BENEFITING: American Hiking Society
ORGANIZER: American Hiking Society
EVENT: Hike 40
Hikes/Trails/Miles Completed: 3
In memory of Titus, beloved Newfie and hiking buddy of nearly 14 years, Hamlet and 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. We are doing this to raise awareness of dog-friendly Wisconsin trails and hiking opportunities. Committed to Leave No Trace principles, we hope to inspire others to go outside and play with their families and four legged friends. Please do not feel pressured to donate; however, please DO share photos of you and your pets' hikes and suggestions for trails to explore.
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.
