I pledge to HIKE 40 miles, 40 trails, or 40 unique hikes to support American Hiking Society's Outreach programs, National Trails Day and Families on Foot.
For 40 years, American Hiking Society has been committed to increasing Americans’ participation in and enjoyment of hiking and conducts outreach through events, educational materials and partnerships with other recreation and conservation organizations.
June 4, 2016 is our 24th National Trails Day, the largest celebration of trails in the country. Find an event near you to add to your HIKE 40 at nationaltrailsday.americanhiking.org. Or get tips and tricks to get your family out on the trail while supporting our Families on Foot initiative.
The three hikers with the top pledges for American Hiking Society's Outrach program by their 40th birthday on October 13, 2016 will win a prize package including Leki poles, an Adventure Medical Kit, a Columbia backpack.
