, Cherry Springs near Pocatello, and Purjue Canyon in the Owyhees. All of these are one-day trail projects suitable for hikers of varying abilities. No experience necessary to join. Click here to go to our project schedule.
2. 🌲 Take a hike and report it! 🌲 Going on a hike on June 4th? Fill out our quick survey for our Trail Reporter about trail conditions and you could win a prize! Your surveys help us and the Forest Service know where there are problems that need fixing on trails across the state. We’ll be giving away some awesome gear just for filling out our survey anytime from June 4-5! You can find our trail reporter here.
3. 🥳 Join us for an event! 🥳 We are a part of two events happening June 4 in Boise and Sandpoint:
a. Mother Earth Brew Co. is hosting a National Trails Day celebration in their new taproom in Boise featuring live music and five nonprofits including ITA that benefit trails and public lands from 4-8pm.
b. Come out to Utara Brewing in Sandpoint and join Friends of Scotman Peaks Wilderness and ITA in celebrating National Trails Day! There will be games from 5-8 pm and demonstrations of trail tools, including a crosscut saw demo!
