2023 Celebrate Trails Day

Join the WVLT and others across the nation for the fourth annual Celebrate Trails Day, an annual spring celebration of America’s trails, started by Rails-to-Trails Conservancy. We will be hosting a series of events on Saturday, April 22 including trail clean-ups, a tree identification walk, and social bike rides. The tree walk and the social bike ride will have limited participant spots.
