Celebrate Rails to Trails Opening Day on April 8

This year marks the fifth annual Opening Day hosted by the Rails to Trails Conservancy. On Saturday, April 8, 2017, people across the nation will kick off the spring by hitting their favorite trail for a ride, run, walk or special event.

There are more than 120 special events taking place at trails nationwide. All events are listed on the Rails to Trails Conservancy website and include 5k races, group rides, and even a fist-bump record attempt!

If you take the pledge to get out on the trail on Opening Day, you are entered to win a giveaway. Prizes consist of Fuji bikes, helmets, and Rails to Trails swag. Tag @railstotrails on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram and use the hashtag #RTCOpeningDay to share how you will enjoy your day on the trails!
