|National Trails Day in Colorado
by Stormy on June 07, 2008
It's the national recognition of the outdoors, taking place as the summer season begins.
National Trails Day is a day to recognize outdoor recreation, going into the summer season. It takes place the first Saturday in June, a week after the Memorial Day weekend. In 2007 City of Aurora in Colorado started a tradition of marking National Trails Day locally by offering its residents and visitors the great outdoors.
On this second annual Aurora Trails Day attendees could participate in a competitive 5-K run, the prize being two round trip tickets anywhere Frontier Airlines flies. There were vendors and demonstrations, exhibits, a nature walk, a nature talk, a Geocaching adventure for those who wanted to explore treasure hunting and a family fun bicycle ride along the city's trails.
Aurora, just east of the City of Denver, is the third largest city in Colorado with a network of well developed trails and an abundance of parks. You can wait for the next National Trails Day to come and explore Aurora or you can come see what the city has to offer today!
