Welcome to the Trails 50 blog

Welcome to the Trails 50 blog! This blog will highlight the many exciting events and opportunities happening  along the National Trails System (NTS), and we’ll share information about each of the four components of the NTS: National Scenic Trails, National Historic Trails, National Recreation Trails, and Rail Trails. 

Whether you’re a hiker, biker, horseback rider, history buff, photographer, nature lover, or trail volunteer, we’ll have stories and information that you’ll want to know and share.

Do you have a great trail story you want to share with us? We’d love to hear it!

New to the trails?  We’ll help you #findyourtrail with trail profiles, facts, and helpful information for first-time trail users.

We have great Trails 50 merchandise available in our Shop, including apparel, patches, pins, hats, and more. 

Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram for your regular dose of trail magic, including Trail Trivia, beautiful images from the trails, and more.  Sign up for our monthly newsletter to receive announcements and stay in the know.
